Plate-Guard is a major innovation for the protection of all buried pipeline assets – for oil and gas lines, high-voltage electricity grids, telephone and fiber optic cables or water and sewage networks. Plate-Guard is the optimal solution for the safety and protection of these underground assets.
More than 50% of third party damage to a pipeline is done accidentally by the excavator bucket of a mechanical digger. Tests show that the polyethylene plate cover resists the impact of a mechanical digger and prevents damage to the pipeline.
Plate-Guard covers connect together securely and can navigate bends and accommodate elevation differences.
a. Male Connection Point
b. Female Connection Point
c. Drainage holes
The plate has 3mm diameter drainage holes over the surface to prevent the build-up of water.
d. Customer Information Indentations
Each plate cover has two indentations 100mm x 100mm (4″x4″) designed for a customized, adhesive sticker. The sticker is a hazard warning and can contain the asset owner’s information, web site and emergency telephone number.
e. Peg Holes
The plates overlap and a short peg is inserted into the peg hole. This allows plate rotation and keeps the line of plates continuous without gaps.
Plate-Guard has many applications, plate covers are supplied in three dimensions. The plates can be used in either direction, length ways or width ways.
Dimensions in both millimetres and inches.
The standard color of Plate-Guard is black. Other colors can be supplied upon request.
Plate-Guard has been designed to fit the dimensions of a standard pallet which means optimal logistics to site.
