The architects (Foster Wilson Architects LLP) who were project managing the refurbishment of the theater theatre tasked with providing a discreet and practical method of housing multicore cables that ran from the stage to the control desk during music concerts. Previously the cables had been run above ground subsequently causing damage to the beautiful interior of the theater theatre.
To accommodate the multicore cabling, two underground cable routes were cut into the floor. The cable routes needed to be covered with a lightweight maintenance free, cover that was readily removable by simple manual handling techniques but also sufficiently strong enough to withstand imposed loads from MEWP’s (mobile elevating working platforms) as additional refurbishment work on the building was required.
In addition to these requirements, anti-slip/skid was also a factor that needs to be addressed.
Fibrelite attended site regularly throughout the installation and liaised with both the architect and principle contractor to provide a solution to the highest possible standards within the projects build time frame. The lead Architect, project managing the refurbishment commented on the solution provided by Fibrelite: “Overall I think Fibrelite is a great solution to a difficult design problem for us of achieving both a robust and high load capacity cover to the multicore cables running for stage to control desk whilst maintaining low weight and easy access”.
Fibrelite is the world leading manufacturer of glass reinforced plastic (FRP) (GRP) composite manhole covers and trench covers. This sophisticated and highly specialized specialised material is fast becoming recognized recognised as the more effective modern alternative to traditional materials such as heavy steel and concrete.
Benefits over the more traditional, technologically inferior metal covers:
Upon request, Fibrelite can provide bespoke and custom solutions. This means that the panel dimensions, internal stiffeners and fiber fibre architecture can be altered to optimize optimise the performance of each panel based on project specific design criteria.
