Composite access cover leader Structural Science Composites launches new website with improved navigation and new features

Posted: Friday 4th July 2014

As part of its continuous improvements in customer experience, the pioneer of composite access/manhole covers, Structural Science Composites (SSC), has developed and launched an entirely new web platform. This has been designed to support the company’s plans to develop its business globally, for its market-leading Thrubeam® range of vehicular and pedestrian manhole/access products.

With improved search options and better functionality, customers encompassing the utilities, highways, petrol forecourts and factories sectors visiting can access information quicker and easier than ever before.

The new site includes details all SSC products and services and focuses on the benefits of the new generation of patented Thrubeam® technology, which outperforms traditional metal, concrete and steel manhole/access cover rivals in every way.

For example, SSC composite covers are around 25% the weight of an equivalent sized concrete cover, 33% of steel/iron covers and 70% of aluminium, yet they still possess the same strength as steel. SSC covers are also up to 23% lighter than the nearest like for like performing composite cover. These lightweight properties are crucial in reducing the risk of injury. In addition, they are non-corrosive, anti-slip and present lower life costs than metal and concrete covers, which could save users many millions of pounds over time. The latest range includes generic covers suitable for pedestrian areas (B125), low vehicular areas (C250) and high vehicular areas (D400).

Other features on the website include case studies, exhibitions, product brochure downloads, company and new product news, and full contact details.
