Manhole Cover

The Problem:

When wet, particularly during the winter period when ice became an additional hazard the metal surfaces of the manhole covers became a major slip hazard.


To produce an effective slip resistant coating system in an outside environment, which was also aesthetically pleasing, within a very restricted budget.


By applying a fast curing polymeric system incorporating a very hardwearing aluminium oxide aggregate in diagonal stripe pattern was applied, providing a very economic durable grip system.

Benefit to the Client:

  • Low cost per cover
  • Minimal disruption to operation
  • Hard wearing long life solution
  • Safe working environment
