Each section weighs 145lbs, far lighter than a steel plate, and is easier to maneuver 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 Road Plate 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 Road Plate also has provisions for additional securing with anchor bolts.
In addition to the Anti-slide technology on the underside, the edges of the Road Plate are made of 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 when using the road plate: with its FlexiEdges there is no longer a need for a cold patch.
The LowPro 23/05 has a bespoke stillage to make handling, transportation and storage simpler.
