Steam Covers
Heat resistant, lightweight and corrosion resistant manhole covers without compromising on strength.

Fiber reinforced composite has three key properties: it is lightweight, durable and very strong. The key benefit of composite is the strength to weight ratio compared to other materials, however many other benefits are apparent when using composite technology to produce manhole covers.

Traditional metal covers create health & safety hazards for both the general public and company employees. The thermal gradient properties of composite significantly reduce heat transfer from a steam vault to the surface of the cover. The same properties also mean that the cover will take much longer to heat up when subjected to a simple heat source such as direct sunlight.

Benefits Compared to Metal Covers
  • Significant reduction in heat transfer
  • Lightweight without compromising strength
  • Ergonomic removal and replacement with specially designed handle
  • Watertight with proven performance under load
  • Anti-static and does not conduct electricity
  • Improved anti-skid and anti-wear properties
  • Non-corrosive and resistant to sodium chloride
  • Eliminates risk of theft due to no scrap/resale value
Vented Cover

Other Benefits
  • Exceeds DOT H20 & H25 load requirements
  • Monolithic structure will not crack or delaminate
  • Maintenance free
  • Multifaceted design that won't spin out
  • Security locks available

Fit a Fibrelite the first time and you can forget about future problems. The original brand of cover offers tremendous advantages over cheaper "copycat" composite and steel products.

Fibrelite guarantees high quality, high performance products which exceed global health and safety standards.
