What Does Composite Mean?
What does composite mean? Originating from the Latin word “compono,” a composite is something produced by combining two or more different materials that, once combined, become one. Our composite covers are polyester resin reinforced with layered fiberglass.
Why a Composite Manhole Cover May Be Best for Your Property
Composite manhole covers offer a lightweight solution for heavy-duty traffic areas. For example, if your manhole cover will regularly experience vehicle traffic and is also opened regularly, a lightweight cover can offer convenience and ease of access.
Composite Manhole Covers vs. Other Materials
There are several reasons to choose a composite manhole cover over other materials such as concrete, cast iron, or steel. One reason is the weight of the cover. A composite manhole cover weighs significantly less than its counterparts, making it easier to lift and remove. Additionally, composite covers will not rust or corrode.
Applications for Composite Manhole Covers
Our composite covers are designed to be installed in concrete applications and are rated for H-20 single-point wheel loading for vehicle traffic under 25 mph.
