How do we do that?

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

You have probably seen the recent programmes on TV showing how something is manufactured or constructed, at Structural Science we have done the same.

Take some time, only 2 minutes –  to look at our informative video of how to make a composite, anti-slip, lightweight cover.

These covers are used in pavements, petrol forecourts, factories and utility companies.

They can be made in different colours, can be made watertight, have locks fitted and look great when they are fitted.

Increased demand from petrol forecourt applications

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

petrol stationStructural Science work with Petrol forecourts continues to grow with major retail oil companies choosing to fit SSC’s lightweight manhole covers.

The demanding requirements of forecourt covers which now have to be watertight and tested to EN124 standards, has brought renewed interest in our composite covers.

The main advantage of these strong yet lightweight covers is that Structural Science has designed a lifting handle which reduces any strain on the forecourt attendant’s back when a cover has to be removed. This reduces the chance of any personal injury, which eliminates time off work or any claims for injury.

SSC’s forecourt covers also can have a dip cap hole in the centre which allows for easy and quick inspection by forecourt operators.

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.
