UK’S first commemorative LGBTQ+ manhole cover is installed
A commemorative access cover, commonly referred to as a manhole cover, dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community has been created as part of a partnership between Wrekin Products and Thames Water. The cover has been designed to symbolise and immortalise the organisations’ allegiance to the community and their commitment to increasing diversity on the streets of the UK.
A simple solution to stopping raw sewage pollution
Raw sewage was discharged into England’s waterways more than 400,000 times during 2020, according to latest Environment Agency figures. Foul drains that leak or overflow allow untreated effluent to enter storm drains, ultimately polluting our rivers and seas.
Solutions for Highways and Infrastructure
We are at a significant point in the UK’s history with investment pouring in to solve the creaking infrastructure that surrounds us. This includes solutions to the congested roads in our cities, towns and villages, as well as the inter-city road and rail networks which are in need of renewal.
Expanded range of round manhole covers and new reducer rings coming soon
Wrekin have recently expanded their range of 450mm diameter manhole covers to suit PPIC installations in a wide range of loading environments. The ductile iron products in this range are able to receive a universal and retrofittable ‘safety reducing ring’.

Innovative access cover solutions with exceptional customer support
Ductile iron and steel access covers, or gully gratings and bespoke steel solutions, we have what you're looking for.
Manhole covers can be safety critical. In certain circumstances failure or misuse could lead to injury or loss of life. With this in mind we have developed products that incorporate features which help to eliminate these failure mechanisms, minimising safety issues, optimising whole life cost.
We have a gully grating for every scenario including straight bar, hinged, v-grating and more. Our gratings are available across all of our key ranges, Unite, Highway and Tristar meaning you can find the right grating for you that offers the exact feature specification you are looking for.
Steel access covers
We offer a comprehensive range of steel access covers, all designed and manufactured to the highest standards. Our standard range includes pressed and fabricated steel and recessed covers. We can also work alongside you to produce a bespoke solution that is tailored to your exacting requirements.
Geosynthetics solutions from the experts
With an innovative approach to manufacture, project design, specification and service we have established ourselves as one of the UK's leading suppliers of geosynthetics.
Our extensive range includes ground stabilisation, reinforcement, erosion control, drainage, environmental protection, grass protection and weed suppression.
FasTrack and MultiTrack geotextiles, and E'Grid geogrids our amongst out most popular ranges, having been used throughout the UK countless critical infrastructure projects.
We are always on hand to provide you with the knowledge you need. Offering to help and support you every step of the way, from project design and specification through to delivery, installation and beyond.
Our products, systems and services can help to provide solutions to everyday civil engineering problems. Take a look at the key project areas where we can help you to save time and effort, all while increasing safety and lowering whole life cost.

We're ready and able to help
Our systems, services and solutions are perfectly positioned to offer significant savings in a construction market which is experiencing increased pressure. The demands on the construction sector have never been greater, with significant demand in terms of new house building and generation defining infrastructure projects to improve transport and energy generation.
Our innovative solutions can offer time, cost and hassle savings to all involved in the process of specifying and installing our civil engineering solutions.
- roadworks carried out every year on UK roads.
- new homes required every year by 2025 in England.
- to be spent in 2021-2022 on economic infrastructure projects in the UK.
- The UK aims to be net zero emissions by 2050.
Building sustainability into everything we do
With the recently released IPCC report on climate change there has never been a more critical time to be aware of our impact on the environment - and Wrekin and the wider civil engineering industry takes its responsibilities extremely seriously.
We are committed to working towards minimising the environmental impact of all our activities, from developing products that increase whole of life performance, to recycling and reducing waste and emissions wherever we can.
