Manhole Cover Repair

Manhole Cover Repair In Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and South London.

We live in a fast paced world. Everyone is always going somewhere. We’re taking our kids to school, going to work, picking the kids up from school, going to football games and dance classes; always going somewhere. Our roadways take a lot of abuse from the daily commute of hundreds of thousands of vehicles, so damages to roads and manhole covers are inevitable. Manhole covers are made of cast iron, galvanised steel, concrete, or a combination of those materials. They may also be made of glass-reinforced plastic and other composite materials in effort to reduce the weight for handling.

Lighter weight materials offer better slip resistance and have better electrical insulating properties. Whatever the material, they are very strong and rarely crack under pressure, but it does happen. Manhole covers must be repaired or replaced when they become damaged or if they are stolen. Missing manhole covers are a serious safety hazard to the general public because they often hide heavy electrical equipment or drainage tunnels. They are sometimes stolen and sold as scrap metal when metal prices are on the rise.
