Fibrelite’s Steam Rated Covers Protect Against Heat For US University

Read the Case Study

Project Overview

Indiana University approached Fibrelite looking for steam rated manhole covers for new vaults and in replacement of existing covers on the Bloomington campus. The covers protect vaults that provide steam through two miles of tunnels across the campus.

Problem

The previously installed metal covers made access difficult, the adverse conditions of steam vaults had caused the locking mechanisms to fail. The covers would heat up due to the steam vaults below, creating a health and safety hazard and putting the students and maintenance staff at risk of burning themselves.

Solution

Fibrelite provided lightweight retrofit manhole covers which were heat resistant, eliminating potential health and safety risks. Fibrelite’s lockable covers can be removed and replaced using the FL7 lifting handle, preventing the need for heavy lifting equipment to remove and replace the covers. This was important on this project as regular access was required.

Results

Fibrelite’s heat resistant covers provided Indiana University with a reliable solution enabling safe and easy access to vaults, the customer is now planning to replace other metal covers and install many more Fibrelite covers across campus to reduce health and safety risks for students and maintenance staff.
