Dura Composites and Anderton Concrete are jointly offering concrete troughs and pultruded glass reinforced plastic (GRP) lids that have been designed together, specifically to work in conjunction with each together.

Ibstock subsidiary Anderton Concrete supplies structural precast concrete products supplies the rail industry and is now targeting the power and energy infrastructure sector with its pre-cast reinforced concrete troughs. By teaming up with Dura Composites, it can offer lightweight and non-conductive GRP trough lids, including moulded open mesh Dura Grating for pedestrian loadings and solid pultruded Dura Slab lids for vehicle traffic.

The two companies have worked together on projects in the past, including a mile of concrete troughs with GRP lids installed as part of the Crossrail project.
