Temporary Site Access

Steel Road Plates

Steel Road Plates provide temporary vehicle access over narrow trenches, small manholes and other smaller site obstacles. This helps workers access construction areas more safely as work is carried out.

Not only do steel road plates keep your workers and site much safer, they allow personnel to carry out work more efficiently, with easy access over temporary excavations, site obstacles and other potential hazards.

Our Steel Road Plates

Our Steel Road Plates are designed to help keep construction workers safe and provide easy access across site, made with a range of handy features to ensure easy installation and reliability.

Installing our steel road plates is quick and easy, with holes cut into all four corners for simple installation by crane. This makes handling the road plates easy, allowing the plate to be chained when installing and removing - particularly ideal for installing road plates across larger excavation areas where it isn't safe to install by hand.
