Fibrelite Provides Non-Corrosive, Anti-Slip Access Solution for Keighley Leisure Centre Poolside

Read the Case Study

Project Overview

Fibrelite was recently commissioned to replace a corroded metal access cover pool side at a local leisure centre in Keighley.

Problem

Poolside conditions are very demanding for traditional metal access covers due to the constant moisture in the air and exposure to chlorine which both cause corrosion. The cover must also be safe for the public to walk over in bare feet without slipping, or cutting themselves due to rust. The equipment underneath must be protected from water, and easily be accessed by one person.

Innovative. Durable. Practical. Proven.

Solution

Fibrelite’s standalone sealed manhole cover (FL96) proved a perfect solution for Keighley Leisure Center. Centre. The cover has a watertight seal to protect the equipment underneath from water infiltration which it achieves without bolts, and is lightweight enough to be safely removed by one person with the FL7A lifting handle. Fibrelite’s composite covers have an inherent resistance to corrosion, so are ideal for use in highly corrosive environments like leisure centers. centres This means that the cover will remain watertight and safe to walk over year on year. All covers come with an anti-slip tread pattern as standard, proven to surpass health and safety advisory conditions, ensuring safety for those walking over it.
