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 Cable 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 Cable 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 Cable 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.

Frequently Purchased Products

Stokbord Cable Covers are often purchased in combination with some of our other industry leading products that you may wish to consider when placing an order.

This includes Tapetile cable protection rolls- an easy to apply underground cable protection tape which is available in highly visible colours to provide a visual warning and reduce the likelihood of accidental strikes during construction projects. You can read more about this product here.

Another of our products often purchased in conjunction with plastic cable covers is Locata Warning Mesh; a high strength polypropylene net designed to be easily spotted by excavators before they reach a vital buried electric cable or gas pipe. This is also available in a choice of high visibility colours as well as giving you the option of having printed messages of your choice given sufficient order quantities being received.

A newly developed alternative to Stokbord Cable Covers recently introduced by Centriforce is our Stokbord drum product. This offers all the benefits of Stokbord cable protection tiles but comes in an easy to apply rolled format which not only reduces the time taken to apply the necessary cable protection cover, but also brings with it safety benefits by removing the necessity for workmen to enter trenches.
