Pharmaceutical Facility,
County Durham, UK

Bespoke Fibrelite covers accommodate varying trench widths and pipe and cable tray penetrations at UK pharmaceutical facility

Project overview

Fibrelite was approached by McLaughlin & Harvey to design and supply a custom trench access covering solution for a new build project in County Durham to accommodate a variety of trench widths, shapes and pipe and cable tray penetrations, required within a tight build schedule. The client is a high-profile developer of innovative products for the pharmaceutical industry.


The client needed a bespoke, tailor made covering solution to cover their variety of trench widths and shapes including accommodation for pipe and cable tray penetrations. Quick easy access to trenches was also required. This project had an extremely tight timeline to minimize minimise disruption to the facility.

Custom Fibrelite trench access covers designed with cut-outs to accommodate piping and cabling.


Fibrelite designed and engineered a bespoke FRP GRP composite trench access cover solution with the following key features:

  • A variety of unique cover dimensions and configurations to accommodate trench shapes, depths and pipe and cable tray penetrations
  • Lightweight – covers can be safely removed and replaced manually by two people using the FL7 lifting handles
  • Maintenance free and corrosion resistant

Covers were manufactured and delivered on site within the tight construction schedule

Fibrelite’s FRP GRP composite trench access covers can be easily and safely manually removed by two people.
