Plate Locks are the Ultimate Cold Mix Alternative and a Revolution In Securing Steel Road Plates.
They are the solution to the problem you never knew you had.
Plate Locks, an American manufactured product, are a direct replacement to using cold patch asphalt or flush mounting the plate. It is intended to reduce costs, work zone accidents, injuries and contractor liabilities by consistently marking, identifying and securing road construction plates. Plate Locks are placed around the perimeter of the road plate and mechanically fastened to the roadway with concrete anchors.
This innovative product makes cold patch trench plate securing a thing of the past and reduces your liability while increasing public safety. Never have another sleepless night wondering if your trench plates have shifted, or walked again. No more phone calls from the city, county or police during the wee hours of the morning telling you to come fix a trench plate that has moved and is posing a risk.
Plate Locks can be left in place when steel road plates are removed to allow work to be done in the trench or for inspections. When the work or inspection is done simply replace the steel plate. There is no need to reinstall the Plate Locks. Compare that to needing to replace cold patch every time the road plate is moved and you quickly see you have a winning alternative to traditional methods of securing trench plates.
Plate Locks increase safety for employees, motorists and cyclists while reducing liability. They are safety orange and can be clearly seen by motorists and bicyclists, easily alerting them to the steel road plate in their driving lane thus eliminating accidents. This has been said so many times…
Plate Locks pay for themselves the first time they’re used and will save you a lot of money in labor costs because they can be installed or removed in a fraction of the time it takes a crew to throw down or remove cold patch. And the best news is you can use them over and over again!
