Fibrelite Supply Composite Access Covers to Replace Heavy Odor-Emitting Odour-Emitting Galvanized Galvanised Covers

Project Overview

A solution was needed to solve the problems caused by the previously installed galvanized galvanised covers used to cover a 2800 x 1400mm grease pit. These covers claimed to be odor odour tight but weren’t, resulting in the constant emission of a terrible odor. odour. The heavy galvanized galvanised covers were also extremely difficult to remove and caused other health and safety issues as they were slippery when wet.

Fibrelite’s light but strong; slip resistant flat sealed composite covers were specified to eliminate all of these hazards.

Solution

Fibrelite supplied a flat sealed solution of FL140/B 125 load rated covers (1400 x 700mm) configured alongside one another and sealed in between each frame.

  • Completely odor odour tight
  • Easy removal for one person
  • No hinges/mechanical struts or gas assist lifts required
  • Slip resistant
  • Aesthetically pleasing – orange covers requested
Unsafe lifting of the old covers - health and safety hazard

Now Allowing Easy and Safe Access

Fibrelite’s composite access covers are lightweight, durable and very strong. Every Fibrelite cover is manufactured using high-technology RTM production methods to create a highly engineered, monolithic composite product.

Composite covers have always been seen as a high cost alternative to traditional metal products. However, with Fibrelite’s technological advances in the manufacturing process, the development of our B 125 covers and rising metal prices, composite can now compete head to head with the likes of cast iron and steel.

Composite covers are now being used in a wide range of applications and are ideal for access to sewage systems, underground pipework, drainage networks, electrical junction boxes, water treatment plants and commercial fuel storage.
