Our lightweight but strong GRP trench covers are used extensively in the Energy Production sector to provide protection for underground services as an alternative to heavy and cumbersome steel or concrete covers.
They are designed for maximum versatility and can be used in conjunction with precast flat top concrete troughs as well as those with a factory formed recess which enables a flush fitting with the floor surface.
The light but strong nature of GRP means they are easily lifted for access but require minimal maintenance over their long design life. The fibreglass material is also non-conductive, non-sparking and impact resistant.
We also offer a range of non-conductive GRP up-and-over steps and access structures as well as fire-rated grating and flooring.
Commonly requested bespoke fabrications for the energy sector include Machine Access, Embankment Staircases, Gantries, Stepovers and Ladders. Choosing a pre-fabricated GRP solution from Dura Composites significantly reduces the man-hours on site and can help to compress a project schedule.
