Trench Covers Guide – Download for FREE

Which Trench Covers do I need?

At Civil Safety Products in Australia, we take our commitment to keeping construction sites safe very seriously.  Trench Covers are essential for maintaining accessibility to particular areas whilst you work – so it’s important to get it right, and ensure that you source the appropriate safety products for your company’s needs.
On a construction site your trench and safety cover usage will obviously vary according to the site, and, where Trench Covers are concerned, there are certain fulfilment requirements that need careful consideration before placing your order with us at CSP.  These important factors may include:

What size trench are you covering?

An obvious one, perhaps – but it’s wise to make sure that the Civil Safety Products Trench Covers you buy are large enough to safely cover the hole or holes.  Our LowPro® Trench Cover range includes options suitable for between 200mm to 1200mm wide trenches (depending on your needs).

 

Calculate the appropriate weight bearing allowance for your Trench Covers

Does your Trench Cover need to support heavy vehicles, general road traffic, or just passing pedestrians?  We offer several solutions.
Read the specifications of each of our CSP Trench Covers (below) to select those that can support either 3.5 tonne vehicles, 2 tonne vehicles, and/or motor scooters of up to 350kg.

Composite Trench Covers Vs Steel Plates – Our Composite Products Win Hands-down

All of the Trench Covers in our LowPro® range are composite and formed using environmentally friendly practises – which means they’re lightweight, easy to manoeuvre and lay into position.  CSP’s Trench Covers are designed and manufactured with construction workers in mind, so they all weigh between 13 and 33kg – without compromising on strength.  They can therefore be positioned quickly by just two people, and without the need for specialist lifting equipment – making setting up or clearing a construction site easier, more cost-effective and time-efficient for your team.

Health & Safety are CSP Priorities at every stage

Our Trench Covers, designed and manufactured in the UK by Oxford Plastics, come with a range of high-quality features, such as anti-slip and anti-trip technology.  Naturally the anti-slip features ensure that the boards remain firmly in place.

They’re also compliant with Australian Standards 3996 and 1428.

Reduce Your Risk With Civil Safety Products

There is no compromise on quality at Civil Safety Products, and that’s why we’ve established an Australia-wide reputation for stocking and distributing the most sought-after, premium products that outsell and undeniably outlast cheap imports.

Weigh up the benefits in our table below

To help summarise the above, we’ve created a handy infographic to help you quickly identify which of our CSP Trench Covers are best-fit solutions for you.

Composite Road Plates from Civil Safety Products – Whisper Quiet, Reusable and Affordable Quality

The new Composite Trench Cover and Composite Road Plate products, designed and manufactured by Oxford Plastics in the UK, are a quiet alternative to the loud, clanging steel plates that are commonly used on civil construction worksites and roadways.

Noise pollution is a pertinent issue for construction, public works and utility companies in cities throughout Australia.  Because of this, disruptive works are often limited to day-time hours – but the annoying metal clanging noises don’t stop at the end of the day.  Steel plates, used on worksites to cover trenches and hazardous areas, spread discontentment and cause complaints amongst residents and local governments as they’re loud both day and night – whenever vehicles drive over them.

Now contractors can say goodbye to the clang of steel plates by using Civil Safety Products’ composite LowPro Road Plate.  The Civil Safety Products Plate has none of these problems as it is virtually silent through all processes – from installation, during worksite placement, and through to being dismantled.

In addition to lowering noise pollution, our Composite Road Plates provide a cheaper alternative to steel plates as they require no heavy lifting equipment, no expensive and time-consuming transportation, no extended traffic management hours, and no asphalt cold mix.  They’re also easily stored in a stillage and they pose far fewer safety risks to operators.

Civil Safety Products’ Road Plate is made from several modules – or inner sections – that clip together and adapt to the bumps and angles of the road.  The innovative drop pins in this advanced product sink into the trench to prevent lateral movement caused by overhead traffic.  In simple terms, once the composite Road Plate is properly installed it will not bounce or move out of place.

Steel plates, as they are made from one flat sheet, do not adapt to cambers in the road.  Subsequently, they are prone to rock and bang against the asphalt.  The steel can even rock from side to side if it is not adequately installed, exposing the trench underneath.

Avoid loud steel plates entirely by using the Composite Road Plate.

 

So what are the benefits?

