Glass Reinforced Plastic Manhole Covers

Forecourt Solutions is a leading manufacturer and worldwide distributor of composite manhole covers for the forecourt & construction industries. The covers provide lightweight watertight access covers for use over petroleum storage tanks and other utility applications.

The composite covers offer significant benefits over traditional metal covers, such as: -

  • Lightweight cover
  • Watertight seal
  • Integrated lock and lift-point
  • Hex non slip surface
  • Anti rotation frame
  • Zero scrap value (to deter theft)
  • Suitable for the harshest environments
  • Non corroding
  • Non conductive

Brightworks team of design engineers have assisted Forecourt Solutions with the development and 3D CAD modelling of several of their composite manhole cover ranges.

Brightworks provided support with design for manufacture and assembly, sealing gasket design, opening & lifting tools, material selection and location & locking features.

Brightworks designers also worked closely with Forecourt Solutions' Far East manufacturing partners to ensure the parts to be manufactured are correctly specified and to help maintain quality control in production.
