Read the Case Study

Project Overview

This private estate refurbishment project was brought to Fibrelite by Ramtech Energy Services, who were looking to replace the site’s previously installed, heavily corroded concrete covers which were covering pipes and wiring supplying the manor.

Innovative. Durable. Practical. Proven.

Problem

The client singled out their concrete trench access covers for immediate replacement before they completely deteriorated. The covers had become heavily fractured and chipped over time, allowing the trench to be contaminated with dust and debris.

The previously installed concrete covers were also very heavy with (hired) specialist lifting equipment required to remove them: making it a time consuming and expensive process. They also posed a risk of injury to maintenance teams.
