Cable Trench Cover

Cable Trench Cover

The Beltflex® cable trench protection system is a proven engineering solution, designed to solve the issues of covering and maintaining the performance of crane cable. The belt’s unique formula provides high durability in the most arduous of environments. As experts in the field of crane rail systems, our engineers are able to offer a variety of designs to suit specific project requirements.

The Beltflex® system’s main purpose is to protect the cable and cable trench against damage from traffic, by covering the channel with a rubber belt. The design of the belt is composed of multiple layers with a resilient rubber surface and two layers of reinforcing steel cord. The  system helps prolong the life of the cable, reduces waste accumulation and minimises trip hazards.

Our teams are able to provide a complete turnkey solution, from design and supply through to installation and technical support.

Beltflex® & Beltflex Xtra®

There are two models of Beltflex® to suit a variety of applications.


This standard belt system is used where the cable trench is not expected to see heavy traffic crossing; typically situated between the quay wall edge and quay wall rail

Beltflex Xtra®

This is a specialist belt system with additional steel reinforcement running through the belt, designed to support continuous heavy traffic. This is ideal for trenches that may expect to see trucks, container lifts (TMG) or maintenance vehicles crossing the system.

Beltflex® and Beltflex Xtra® are typically supplied in 50m lengths.

They are joined by either a stainless steel Beltflex® riveted joining plate or they can be vulcanised on site upon request.
