Fibrelite Manufactures an Extensive Range of Composite Manhole Covers to Fit Every Access Requirement


Fibrelite manhole covers now provide access solutions for every sector and remain the industry standard in retail fuelling, specified by all major oil companies.

Covers come as standard with a C250 (25 tonne) load rating, for use in areas with slow moving traffic, or a D400/HS25 (40 tonne) load rating, for use in areas experiencing heavy wheel traffic – such as diesel lanes, truck stops or bus depots. Load ratings from B125 (12.5 tonne) to F900 (90 tonne) are available on request.

Custom covers can be made in any colour or even incorporate custom logos or markings moulded into the upper surface of the cover for product or brand identification.

Retail Fuelling

Fibrelite manufactures the widest range of composite manhole covers for the Retail Fuelling industry, offering the industry’s leading watertight, easy to remove, non-bolted cover – in a large selection of shapes and sizes including general tank sump access, multiport and single port fill sump applications and interstitial sump and monitoring well covers.

Innovative Design

Our patented internal structure allows Fibrelite to create a wide range of shapes and sizes that still provide the maximum load bearing capacity. Fibrelite’s high-strength one-piece moulded design allows for the industry’s only multiport or single port composite covers.

The Specifier’s Choice

Fibrelite’s line of composite covers is considered the industry standard for their high strength and durability. For this reason, Fibrelite’s covers are often specified by designers when the application involves heavy wheel loads or the customer demands a long-life cycle product. When compared to cheaper “copycat” composite products, Fibrelite’s covers will provide the end user with a long-lasting product that will continue to perform years after installation.
