Fibrelite Trench Covers Installed over Cable Chamber in German Substation

Read the Case Study

Fibrelite trench covers have replaced integrated steel and concrete panel providing a protective covering for a cable chamber at a German substation.

The facility employs maintenance operatives who need to regularly lift the trench covers in order to make checks and repairs to the cabling. However, the previously installed covers weren’t easy to open because each one weighed around 200 kg!

The Composite Solution

Although the client had to make some adjustments to the existing rebate, Fibrelite’s FRP GRP composite, light-duty trench covers proved to have a number of advantages over traditional materials. Firstly, the covers are lightweight – typically a third of the weight of an equivalent-size metal or concrete cover – and can be lifted by workers using the Fibrelite specialist lifting handles instead of specialist lifting equipment.

In addition, the ergonomically designed lifting handle has the added benefit of eliminating the risk of back injury and crushed fingers for operatives.

An anti-slip finish is an additional safety benefit with non-slip treads moulded into the product at the manufacturing stage making Fibrelite covers a safer alternative to concrete or metal whatever the weather conditions.
