MGF Extend TrenchSafe Product Range

MGF are pleased to announce the extension of our TrenchSafe product range. MGF Ground Guards and MGF GRP Ladders have been added to the range and are now available for hire and sale.

The TrenchSafe product range is one of MGF’s most recently launched customer focused safety solutions. The range is aimed at supporting the safe completion of temporary utilities works for both planned and reactive maintenance projects. The TrenchSafe range includes our entire GRiPSHORE™ lightweight shoring range as well as our Walksafe and Crossingsafe access solutions.

MGF Ground Guards are a flexible ground protection system that can be placed manually to create a temporary road, car park or footpath. The Ground Guards are environmentally friendly as they are produced from 100% recycled plastic polyethylene and they are a durable alternative to traditional plywood sheets. The Ground Guards are rapid to lay and can be easily re-located, they are lightweight, 12.7mm thick and have roadway and walkway tread.

Regional Director, Kevin Clarke, commented

“The TrenchSafe product range has been developed with our customers’ needs and safety requirements in mind. The objective behind the range is to provide complete access solutions for trenches and excavations and with the addition of the GRP Ladders and Ground Guards to TrenchSafe I believe we are attaining our goal. With the GRiPSHORE™ lightweight shoring, our Crossingsafe and Walksafe access solutions and these latest additions we now have a broad and solid TrenchSafe range that can provide safe and fast access for operatives entering excavations during maintenance works”.
