SolutionS

1. POLYMER CONCRETE MANHOLE COVER

  • Polymer Concrete Manhole Covers were initially developed in Germany around 1950s and have been used in SA since the late 1990s.
  • They are made from a binding material, in most cases resin, as well as composite materials.
  • They are made in all sizes that conventional manhole covers are made in and have to perform the SAME strength test as do cast iron manhole covers.
  • The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) has formally published a standard, SANS 1882 of 2003, to recognise the need for an alternative to cast iron and concrete.

Benefits as follows:

  • No metal element. They cannot be stolen for scrap value.
  • Around 40% cheaper compare to Cast Iron Manhole Covers. This allows more manhole covers for their money that will be used to procure Cast Iron Manhole Covers and enables a quicker solution to solve backlog of open manholes.
  • Lightweight. Easy to carry.
  • Can be moulded in any shape and color as per the client requirements.
  • Good resistance to chemical and against corrosion.
