Features of LowPro 15/05 road plates

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 this crossing 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 LowPro 15/05 road plate can be carried and installed in minutes.

Anti-slide: Lateral Locks Drop Pins

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

Anti-slide: LowPro-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

This road plate is currently used in residential areas, on roadways and utility sites partially because of its noise dampening edges. The patented LowPro Edge reduces noise by absorbing sound; making the rubber-edges far softer than steel. This then thus eliminates that harsh, loud clang when traffic drives over the top.

No Cold Patch

The lack of cold patch of this crossing plate can reduce install time again: with specific pinholes, drop pins, and LowPro 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 road plate surface provides secure access, and hi-vis yellow alerts drivers to reduce their speed.
