Problem

The trenches contained cables which ran from the power station at the top of the hill down to access points for vehicles including media trucks and vans, meaning that safe and easy access was essential.  Bolted covers which had a non-slip surface were vital as they were in a public place used by pedestrians and joggers.

Solution

Fibrelite designed and manufactured bolted trench covers and frames to fit directly into the new location and prevent unauthorised access. Due to Fibrelite covers’ unrivalled strength to weight ratio, all trench covers can be safely and quickly removed by two people using the FL7 lifting handle. This ensures safe lifting from waist height, eliminating pinch points and potential back injuries.

Results

Duke University has a lightweight covering solution which can be safely and quickly removed without the need for lifting equipment, eliminating any risk of injury and increasing efficiency.
