A new generation of composite manhole covers

Structural Science Composites Ltd (SSC) has developed a new range of composite manhole covers, using their patented Thrubeam® technology.

This makes our covers and frames light, strong and durable to meet the requirements for installing in road, pedestrian and industrial areas. But they won’t damage your back when you have to move them.

The properties of the composite materials enables our products to be fitted into demanding locations and used by utility companies, petrol forecourts, factories, builders, main contractors and infrastructure developers.

All our composite manhole covers are tested to the EN124:1994 standards and we have third party test evidence for all the physical properties the covers have be designed to perform.

Please take a few moments to review our website and products. If there are any questions we have not answered, or any areas we could improve, please use the contact page and we will respond to you directly.
