Product description

The Safetycross trench cover is designed for covering holes or trenches which have been created during maintenance, construction or repair work. The trench covers are suitable for pedestrian and light vehicular access.

The surface of the Safetycross trench cover is specifically designed to offer a strong grip and to be non-slip, even when wet. The trench covers are available in various sizes from 0.5m to 1.1m trench span and each size has a different load capacity ranging from 350kg to 700kg. Simply make a choice based on what suits your work site best.

The safetycross trench covers are made from SMC glass reinforced plastic, a strong and durable material which holds zero scrap value and helps prevents on-site theft problems.

Installation of these trench covers is quick and simple by using fixing pins which are ideal for bitumen surfaces or butyl adhesives developed for stone or concrete surfaces.

This trench cover also features a 3mm non-trip leading edge, another feature which helps give you peace of mind that you are offering pedestrians a safe way to cross holes and apertures. The safetycross trench covers comply with the European legislation and are a cost effective solution to site safety and access.
