Concrete to Composite: Florida Based Water Treatment Facility Turns to Fibrelite for Composite Trench Access Panels

Read the Case Study

Advanced Design – Bigger Advantages

Fibrelite is the world leading manufacturer of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) glass reinforced plastic (GRP) composite manhole covers and trench panels. This sophisticated and highly specialized material is fast becoming recognized as the more effective modern alternative to traditional materials such as heavy steel and concrete.

Though metal covers were considered as a replacement, the following benefits meant Fibrelite’s FRP GRP composite covers were chosen:

  • Lightweight for easy and safe manual removal
  • Non-slip properties equivalent to a high-grade road
  • Chemically inert and corrosion resistant
  • Extremely strong and durable
Traditional concrete panels are unsafe and labor intensive to remove and often break apart over time

A large water treatment plant on the Atlantic coast of Florida has replaced their ageing, concrete trench panels with a series of Fibrelite’s lightweight, composite alternatives. The facility, which produces approximately 30 million gallons of drinking water per day, requires access to service pipe work on a regular basis for maintenance and repairs. The large concrete panels they had in place, common within the water treatment industry, were not only difficult and dangerous to remove but had also degraded and crumbled over time.
