Problem

The existing trench covers were of very low quality and could not sustain loading from pedestrian traffic. As the boundary wall was being re-located exposing the trench covers to potential pedestrian traffic, it was essential that the replacement covers were designed to withstand a loading of 1.5 ton tonne (A15).

Solution

Fibrelite manufactured, supplied and fitted approx. 195 metres of bespoke trench covers within a very tight build programme working alongside the principal contractor. The covers had to be designed to accommodate directional changes in the existing trench without any additional support being fitted. As part of the trench covering system was used to extend over a pedestrian cross-over, it was also essential that the covers complied with the appropriate skid/slip resistant requirements which come on all Fibrelite covers as standard.
