Worldwide sales build on increased demand for lightweight solutions

Monday, October 16th, 2017

SSC have been successful in winning business across the world, because of the benefits of fitting lightweight composite covers which can be locked, sealed and have an anti-slip surface.

More and more countries are becoming aware of the inherent benefits of fitting lightweight covers and especially when fitting the covers by installers. They are easier to handle when installing which generally improves the installations and makes it easier for inspections at a later date as it only requires one person to remove or replace a cover into the frame.

SSC have designed 2 types of lifting handles which allows the safe and easy removal of a cover from a frame. One can be used on unsealed covers and the other is called a seal breaker. The seal breaker has a foot pedal which rests on the floor and can be stepped on to break the seal, which allows the cover to be removed without putting pressure on the operator back.

This has reduced the number of back injuries for the operators and is one of the major factors why utility and petrol forecourt companies around the world install our covers.

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.

Increasing demand for anti-slip manhole covers in schools

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Anti slip manhole covers, Manchester, Chorlton, CheshireThere is an ever increasing demand for anti-slip manhole covers in schools.

In recent months there have been 2 serious accidents involving children hurting themselves due to slipping on a metal manhole cover, one child seriously, breaking their arm.

This increase in demand has resulted in a number of sales of our B125 range of products which have been fitted to replace the slippery metal covers.

Our anti slip covers have a calcinated bauxite added into the surface material which enhances the non-slip benefit as well as giving a very hard wearing surface.
