The Undeniable Reasons Why You Need to Switch to Composite Manhole Covers
In the world of construction, new technology and more efficient building materials are hitting the market every day. Manhole covers are not excluded from these advancements; many people are ditching old cast iron manhole covers for composite covers. Made of non-metallic materials, these covers offer many benefits in their updated design. Read below to see five reasons why composite manhole covers are your best option.
They Eliminate Theft
Did you know manhole theft is a serious issue? Not only in the U.S., but around the world; over 10,000 manhole covers were taken in the city of Calcutta, India in just two months! People steal manhole covers to sell the material to make a profit, but composite covers have zero scrap value and are unattractive to thieves.
They are Lighter
Compared to their iron counterparts, composite manhole rings and covers are much lighter. This also reduces strain on workers so that they can work quickly and more efficiently. They also reduce injuries: imagine dropping an iron cover on your foot as opposed to a composite one…Ouch!
They can hold up to corrosive environments
Sewage and waste water can be corrosive and wear away at iron. Consider heavy duty manhole covers made from composite materials to stand up to any noxious or corrosive liquids or gases in a sewage system.
They Save Money
You will save money in maintenance and replacements because composite styles are much more durable. In addition, they cost less to ship; their light weight uses less fuel when delivering the product to jobsites.
They are Long-Lasting
Our composite manholes typically last over 30 years. The same cannot be said for iron systems; they require a lot of maintenance in the same time period. Concerned about the integrity of manholes in a high-traffic area? Composite covers come in fully traffic rated versions that can withstand 30% more weight.
Make the switch and invest in composite manhole covers to start reaping these benefits today!
