Fibrelite Partners with US Pre-Cast Trench Manufacturer to Launch New Lightweight Composite Covers for Trench Systems

Fibrelite has partnered with Trenwa to present a new line of HS-20 load rated concrete trench systems, incorporating Fibrelite’s lightweight composite covers at IEEE this May in Dallas, US.

Fibrelite explains that its trench covers are extremely durable yet lightweight and will withstand traffic and harsh field conditions for many years, as well as being non-conductive and chemically resistant.

Jim Goodman, Fibrelite’s Director of Sales for North America said, “We believe that Trenwa is a perfect partner in the US for Fibrelite’s composite trench covers. We are excited to release a new line, designed specifically for Trenwa’s pre-cast concrete road crossing trench (available in both HS- 20 and HS-25 load ratings). When combined with Trenwa’s concrete road bases, they create an ergonomic yet affordable system for drive-over areas. They are available for all of Trenwa’s road crossing trench products from 10" wide to 48" wide.”

George Schurr, Trenwa’s President said, “We are very pleased to be working with Fibrelite as the quality of their composite trench covers is far better than any other comparable products that we have seen in the past. We believe that our customers requiring road crossing trenches, will be impressed with the durability and performance of the Fibrelite HS-20 load rated trench covers.”

Fiberlite adds that this is a great example of where its composite covers can be incorporated. Trenwa required a particular size of cover to fit their pre-cast concrete trenches, with a load rating to support traffic, and also wanted custom branding. Its technical department was able to provide a bespoke solution and manufacture using their flexible tooling.
