Manhole covers

Manhole covers can be safety critical. In certain circumstances failure or misuse can lead to injury or loss of life. With this in mind, we have developed products that incorporate features that help eliminate failure mechanisms, minimising safety issues and optimising installed life cost.

The vast majority of our manhole covers are manufactured from heavy duty ductile iron, offering durable strength and long standing performance.

Our extensive ranges cover a multitude of sizes, including single and double square manhole covers, round and square to round. Our products conform to BS EN 124 and CD 534 (formerly HA 104/09) and many carry the Kitemark, meaning our products offer a trusted solution.

Gully grates

We offer a comprehensive range of gully grates including double and single hinged designs of various loadings are available, as well as a those suitable for cycle paths and shopping centres that promote pedestrian and cycle safety.

The majority of our gully grates conform to BS EN 124, CD 534, CD 526 and carry the Kitemark.

Bespoke manhole covers

Alongside our standard manhole cover ranges, we also offer bespoke designs. We have been lucky enough to work on amazing projects such as the iconic LGBTQ+ access cover with Thames Water, and commemorative covers for Abbey Road and the Whitechapel fatberg amongst others.

Whether you are looking to subtly to disguise your access cover, or something extravagant to shine proud and celebrate, we are able to help design and manufacture the perfect solution for you.

Manhole cover frame raising system

ClickLift™

ClickLift eliminates the time and resources required to dig out and reinstall frames to suit the final adoptable surface. This eliminates the potential damage to manhole covers during construction and removes the potential for residents claims for damage to their vehicles and massively reduces disruption. ClickLift provides housing developers with huge savings in terms of time, money and hassle. Allowing whole estates to have their covers raised to the final surfacing level, in as little as a few hours.

The hard hat for your ironwork

Armadillo

Armadillo is a complete range of protector shells, designed to be placed over manhole covers and gully grates to provide enhanced protection during the construction phase.

Armadillo provides protection from construction site traffic, including tracked vehicles, and can be easily removed when the final surfacing is completed. This ensures manhole covers and gully grates can start their service life in ‘as new’ condition to optimise longevity.

Years of exceptional performance

Our Highway D400 covers are still operating at full capacity after three and a half years of being subjected to high levels of HGV traffic. Meaning the organisation can focus solely on new work, rather than being distracted by manhole covers that have failed prematurely and need fixing or, in some cases, reinstalling.
