The Superior Option for Manhole Frames & Covers
Composite Access Products (CAP)™ manufactures composite covers and frames with compression molding.
Unlike other composite options (RIM/RTM/SMC) CAPs use a unique proprietary combination of continuous/long and short fibers for both load AND surface strength.
CAP covers pass the AASHTO M 306 Proof Load test requirements for American highways with the rating of HS-25. CAP is THE ONLY US composite cover manufacture to receive a state DOT approval letter for use within roadway.
Here in CANADA, frames, grates, covers, and gratings are designed to CAN/CSA-S6, an ultimate limit state of 166.6 kN wheel load. The CANADIAN Proof of load test calls for 166.6kN applied to a 250mm x 250mm square plate (37,400lbs to 9.84" x 9.84"). The American AASHTO M-306, HS-25 test is 50,000lbs applied to a 9” x 9” square plate. This is more weight applied to a smaller point VS CAN/CSA-S6.
CAP Alert features an integrated ultrasonic level sensor and cellular transmitter, providing real-time data to prioritize maintenance & safeguard sanitary and stormwater assets.
