The Customer:
Local authority

The Requirement:
Utility works taking place in a residential area meant that pavement was being dug up to expose the cables underground.

The area in question could not be fully closed off to the public, and so a safe, strong, highly visible guard was needed to cover the trench and protect pedestrians from unwanted accidents.

The Solution:
With health and safety the primary concern, Ground-Guards recommended TrenchGuards as safe street cover for both pedestrian and vehicles.

Featuring a robust steel reinforced honeycomb structure, TrenchGuards are made from an ultra strong shatter and splinter-proof plastic.

The interlocking system clips together easily and has four bolting points to prevent it from shifting.

Each guard weighs only 18kg and yet can support loads of 500kg per wheel over a 600mm wide trench.

TrenchGuards are available in hi-vis yellow with reflective strips and an anti-slip tread pattern.

The Outcome:

The contractor was delighted with the safety, strength and efficiency of the TrenchGuard system, completing their utility works with minimum disruption to the local residents.
