Recently Civil Safety Products, Australia’s Leading Distributor for Oxford Plastic Systems,

was featured in an article for Trenchless Australasia (June 2017).

It focuses on one of our products


Here’s what we had to say:

Safety First

Civil Safety Products specialises in innovative safety products and is a distributor of the Oxford Plastics’ Road Plate 15/05, which is the perfect solution to covering dangerous areas of exposed ground on jobsites.

A: Weighing only 42 kg, each Road Plate 15/05 can be easily lifted by two people.

Oxford Plastics’ Road Plate 15/05, available in Australia and New Zealand through Civil Safety Products, in Victoria, is a lightweight and long-lasting alternative to steel plates, or backfilling and re-digging.  Designed and manufactured in the UK, it is a modular system that features individual units that can be linked together to an unlimited length.

The Road Plate 15/05 only weighs 42 kg a piece, so it can be installed with a two-person lift, removing the need for expensive and specialist lifting equipment.  This complies with National, best working practices, and also saves time and money – allowing jobs to be finished on-time and on-budget.

The Road Plate’s anti-slip surface provides secure pedestrian access, and the innovative flexible edge dampens any unwanted sounds.  It also moulds to the camber of the road.  The plate is ideal in residential areas as it makes little noise compared to steel plates; however, it must be bolted for carriageway use at each end.

The Road Plate 15/05 has the ability to cover openings of up to 700 mm wide, and handle weights up to 44 tonne, making it ideal for use in the Utility, Civil and Construction work sectors.  The Road Plate has been approved for use across Australia and New Zealand.  Local Government and Local Councils have also found the Civil Safety Products distributed Road Plate 15/05 to be an asset worth having, with the product already successfully in use on various maintenance jobs across both countries.

Oxford Plastics’ Road Plate 15/05 is widely distributed by Civil Safety Products (an Australian company, owned and operated by Civil, Construction and Commercial Builders with three generations of exemplary construction experience).  With their extensive knowledge and experience, CSP provides intelligent products that improve safety, reduce inefficiency, and control costs in Civil Construction, Telecommunications, Road Works and Local Government projects.

Civil Safety Products was established in 2014, and to this day, their mandate is to provide reliable products that meet increasing safety demands on worksites, enhance the capabilities of disability access (via the likes of wheelchair ramps), and produce advanced performance outcomes.

B: The Road Plate 15/05 can withstand weight of up to 44 tonne over a 700 mm wide opening.
