Rubber crossing plates are designed to withstand heavy loads and provide a safe and stable surface for vehicles and pedestrians to cross over temporary trenches or excavations. However, these plates can be damaged in various ways, including:
Heavy loads: Excessive weight or heavy vehicles passing over the rubber crossing plate can cause it to deform or crack.
Improper installation: If the plate is not installed correctly, it may shift or move, causing it to buckle or become damaged.
Exposure to harsh elements: Extreme temperatures, prolonged exposure to sunlight, and exposure to harsh chemicals or oils can damage the rubber material and cause it to deteriorate.
Wear and tear: Over time, the constant pressure and friction of vehicles passing over the plate can cause it to wear down and become damaged.
Accidents or impacts: Accidents, collisions, or impacts from heavy equipment or vehicles can cause the rubber crossing plate to crack or become damaged.
It is important to regularly inspect rubber crossing plates for signs of damage and replace them as needed to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles crossing over temporary excavations or trenches.
