Fibrelite is the world's leading and largest manufacturer of lightweight, anti-slip, anti-static, non-corrosive, watertight composite manhole and trench access covers and is the industry's innovator in composite technology. Fibrelite's lightweight, watertight, incredibly strong composite covers with zero re-sale value in the scrap market are the perfect metal manhole theft deterrent. The continuing increase in the cost of metal has stimulated the theft of a wide range of metal products including manhole, trench and gully covers. Metal theft is now having a serious impact on the global economy and hitting taxpayers directly through inflated insurance premiums, high repair costs as well as causing extremely serious health and safety hazards. Many industries including the railways, telecommunications, the power industry and utility companies are now subject to continuous and repeated attacks of metal theft. This has led to design and civil engineers, architects and other specifiers seeking alternatives. Composite is proving to be the perfect solution. Fibrelite's slip resistant covers are excellent insulators against heat; they are chemically inert and have zero re-sale value in the scrap market (the answer to the metal thieves). They are highly effective in covering manholes, gullies and trenches that contain cable, wire or fluid and perfect for where frequent access is required as they are such a lightweight alternative to metal.
