JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
Designed to be a “fit-and-forget” product, they are maintenance-free, lightweight, durable and very strong as a matter of course.
David Holmes, Technical Director at Fibrelite, explained: “Cloud storage facilities require miles and miles of fibre-optic cabling which is installed in protective but readily-accessible concrete trenches so that impaired sections can be swiftly replaced – or more cables added, as storage companies are incorporating extension plans into their new-builds.
“Then, in order to maintain optimum hardware performance, each server room requires additional electrical power and battery backup systems to operate vital environmental and mechanical controls such as continuous cooling, fire and security alarms. These too require their own cabling in their own identifiable, readily-accessible trench.
So taking all this into account, it’s no surprise that designers are specifying from the outset lightweight composite trench covers which can be quickly and easily removed by hand.”
Fibrelite composite trench covers are available in a range of sizes and load ratings. Designed to be a “fit-and-forget” product, they are maintenance-free, lightweight, durable and very strong as a matter of course. Custom-made solutions are available on request and covers can also be moulded in virtually any colour or colour-combination to incorporate logos; branding or even to identify the specific service that can be accessed via a particular cover.
