Trench cover designed for Project Gigabit
Oxford Plastics has launched a trench cover to aid the installation of fibre optics and telecommunications throughout the UK.
The LowPro 100 Narrow Trench Cover coincides with the government’s launch of the £5bn ‘Project Gigabit’ which aims to reach more than one million hard to reach homes and businesses, supplying them with the next generation of gigabit broadband from the first half of 2022.
The product, which has taken eight months to develop by the Oxford Plastics team, has been designed to be one of the safest available on the market for pedestrians as pathways and roads are fitted with the state of the art fibre optic technology, throughout the UK. It is also made from recycled plastic, and is fully recyclable.
The LowPro 100 is designed for fibre optic cable installations and maintenance, while also being able to bend around corners, be of high visibility, and anti-slip.
Two depth options are available, 20mm and 40mm and the 1m interlinking sections cover 75mm-100mm wide trenches, making it more cost effective than other trench covers currently on the market.