  • The Civil Safety Products Road Plate is shaped like a large speed bump and comes with ramped rubber edges.  This allows vehicles to smoothly and silently drive over the cover as the rubber edges absorb noise and vibrations.  Road works and street works contractors who frequently receive noise complaints can therefore continue working without this problem.
  • The Civil Safety Products Road Plate covers 1200mm wide trenches and takes the weight of a 44 tonne vehicle, meaning that it can be used in residential or commercial high traffic areas.
  • The natural slope of the composite plate and high-vis yellow design looks and acts like a speed bump to slow traffic down
  • Worksites remain safer and quieter, and residents can sleep again at night
  • This modular LowPro Road Plate solution can be clipped together until the desired width is achieved to cover the trench
  • The Civil Safety Products Road Plate is also part of the composite trench cover range, this includes options for 200mm to 1200mm
  • All products in the range are manufactured to Australian Standards in the UK by Oxford Plastic Systems

Reduce your risk and your worksite costs also with these added benefits:

  •  No heavy lifting equipment is required – easy two person lift and installation process, and safer to manoeuvre (particularly in comparison to steel plates)
  •  Traffic management issues are reduced significantly
  •  No asphalt cold mixing to the edges, and they’re
  •  Easy to transport and store – 15 metres of plates can be carried on one ute and plates may be stacked for storage.

Please Note:  Our Civil Safety Products Road Plates are also approved for use by Road Authority bodies throughout Australia – including VicRoads (Victoria), Roads and Maritime Services (NSW), Transport and Main Roads (QLD), Main Roads (WA), and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI – South Australia).

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, 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.  Feel assured that our 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 versatile and 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 concrete pouring
• Schools can protect all in-house and visiting persons from dangerous trip and fall spots, and
• Shire Council workers place them to ensure any ground works in-progress have a bright yellow, flat safety cover that unmistakably says ‘beware’ – keeping pedestrians and workers safe.

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.’

SAFEGATE BARRIER – LIGHTWEIGHT SAFETY BARRIER, MANHOLE REPAIR BARRIER, CABLE LAYING HOLE BARRIER & TEMPORARY EXCAVATION AREA BARRIER

Civil Safety Products in Victoria stocks modular, easy-lift Safegate Barrier Systems, as Australia’s Leading Distributor of Oxford Plastic Systems.

Our high visibility safety barriers are hinged with four separate sides, that can be reconfigured to be a three-sided safety measure, or a straight line protection border as well.  At a weight of only 2kg per individual barrier (10kg per full unit), they’re perfect for quick safety solution situations across multiple industries.

For example:
• Retail Stores, Supermarkets and Cleaning companies use them to address temporary wet areas, or food spills
• Civil and Construction sites deploy them for safety hazard holes, small pits and various other no-go zones – such as Mining, Telcoms, Gas, Water and Electrical companies might encounter
• Event Management companies roll them out where temporary restriction of pedestrian access is required
• Warehouse Distribution Centres and Logistics companies block warehouse aisles where pallets may be temporarily stacked above recommended levels, and where forklifts and personnel need to either proceed with caution, or stay away for WHS safety reasons
• Schools can protect and screen students from danger zones and trip and fall spots, and
• Shire Council workers put them in place to ensure any works in progress have a bright safety barrier that unmistakably says ‘beware’.

CALL US at Civil Safety Products for Safegate Barriers that provide simple, quick and effective safety solutions

The beauty of our modular barrier is that it can be configured in a straight, open-sided, square, rectangular or triangular line.  Whilst a single unit purchase is useful, there is much to be gained from purchasing several safety barrier barriers as a collective, as each individual ‘safegate’ system has double-sided hinge mechanisms that quickly clip together.  They also have integral locking clamps to aid stability particularly for straight sections. 
The Safegate Barrier folds flat-pack style for simple transportation in a station wagon, SUV, ute or similar, and can be stacked for storage as well, to minimise storage space requirements.

Designed and Patented in the UK, the Safegate System is made from HDPE and is 100% Recyclable.

“These barriers are not meant for permanent placement in a safety situation, but they are a fantastic solution when an immediate barrier needs to put in place.   Australian supermarkets have particularly taken to them after having been sued countless times by shoppers who have slipped and fallen in-store.  Where a bright yellow cone has usually been deployed in the past, our barriers can be moved into place, around the entire slip zone in no time, so that the relevant personnel can have a little extra time to get to the safety issue and fix it properly.  The barriers don’t pose a risk of injury, nor will they be unduly harmed if accidently knocked by trolleys, small children, or those who are visually or otherwise physically impaired.  Their flexibility to cover various areas means that large and small spills will be highly visible and protected as a safety hazard zone.”  Civil Safety Products, Australia

Worksite areas need protecting.  The picture at right was a site left by Civil personnel over a lunch break.  The ineffective mess that it was left in is an obvious OHS/WHS hazard.  A Safegate Barrier system could have been quickly and easily deployed, making for safety and high visibility in the interim.
