Manhole Covers & Grids
Manhole covers, or ‘drain covers’, are typically classified by their load-bearing capabilities. They are essential to urban infrastructure and provide access to underground utility networks like sewage, telecommunications, and electrical systems.
Manholes must be able to perform under the weight of heavy foot traffic and cars, trucks or even aeroplanes. That’s why we offer our customers products made from galvanised steel and cast iron. Their strength and resistance to the elements is to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles. Corrosion resistance is paramount for durability, which makes our galvanised steel manholes ideal for outdoor use.
They’re easy to install, inexpensive and perfect for replacing broken manholes at a cost-effective price. It’s important to note that they are most appropriate for pedestrian and slow-traffic spaces, not motorways, roads or high-traffic areas. Cast iron manhole covers, however, have a higher loading class and are designed to withstand the weight of many pedestrians or heavy vehicles.
