FRP/Composite Manhole Covers Are The Future – Say Goodbye To Cast Iron
As a new dawn emerges we here at Super Cover are very excited about what lies ahead in the area of FRP/composite products. Truly the sky is the limit when it comes to FRP – fiber reinforced plastic and the civil infrastructure industry. With advanced polymer composite materials we are now seeing whole industries being transformed overnight. It goes without saying America is facing a serious infrastructure nightmare. Across the nation, bridges, highways, rail lines, water lines, and sewer systems are deteriorating at a rapid pace. Likewise, one of the principal factors related to the deterioration of infrastructure is corrosion due to cast iron.
Super Covers are changing the manhole cover industry as they have extraordinary mechanical and important in-service properties which when combined with other materials are utilized to improve the stiffness/strength, durability, the whole-life cost benefit and the environmental impact. What has been known, and what we have seen with traditional cast iron manhole covers is that they degrade into a non usable state or sometimes they are removed and sold for scrap value. Don’t get us wrong, cast iron covers have served this great nation well, however, it is time to move on to better, more environmentally friendly and safer products. The prime reason for using FRP products is because of their inherent corrosion resistance, however, FRP boasts other reasons as well, like cost savings, better for the environment and they are generally safer.
Our philosophy is simple, we supply industry best products at the best value backed by the best US based service. We stand behind our company and product line.
