A major UK construction company required a covering solution for a newly constructed culvert. This was located close to a pedestrian walkway area so would have frequent pedestrian traffic. Due to the shape and dimensions, it required a “cassette” of bespoke covers and additional support beams.
When Fibrelite was approached the culvert was already under construction. The challenge was to provide a bespoke “cassette” of specifically shaped covers to fit the existing culvert along with the appropriate support beam structure within a limited time frame.
The Fibrelite “cassette” was designed, engineered and installed to the specified time frame. The covers supplied were molded moulded to shape in the Fibrelite factory and supplied as a complete unit ready for installation.
The covers are maintenance free and suitable for a safe two-person manual lift employing the supplied ergonomically designed Fibrelite lifting handles, allowing lifting from waist level preventing back injuries. As the covers are located very close to a pedestrian walkway area the standard Fibrelite tread pattern provided the perfect slip resistance required.
