Heavy trench covers are history

(Top) heavy metal trench covers come with inherent H&S hazards & often require specialized specialised lifting equipment (Bottom) lightweight Fibrelite FRP GRP trench covers eliminate manual handling risks

Once in a while, a product will come along whose performance will drive a change in standards across entire industries. Like stainless steel. Or concrete. Or a trench cover which is over 80% lighter than the cast iron traditionally used, eliminating the need for costly specialized specialised lifting equipment and the accompanying health and safety hazards. And, unlike metal and concrete infill covers, it’s engineered from a FRP GRP composite material which is inert and impervious to corrosion from water and salt, as well as many other corrosive constituents.

Changing the standard for health & safety

Fibrelite’s FRP GRP composite trench and manhole covers are fast usurping metal and concrete covers to become the standard for high-performance industries like airports, commercial ports, leisure cruise terminals, military and defense, defence, power generation (both traditional and renewables), and data centers, centres, with companies like Magnox, The National Grid, all branches of the UK armed forces, and the world’s largest technology brands specifying Fibrelite covers for new build and retrofit projects.

A bright future for Fibrelite

I’ve been a part of the Fibrelite journey since 2011, and it’s been exciting to play a part in driving the upgrade from traditional concrete and metal trench and manhole covers to FRP GRP composites in myriad industries, especially those where manual handling is critical, and seeing how we’ve helped increase health and safety and performance in those industries. We expect to see more and more industries make the upgrade to Fibrelite composite covers, especially in mission-critical areas.
