Tuff Trench Pedestrian Trench Cover - New Reinforced Design

TheTuff Trench pedestrian walk board is the first trench cover to be moulded from High-Density Polyethylene, this means it won't splinter or shatter when dropped. Traditional trench covers are made from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), these are not recyclable and have a tendency to sustain damage if dropped on the corners. The Tuff Trench aims to solve this problem while allowing it to be bolted down using the 4 fixing holes provided.

Designed with utility and highway contractors in mind and manufactured in the UK.

Key Features

  • 4 Fixing holes to be bolted to the ground (see related products)
  • Fully compliant for pedestrian use
  • Can withstand up to 400kg
  • 700mm maximum trench width
  • 12.8kg Weight - a single man lift
  • Carry handles for easy transport
  • 100% recyclable.
  • Conforms to National Grid T/SP/E/42
  • Conforms to HAUC Advice Note No. 2018/01
  • Conforms to Safety at Street Works & Road Works – A Code of Practice.
  • Conforms to slip resistance of BS 7976: Part 2
Hawk Tuff Trench with Reinforcing Bars

New Reinforced Design

The new and improved Hawk Tuff Trench cover now includes 3 steel reinforcing bars. These bars keep this trench cover fully compliant with current legislation. HAUC Advice Note No.2018/01 states when A cover is loaded with 400kg of ballast the board should not deflect more than 5% of the maximum allowable trench span, in this case, a 700mm trench.

Testing of the Hawk Tuff Trench over a 700mm trench width without fixing has been carried out loading the cover with more than 800kg without ultimate failure.

New Improved Reinforced Design Testing
