Fibrelite launches new innovations in FRP composite access covers
Fibrelite's comprehensive range of FRP composite trench covers are ideal for covering large areas, gullies, trenches, and ducts where occasional or frequent access may be required.

U.S.-based manufacturer Fibrelite has seen a tremendous increase in inquiries for their lightweight composite access covers from industries keen to move away from the traditionally-used metal and concrete and change specifications to composites.
FRP composite manhole covers are ideal for problem areas, particularly those prone to skid related accidents. Traditional cast iron covers quickly become polished and therefore provide a poor level of grip, which can lead to serious accidents through increased risk of skidding and slipping, even more so when wet.
Benefits offer corrosion resistance; an ergonomic design that's health- and safety-friendly; customized, colored covers for easy identification; increased theft prevention; and a slip-resistant design.
Fibrelite's access covers are lightweight, durable and very strong. They are manufactured using high-technology Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) production methods to create a highly-engineered, monolithic-composite product. This offers advanced strength to weight ratio, allowing for maximum load bearing strength and durability while remaining lightweight and easy to handle. Fibrelite's standard manhole covers also offer watertight solutions in a wide range of sizes and shapes.
Fibrelite's comprehensive range of FRP composite trench covers are ideal for covering large areas, gullies, trenches, and ducts where occasional or frequent access may be required. Further, bespoke sizes are also available.
