Locking manhole covers

The FiberShield manhole cover from McGard is constructed of a durable, fiber reinforced polymer material with multiple security points. The lightweight cover is easy to handle and transport. It eliminates the lifting and dropping injuries caused by heavy, cast iron manhole covers. Weighing 80% less than cast iron, the cover maintains an H20 and EN124 rating. It is installed in seconds, and can be removed without bending over. The integrated locking system prevents removal and requires a registered key to operate.
