Foreign Material Exclusion (FME) Maintenance Covers

Lancastle offers a range of FME maintenance covers in high performance fabrics. 

Initially designed for use in nuclear power stations, their features and high specification make them equally applicable in other Foreign Material Exclusion situations.  All of our FME products are manufactured with full batch traceability to meet the high safety standards within the nuclear and similar industries. 

Our covers feature:

  • Hardwearing coated materials, durable in use and capable of withstanding industrial washing without loosing flame retardant and anti-static properties
  • Elastic for ease of fitting
  • Clear, non peel marking for size and use
  • Competitive cost

The current FME range consists of:

Flange covers - to cover the ends of pipe work split during maintenance. Standard sizes fit flange diameters of 3cm, 5cm, 10cm, 15cm, 20cm, 30cm, 40cm, 50cm, 60cm & 90cm.

Tarpaulins - specialist flame retardant and anti-static covers for larger components.  The tarpaulins feature tie down loops rather than eyelets to avoid the problem of eyelets falling out and becoming foreign material in their own right.  Standard sizes are 150cm x150cm, 300cm x150cm, & 600cm x 300cm

Box covers  - covers for plastic boxes used to store small components used during maintenance activities.

We also design bespoke covers in differing sizes and materials.  Manufacture is controlled by our proven quality system allowing both material and labour traceability.
