LowPro 15/05 HS20-44 Road Plate

The alternative to steel road plate trench covers

Installed with 2 crew members

The LowPro 15/05 Road Plate is a modular system of linking units, suitable for use over an 18” wide trench (depending on the local DOT requirements). Each section weighs 97lbs, making the LowPro 15/05 Road Plate far lighter and easier to handle than a steel trench plate. Using a team of 2 workers, rather than expensive heavy lifting equipment, the Road Plate can be carried and installed in minutes.

Anti-slide: Lateral Locks Drop Pins

Underneath the composite Road Plate are 2 sets of lateral locks: these locks drop into place when the Road Plate is installed over a trench. The locks sit within the trench on either side to prevent lateral movement.

Anti-slide: Flexi-Edges

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.

No noise pollution: Flexi-Edges

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.

No Cold Patch

Reduce install time again when using the road plate: with its pinholes, drop pins, and Flexi-Edges there is no longer a need for cold patch. Rubber edges can also be replaced to extend the life of your LowPro 15/05 Road Plate.

Anti-Skid Surface

The anti-skid surface provides secure access, and hi-vis yellow alerts drivers to reduce their speed.
