TPA Product Profile TRENCHLINK TPA’s TrenchLink is an integrated, permanent skid resistant surface and cannot move out of position once they have been placed over an open trench. Further TrenchLink details can be found at; www.tpa-roadways.com
TPA’s TrenchLink is a system of interlocking, ductile iron mini road plates which can be easily handled by operatives on site in order to secure a trench for the immediate passage of vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
They have an integrated, permanent anti-skid surface and cannot move out of position once they have been placed over an open trench. They require no anchoring while the crew is on site and can be quickly removed for permanent re-instatement. The TrenchLink plates are not simply small road plates. They are a system that allows the contractor to conduct road openings in a radically different way from current industry practices. The main benefits which are gained from the use of the system are as follows: Benefits & Features:
• Increased productivity by removing the need for temporary reinstatement.
• If temporary tar is avoided, there is no environmental wastage and • • • •
minimum transport of materials. Traffic can flow immediately and in safety. A benefit for the contractor who is working within the restricted hours which are enforced by many local authorities, and a benefit for the motorist. In road crossings, service connections can be kept to entry and exit points most important for gas and water. Facilitates the use of foam concrete, thus reducing potential for subsidence. No emergency call-outs caused by movement, as is the case with steel sheets.
