Composite non-slip manhole cover

Anti skid systems

Composite non-slip manhole cover Previously manhole covers were designed purely for durability, and offered almost no traction – they became slippery when wet and when they had become worn. This proved to be an extreme hazard not only in pedestrian areas but for vehicles such as motorbikes, scooters and bicycles. Our composite non-slip manhole cover provides the durability of a traditional cover but with added non slip properties making it the manhole cover of choice.

The European Parliament supports the view that “Roads should be built according to standards which take into account the needs of all road users” and called on the Commission to “promote best practices for road construction and maintenance and to encourage the use of motorcycle friendly protective barrier and promote the regular updating of CEN standards”

A number of motorcycle fatalities have been reported where metal manhole covers were involved. Loose, stolen, badly fitting, or ‘slippy’ in nature all contribute to the risk to vehicles travelling over them, especially those of the 2 wheel variety. A composite non-slip manhole cover from Structural Science is not only is durable and non-slip but it fits well can be supplied with a lock, made watertight, and can have a dip cap in the centre.

In addition to improving road safety our composite non slip manhole cover is popular in school playgrounds, petrol forecourts, and in pedestrian and industrial areas. Made from a material with a minimum co-efficient of friction of 0.7 (current health and safety recommendations stipulate a level of higher than 0.40 for use in public areas) it possesses a better top surface material for use in wet and dry or in a worn state than any other commercially used material.

Structural Science composites draw on over 20 years of knowledge in composite cover manufacture to become a leader in designing and supplying composite manhole cover solutions for underground access.
