Fibrelite Supply Trench Access Covers to a Power Station

Read the Case Study

Stage One – Out With the Old

This UK Power Station removed old fashioned concrete and steel covers that were now severely damaged and replaced them with Fibrelite’s lightweight Trench Access Covers. Previously, a forklift and lifting equipment had to be used every time one of the old covers needed to be removed, a costly and time-consuming exercise. Now a single person can easily and safely remove the Fibrelite covers, a refreshingly simple and inexpensive task.

As you can clearly see from the images, the tired, cracked and crumbling concrete and bowed rusting steel covers have not only seen better days but are causing on site health and safety issues. All these hazards are to be eliminated with our non-corrosive, non-cracking, slip resistant and incredibly strong composite trench panels.
