Fibrelite Solve Manual Handling Issues by Developing Composite Covers to Replace Heavy, Difficult to Remove, Concrete Covers
Read the Case Study
Fibrelite has recently developed a range of composite access covers to replace traditional heavy concrete infill covers. The range includes D400, E600 and F900 load ratings. These have been designed to be installed into existing frames. This industry first means it is now possible to upgrade to modern composite materials simply and effectively without the costs and disruption associated with breaking concrete to replace with new frames.
Lightweight and Strong – Safe Manual Handling
Traditional concrete covers are extremely difficult to remove to allow access, often requiring time-consuming, expensive, specialist lifting equipment. This often leads to manual handling problems and possible risks to operatives trying to remove the covers. Fibrelite’s new range of bespoke replacement composite covers offers the best strength to weight ratio in the industry. Whilst achieving BS EN 124, D400, E600 and F900 load ratings their unique composite design means they can be easily removed using a simple ergonomically safe lifting handle.
Bespoke Composite Covers for Retrofitting
Composite materials are becoming increasingly popular across a range of industries and Fibrelite’s composite covers now offer an innovative solution by eliminating common health and safety issues often associated with manual handling.
