Heavy Duty Roadway Applications

No Shortcuts on Strength

The DUROSTREET® access assembly is the strongest and most durable composite manhole cover on the market. Since safety is our top priority, we proof load test to 50,000 lb (per AASHTO M306 (H25) standards for cast iron) and exceed industry standards by fatigue testing to 2 million cycles at 16,000 lb. Our superior composite technology also makes it the lightest weight heavy duty cover on the market, making it safer for workers. 

Why Composites?

Composite manhole frames and covers are anti-corrosive, have non-conductive properties, and eliminate signal interference. Their reduced weight improves the ease of access and overall worker safety, and with no value for scrap metal, theft can be significantly reduced. Learn more about Composite Product Benefits

Not all Composite Covers are Built to Last

Some new to the market composite products are made of poor quality materials that may look the part, but perform poorly in long term durability performance and can impact composite perception overall. This can create a dangerous safety hazard if composite covers are failing in the field. Using compression molding technology costs less, however, these products have an inferior durability and long term performance—and  independent research confirms this.

Safe Products Start with Superior Designs and Materials

As the leading composite manufacturer, we have built up over 25 years of tradecraft and know-how when it comes to producing composite products. In addition to our expertise in the US, we collaborate with our colleagues in Europe on product design to ensure best-in-class manufacturing and longevity in the field. The DUROSTREET access assembly delivers superior strength and durability compared to other composite options on the market.




Built Better

light weight - ergonomic

Our covers are the lightest heavy duty composite covers on the market for roadway use, while taking no shortcuts on strength. They weigh between 30 lbs (22" clear opening) and 82 lbs (36" clear opening). The optimized strength-to-weight design and one-person operation improves ease of access and overall worker safety.
manufactured to a higher standard
Glass-fibers-and-ovemold-cutaway.jpg
DUROSTREET covers are produced with Reaction Injection Molding (RIM). Long continuous strands of glass fiber reinforcement incorporated in the cover stretch from one side to the other and polyurethane resin components are mixed and injected into the mold under heat and high pressure. They are also the only composite product on the market with durable overmold around the perimeter of the cover and frame that dampens traffic vibration and improves wear resistance.
retrofit with iron frames

We offer custom sized covers that are designed to use with cast iron frames. Contact your local sales branch for more information.



Built to Last

EXCELLENT FATIGUE LIFE - Durability

Our heavy duty covers are fatigue tested to 2 million loading cycles at 16,000 pounds of load and are designed to withstand heavy roadway traffic.

EXTREME STRENGTH

Tensile-Strength_web_border.png
DUROSTREET covers tested over three times as strong as other compression molded composite products in independent lab testing. The data clearly showed that continuous glass fibers have significantly stronger properties than short glass fibers. Taking into account the importance of the strength-to-weight ratio, it’s clear that by using continuous glass fibers, significantly stronger and lighter covers can be produced.

SUPERIOR WEAR/ABRASION
