Trenwa and OPW Develop New Fibrelite Trench System

Fibrelite Trench System from Trenwa and OPW is ideal for data centre cable management, combining advanced FRP composite technology with a modular design

A new innovative trench system made from advanced composite materials could provide data centres with a superior solution for routing and protecting critical power and data cabling.

The Fibrelite Trench System from Trenwa, developed together with OPW, combines lightweight fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) composite construction with a proprietary trench beam design capable of supporting heavy HS20 road crossing loads up to 32,000 lbs per axle. The modular system is also designed to work seamlessly with the Fibrelite LHF HS20 load-rated lids, which offer superior strength and durability.

For data centres, this exceptional strength means the trenches can be installed across facility entrances, under raised flooring, or in any other areas needing to withstand concentrated heavy loads from equipment or vehicles. Yet the FRP composite material makes the trench components up to 80% lighter than concrete, greatly reducing installation costs and the risk of injuries.

“Our Fibrelite Trench system represents a significant leap in trench system technology,” said George Schurr, CEO at Trenwa. “By combining our expertise in cable trench systems with OPW’s revolutionary Fibrelite technology, we have created a solution that offers unmatched strength, safety, and versatility. We are confident that this product will transform the way industries approach trench system design and installation.”

The Fibrelite Road Crossing Trench System offers significant benefits, including easy installation without the need for cranes or lifting equipment, shiplapped ends for effortless alignment, and walls that do not flex or require bracing during installation and backfilling.
