Trinity Shopping Centre, Leeds, UK

Fibrelite supply shopping center centre with 90m of composite trench covers

Project overview

190 Fibrelite trench covers are now installed in the state of the art Trinity Shopping Center Centre in Leeds. The consulting engineers specified Fibrelite for this project for ease of access to cable ducts that run all over the site. The panels are non-slip for a safe working environment in busy service areas in the center centre.

British made composite trench panels

With the head office in Skipton, North Yorkshire (and also manufacturing facilities in the US and Malaysia) Fibrelite is the world’s leading and largest manufacturer of composite manhole, trench and access covers and recognized recognised internationally as an innovator in composite technology.

Fibrelite: The one-stop-shop for trench covers

Fibrelite’s trench panels have a standard width of 450mm, with lengths ranging from 800 to 1600mm. With lengths increasing in 50mm increments (800, 850, 900mm and so on) the customer found that all requirements for different load ratings and sizes could be catered for by Fibrelite. For this project B125, C250 and D400 panels were all used in lengths of 800, 1000, 1400 and 1600mm.
