The LowPro 23/05 Road Plate system is a made up of linking plates, it suitable for 97,000lbs vehicles over a 36” trench (depending on the local DOT requirements). This is the heavy-duty road plate, for smaller trenches see the LowPro 15/05 Road Plate.
Each section weighs 145lbs, far lighter than a steel plate, and is easier to manoeuvre with the EasiLift handles. Using a team of 2 workers, rather than expensive heavy lifting equipment, the Road Plate can be carried and installed in minutes.
Underneath the LowPro are 2 sets of lateral locks: these locks drop into place when the Road Plate is installed on the trench. The locks sit within the trench on either side to prevent lateral movement.
The anti-slide technology, on the underside and edges of the Road Plate, is made from a soft, flexible, rubber material which grips the surface to reduce unwanted movement.
The Road Plate is currently used in residential areas, on roadways and utility sites partially because of its noise dampening edges. The patented Flexi-Edge reduces noise by absorbing sound; the rubber-edges are far softer than steel thus eliminating that harsh, loud clang when traffic drives over the top.
Reduce install time again when using the road plate: with its pinholes, drop pins, and FlexiEdges there is no longer a need for a cold patch.
The 23/05 has a bespoke stillage to make handling, transportation and storage simpler.
