How deep should trench foundations be?

The trench depth is variable but in most cases should be at least 1m with a width of 600mm. The concrete should have a minimum depth of 225mm. Trenchfill foundations fill the excavation, almost to the top, with concrete.

Is FRP stronger than aluminum?

FRP is non-conductive and even though stronger than aluminum—it’s has enough flex to be ergonomic for foot traffic. Durability – Due to its low strength, undefined fatigue limit, and impact vulnerability—aluminum trails behind FRP in terms of durability in the workplace.

Is FRP cheaper than aluminum?

In the same situation with FRP, the entire sidewall is generally replaced. For minor damage, such as dents, tears, and scratches, FRP is usually less expensive to repair than aluminum.

How deep should cable be buried?
