Fibrelite Supply Trench Covers for Natural Spring at a school in Settle
Fibrelite’s composite access covers offer easy access for operators who regularly need to access the chambers that house natural spring water to supply the school. Due to the nature of what is underground, the covers need to be easy access for operators who regularly check and monitor the levels and quality of the water. The chambers are in a remote location where access to the site is difficult so ease of access and safety are critical.
Fibrelite’s access covers are lightweight, durable and very strong. Every Fibrelite cover is manufactured using high technology resin transfer moulded production methods to create a highly engineered, monolithic composite product.
No Compromise on Performance
Upon request, Fibrelite can provide bespoke and custom solutions. This means that the panel dimensions, internal stiffeners and ﬁbre architecture can be altered to optimise the performance of each panel based on project speciﬁc design criteria.
Innovative. Durable. Practical. Proven.
Extremely Heavy Slate Tiles Replaced With Lightweight Composite Covers
Original slate tiles were covering the natural spring which caused a health and safety issue and needed replacing. Fibrelite’s super light duty composite trench covers were identified as the solution. Designed as a ‘consistently dependable’ ‘fit and forget’ product, the maintenance free covers provide easy and safe access to the chambers.
Highly Effective in Preventing Heavy Lifting
Fibrelite’s trench covers have proved highly effective in reducing health and safety issues and potential damage to essential valve equipment.
