Vineyard, Jersey

Fibrelite supply composite access covers to private vineyard

Now allowing easy and safe access

Fibrelite recently supplied a private vineyard in Jersey with lightweight composite access covers. Another first! The Fibrelite covers are now fully installed and have been used specifically to cover manifolds for a ground source heating installation with buried pipes between the rows of vines. Fibrelite was specified by Richard Le Sueur Architects.

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.

Fibrelite has established a global reputation for high-quality products and superior after sales service. The company has held accreditation to both the ISO quality standard and British Standards Kite Mark since 1998.

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 B125 covers and rising metal prices, composite can now compete head to head with the likes of cast iron.

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.

Lightweight without compromising on strength

Fibrelite composite covers are tested to BS EN 124 and are available with load ratings from B125 up to F900 depending on the application. The patented monolithic structure of a Fibrelite cover means that they will not crack or delaminate during usage. They are also chemically inert and have zero scrap value meaning Fibrelite composite covers are an increasingly popular choice over metal covers.
