1Our 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 supports the improvement of safety levels for manual workers by removing the need for them to enter trenches on construction sites.
Stokbord® Drum is essentially the same product as the globally recognised Centriforce Stokbord® Cable 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.
Where is Stokbord® Drum Used?
Stokbord® Drum is ideal for major infrastructure projects as it helps to prevent impact damage to varying utility services including HV, MW and LV electricity cables, in addition to buried gas and water pipes.
It has been used by key contractors for projects including Triton Knoll where it has significantly improved the speed at which the all-important underground protection for cables and pipes can be applied whilst also reducing the risk to workers on-site.
As with the Centriforce Stokbord® Cover, Stokbord® Drum is manufactured to internationally recognised standards and DNO specifications including ENATS 12-23 Class 1 & 2 as well as National Grid TS 3.05.07. Through our drive for innovation and long-standing relationships with utility organisations, Centriforce supports customers with a range of infrastructure projects and compliance requirements.
