Introducing Armadillo – an innovative range of products from Wrekin that benefit contractors and housebuilders.

The Armadillo range of protector shells is designed to be placed over manhole covers and gully grates, providing temporary protection from group five traffic during the construction phase of a project. This ensures manhole covers and gully grates start their service life in ‘as new' condition to optimise longevity.

"The premature need for replacement or reinstallation of manhole covers and gully grates is an issue we’ve recognised as having a massive impact on the industry due to the disruption and additional costs it causes. The Armadillo range provides a new approach - contractors will no longer need to replace damaged manhole covers or gully grates at the end of construction, saving time and money, and are sustainable because they can be re-used.” Gosia Kwapisz, Product Manager, Wrekin. 

Graeme Arnott, Branch Manager at PDM East Kilbride stated “This innovative system tackles a common problem faced by our customers when it comes to damaged manhole covers and gully grates. Wrekin’s Armadillo products remove the need to replace damaged covers and allow customers to benefit from increased efficiency and reduced costs.” 

Available across all ten PDM branches throughout Scotland. Contact your nearest branch for details.

The Armadillo manhole cover protector shell is also compatible with ClickLift, which raises Highway and TriStar frames to suit the final surface layer without the need for digging out and re-installing.
