What’s under your feet?

Composite ventable covers, Vented cover, Manhole coversHave you ever thought to look down while you are walking in busy city centres especially in London?

Structural Science are constantly looking of ways to improve the ground we walk on. For years and years manhole covers have either been made from iron or metal and concrete. These covers do nothing for the appearance of the paths and walkways and in fact can be a trip or slip hazard.

SSC has taken on the mantle of improving and developing pedestrian covers and is a leading supplier of lightweight composite manhole covers.

SSC covers have a number of benefits over the traditional iron and concrete covers. The biggest advantage for a person walking in the street is that the covers have an aggregate material which is embedded into the surface, this make the surface of the covers anti-slip wet or dry.

This is not just an idle claim because SSC’s covers have been tested by 2 independent test houses Lucius Pitkins in the US and the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) in the UK.

So the next time you are walking along the street look down and see what type of cover you are walking on. If it is not an SSC composite cover walk around it!
