Come and see our products at the Speedy Expo, stand L20

The annual Speedy Hire exhibition in Liverpool, Speedy Expo, is just around the corner on the 30th and 31st of October. At the expo, they will be showcasing industry-leading technology such as tools, equipment, lifting and materials handling equipment, temporary lighting equipment, temporary power generation and much more.

This year, Oxford Plastics will be attending the Speedy Expo, bringing along some of our innovative products. Many of our UK based products are researched and designed in collaboration with the Department of Transport and industry leaders from JAG, HAUC, NJUG & REMA. We ensure all of our products have a use for the end-user and solves many complications associated with traditional equipment.

Below are some of the products we’ll be bringing to Speedy Expo:

LowPro® 23/05 Road Plate

The 23/05 LowPro® is a modular system of singular linking units, this road plate trench cover is suitable for 44 tonnes vehicles over a 1200mm trench. No expensive machinery necessary as the 23/05 LowPro® weighs only 65kg and can be lifted and installed by two people.

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 reducing unwanted movement. Rubber edges can be replaced to extend the life of your LowPro®. Also, the anti-slide technology complies with HAUC 2018/01 Advice Note.

The anti-slip surface provides secure access, and hi-vis yellow alerts drivers to reduce their speed. The Road Plate is currently used in Highways, Street Works and Utilities sites. The innovative and patented Flexi-Edge reduces noise pollution, making the LowPro® 23/05 Road Plate also ideal for residential areas. The 23/05 LowPro® must be bolted down for carriageway use.

LowPro® 15/05 Road Plate

The 15/05 LowPro® is a modular system of singular linking units, this road plate trench cover is suitable for 44 tonnes vehicles over a 700mm trench.

At 44kgs this LowPro® is far lighter and easier to handle than a steel plate. No need for expensive specialist lifting equipment, the LowPro® 15/05 can be installed in minutes with a 2-person lift.

Similar to the LowPro® 23/05 Road Plate, it also features the anti-slip surface ensuring secure and safe access and in the high visibility yellow for clarity.

LowPro® 15/10 Safe Cover

The Award-Winning LowPro® 15/10 Trench Cover uses our patented Flexi-Edge technology and is a suitable driveway board for 3.5 tonnes vehicles over a 900mm trench.

Cadent (previously known as National Grid) commissioned Oxford Plastics to create a pedestrian & driveway board. It should be capable of supporting 1 wheel of a 3.5 tonnes vehicle and use Oxford’s patented Flexi-Edge technology. We enlisted the feedback of Utilities and contractors throughout the design process, and so the LowPro® 15/10 was born!

The LowPro® 15/10 complies with National Grid Footway Board Specification. T/SP/E/42. It does not need to be bolted into place, reducing installation time.

This LowPro® is a lightweight and easy-to-handle alternative to the steel plate. This trench cover is installed in seconds with an easy 2 person lift, with no need for specialist lifting equipment.
