Stokbord® Drum

Our Stokbord® Drum product has proven to be an innovation in mechanical underground utility protection.

Not only does it improve the speed at which underground protection for cables and pipelines can be applied, but Stokbord Drum also supports the improvement of safety levels for manual workers by removing the need for them to enter trenches on construction sites.

Stokbord® Drum offers the same trusted damage prevention as the globally recognised Centriforce Stokbord® Cover product which has a proven reputation for providing heavy-duty protection for cables and pipelines.

However, the major difference is that Stokbord® Drum promises to provide the same levels of utility protection but comes in a handy and innovative rolled format which can be unrolled directly into a trench where it does not require any individual connection pegs.
