What are the benefits of composite access covers?

Our composite manhole covers offer significant benefits over covers made from steel or ductile and concrete.

  • Anti-slip/skid surface – equivalent to a high quality road surface, wet or dry.
  • Lockable- locks can be provided to our range of products, customer specific locks can be designed offering added security.
  • Watertight seals – C250 and D400 ranges
  • Radio frequency waves – can transmit without interference for data logging.
  • Environmentally friendly – Our lightweight covers typically use a third less material by weight and significantly reduce the transportation impact on the environment.
  • Health and Safety –
  1. Reduces the risk of back injury when in situ fitting and removing covers.
  2. Eliminating the risk of slipping even in wet conditions due to the polished slip resistance value
  • Theft reduction – There is no residual value in our covers or frames and so eliminates the reason for theft.
