Anti-Skid Road Plates

High-friction road plates available in a variety of sizes

  • Gripped surface reduces risk of slips/falls in bad conditions
  • Provides increased safety to both public and workers
  • Holding down bolts for additional security
  • Nationwide delivery


Road plates are designed to cover over trenches and other excavations whilst construction crews dig up roads or pavements, ensuring pedestrians, cyclists or vehicle traffic can safely cross without falling in, minimising risk or injury.

Forming part of our Ground Protection range, our anti-skid road plates offer high friction for an increased level of grip, improving safety on site.

Holding Down Bolts are available for fixing to the surface, to ensure there is no movement when vehicles are crossing or turning.

The bolts are simply drilled into the road surface and come in three parts: holding down bolt, steel collar and plastic cap (to protect bolt).

  • The gripped surface substantially reduces the risk of trips and falls in very wet or muddy conditions
  • Provides extra support for foot and vehicle traffic
  • Choose from a range of sizes
  • Stackable for efficient storage

We also offer our standard steel road plates as an alternative option.


Both anti-skid and our standard steel road plates require an appropriately qualified person to calculate the required size and thickness of the road plate needed. The types and size of traffic should also be carefully considered:

For pedestrians: 13mm thickness road plate
For vehicles: 20mm-25mm road plate thickness

Road plates and trench covers will need securing to the road surface to ensure they remain firmly in place whilst in use.

We recommend you minimise any change in road level by sinking them into the surface so that they sit flush or by creating a ramp. If this is not possible we encourage you to place clear warning signs to advise of any lip or ridge that could cause a hazard to drivers, cyclists or pedestrians.
