Detailed Description

A Cost-Effective Solution for Plastic Cable Cover Protection

This industry leading plastic cable cover offers a variety of benefits not available with traditional concrete underground utility and cable protection solutions.

One of the most obvious benefits are the cost saving, with Stokbord® Covers helping to reduce both transportation and handling costs in comparison to concrete underground cable protection solutions. It is also far more visible when applied thanks to the bright colours that our plastic cable covers are available in.

Stokbord® Cover comes in the form of our individual cable protection tiles which are designed to be easy to install for operators. This not only reduces the time required to apply the necessary levels of underground cable protection cover at the start of each project but also improves safety levels by reducing the time spent by workers in potentially hazardous trenches on-site.

These benefits are available without compromising on strength, with Stokbord® Cover undergoing significant impact testing to prove its practicality. Centriforce manufactures variations to conform to specifications laid out by the UK Distribution Network Operators (DNO’s) and the National Grid. You can read more information about the specifications and testing which this ground breaking plastic cable protection cover solution has undergone in the More Information tab below.
