Steel Plate Alternatives Vs Civil Safety Products LowPro Trench Covers & Safegate Barrier

Read Updates from Trenchless Australasia – We’re on top of Trench Cover Safety with the Australian Pipeline & Gas Association Magazine.

Civil Safety Products is proud to be an APGA Member, and present regular information to this association throughout the year.

Australian Civil Safety Solutions and Equipment are our forte, and our latest published article features comparative data to help our readers understand the benefits of using our LowPro Temporary Trench Covers, rather than the heavy and cumbersome Steel Plate alternatives that some industries still use. 

Why are our safety pot hole, ditch, trip hazard and driveway boards so popular?  Because they’re lightweight, easy to deploy without heavy lifting equipment and machinery, and they are easy to see… 

 Here’s a snippet of what our Trenchless article covers:

‘The comparable data (1) of our three CSP LowPro Trench sizes shows the difference.  The 1,125 mm by 1,125 mm LowPro 11/11 weighs just 26 kg and has a load capacity of 500 kg;  a 20 mm steel plate of the same size weighs in at 200 kg.  The 1,200 mm by 800 mm LowPro 12/8 weighs 17 kg with load capacity of 2 Tonne distributed weight, compared with the 151 kg steel plate equivalent, and the 42 kg 1,500 mm by 1,000 mm LowPro with the load capacity to support one wheel of a vehicle up to 3.5 Tonne or 400 kg pedestrian weight, compared with the 236 kg steel plate equivalent.
“Our most popular trench cover is the LowPro 12/8,” says Mr Neil Cuthbert from Civil Safety Products.  “Its innovative flexi-edge allows safe installation and protection over trip hazards, pedestrian walkway concrete damage areas, and small pits.  It’s no slouch in area capacity either, as it is specifically designed to cover a 700 mm trench.  The LowPro 15/10 will safely span a hole measuring up to 900 mm by 1,200 mm – and they’re shock resistant.”
Temporary trench covers also vary in durability, so Civil Safety Products says there is wisdom in being wary of cheap alternatives. Oxford Plastic products are gaining in popularity, proven to be reliable, sturdy and practical, and doing well when Work Health and Safety compliance is concerned.’

LowPro Trench Covers for Temporary Safety – Lightweight, Quality from Civil Safety Products in Victoria

Civil Safety Products continue to lead the way in Australian Civil Safety Solutions and Equipment.  Our LowPro Covers come in three different sizes, they’re entirely reusable, and can be stacked, stored and transported by no more than two people and a ute!

       

Our high visibility safety Trench Covers are solid, with a glass-reinforced high quality composition, and the LowPro 12/8 and 15/10 have replaceable and flexible edges for a firmer fit.  At a weight of no more than 42kg (for the larger version), you can choose from the three available models, and feel assured that the UK designed and manufactured products come with compliance to AS3996 and the WHS Act (2012).

Traffic management and worksite safety situations demand robust equipment that will withstand inopportune movement and carry the specified weight.  The beauty of the LowPro range is that they provide stability, without bolting, and you’ll find the LowPro 12/8 and LowPro 15/10 have been designed with in-built gas vents and probe holes as well.  With a load rating of 3.5 Tonne, the LowPro 15/10 is tough enough to withstand considerable weight too.

Our Civil Safety Products customers are finding their versatility suitable for a wide range of situations, for example:
• Retail Stores, Supermarkets and Cleaning companies use them to address temporary holes in floors and damaged tile or pavement areas
• Civil and Construction site workers position them to cover safety hazard holes, small pits and various other no-go zones – such as Mining, Telcoms, Gas, Water and Electrical companies might encounter
• Residential Home Builders use them for temporary driveway access where a crossover may have been removed, damaged, or is yet to be constructed
• Commercial Builders may use them to cover areas where concrete cutting has occurred, and prior to replacement pouring
• Schools can protect all in-house and visiting persons from dangerous trip and fall spots, and
• Shire Council workers put them in place to ensure any ground works in-progress have a bright yellow, flat safety cover that unmistakably says ‘beware’ – keeping pedestrians and workers safe.
