Read the Case Study
Fibrelite’s lightweight composite covers have been used to replace old concrete covers that had become unsafe, and unfit for purpose. The FL60-D400 covers were installed as a replacement to the previous concrete ones, ideal for its lightweight single person removal (with the FL7A), with 40 ton tonne load rating properties.
The customer had old unsafe concrete covers that were heavy to lift and were also crumbling away. These covers ran along the side of a tunnel and had to be watertight if any water got into the tunnel.
Innovative. Durable. Practical. Proven.
Fibrelite’s composite covers are tested to BS EN 124 and are available with load ratings from A15 up to F900 depending on the application. The patented monolithic structure of a Fibrelite cover means that they will not crack or delaminate during usage. They are also chemically inert and have zero re-sale value to the scrap market, meaning Fibrelite composite covers are an increasingly popular choice over metal covers.
