Why use a composite manhole cover

Underground utility damage, higher operating and maintenance costs for existing facilities, and contamination of storage tank product can all be experienced due to rainwater infiltration in manhole covers.

Composite manhole covers prevent any ingress of surface water into chambers above the underground tank.

As well as being lightweight, it is typically a third of the weight of an equivalent-size cover produced in metal or concrete,
