Lightweight Composite Covers

Safe, easy lifting

SSC lightweight composite covers are around 25% the weight of an equivalent sized concrete cover, 33% of steel/iron covers and 70% of aluminium, yet they still possess the same strength as steel.  SSC covers are also up to 23% lighter than the nearest like for like performing composite cover. The benefit of lightweight composite covers is they are easier to remove and replace.

SSC composite covers:

  • All covers guaranteed to carry the stated load requirements.
  • Carry loads on positions that traditionally required a metal solution.
  • Reduce the risk of back injury.
  • Have the capacity to embed chips in covers and frames to make them ‘smart covers’.

Removal: 1. Insert the removal tool and turn through 90° 2. Pull the foot plate down and press until the gasket seal releases. 3. Fold back the foot plate, then lean back slightly and pull cover towards you. Replacement: 4. Insert removal tool, push back the cover with the aid of your foot, until it engages with the frame/rim. 5. Twist the removal tool through 90° and remove. Stamp down on the cover to re-engage the sealing system.

Our lightweight composite covers make access quick and easy without compromising on strength and durability.
