Centriforce Benefits

Centriforce Stokbord and Tapetile heavy duty plastic underground cable covers have virtually replaced concrete cable covers, tiles and plates for several reasons:

  • Clearest warning of underground buried cables to third parties
  • Can be custom made with sizes to suit specific utility cable protection for 11kV, 33kV, 66kV and 132kV
  • Contains bold warning text and UK DNO logo for clear cable identification
  • Damage to medium and high voltage cables less likely therefore reducing the cost of repairs, jointing and outages
  • Lightweight and easy to install cable covers irrespective of weather and soil conditions
  • Durable with good impact resistance
  • Rotproof and resistant cable covers to wide range of soil conditions

Electrical Explosion – An 11kV Cable Strike

Two construction companies have been fined £90,000 after workers were seriously burned, and one scarred for life, after they cut into a live 11kV electrical cable. Unprotected underground cables distributing medium and high voltage electricity pose serious health and safety dangers.
