A new generation of composite manhole covers

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

This makes our composite covers and frames light, strong and hard wearing to meet the requirements for installing in road, pedestrian, and industrial areas.

Structural Science Composites has over twenty years’ knowledge in composite covers manufacture and is a leader in designing and supplying these for underground access.

Our composite manhole covers will not damage your back when you have to move them, due to their light weight and easy lifting aids.

However, our covers are also extremely durable, with a guaranteed long working life and can be supplied with lockable and watertight options.

Composite covers also have the advantage of being anti-slip, even when wet, non-corrosive and radio frequency friendly. Coloured covers can also be provided to aid access identification.

The properties of the composite materials enable 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 and frames 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 composite covers product range.
