GRP Trench Covers

Structural Covers for Pedestrian & Vehicle Crossings

Cable & Pedestrian Trench Covers Suitable for the Rail Industry

Dura Slab Heavy Duty covers allow easy access, are lightweight, and can be fitted with built-in lifting eyes, complete with anti-slip gritted top walking surface.

Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications, to replace old, heavy & cumbersome traditional flooring materials. The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for a variety of covers rather than using steel, timber or concrete systems due to its lower weight, anti-slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.

Dura Slab Trench Covers

Max Strength with Anti-Slip Surface & Easy Removal for Access of Wiring, Pipework etc.

Dura Slab is Suitable for High Strength Applications and Has Been Tested to B.S. EN124

This European standard applies to duct covers and manhole tops for vehicular and pedestrian areas. In order to reach this approval a Dura Slab duct cover panel of 74mm thickness and 1280mm span was subjected to a load equivalent to two thirds of the Class B test load, 83.3kN, and then reduced to zero.

Fibreglass High Strength, Low Weight Covers Do Not Require Any Lifting Equipment, are Low Cost, Anti-Slip and Low Maintenance

Fibreglass structural covers are lightweight, high strength, anti-slip and easily removed for maintenance access. Dura Slab covers can easily be lifted by one, two or four man teams using standard lifting keys. Dura Slab has been engineered for use as structural covers where incredible strength to weight is important.

Fibreglass Covers are Immensely Strong and Lightweight. The Walking Surface is Gritted for Incredible Anti-Slip Traction

Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for cable duct covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications to replace old, heavy and cumbersome traditional flooring materials and covers. The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for cable duct covers rather than using steel, timber or concrete systems due to its lower weight, anti-slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.

If your Trench Covers or Cable Troughs require constant visual inspection or enhanced drainage, you may want to consider our alternative GRP solution, Dura Grating.

Dura Grating is a moulded anti-slip composite floor grating system constructed from fibreglass as a cost effective alternative to traditional grating materials such as mild steel, stainless steel grating, aluminium or wood.

Dura Composites open mesh fibreglass grating is anti slip, lightweight, strong and durable making it the ideal choice for use as Trench, Gully & Duct Covers in the rail industry. Dura Grating is considerably lighter than concrete and provides excellent bi-directional mechanical properties.

Dura Grating is available in three colours in the standard range, four colours in the mini mesh range, and in grey as standard for the micro mesh range.
