A manhole cover, also known as a Sewer Cover, Chamber Cover, the manual cover, etc.. is a removable plate that forms the lid over the opening of a manhole, an open large hole area enough for a person to pass through which is used as an access point for an underground area or pipe. It is specially designed to prevent anyone from falling inside an underground hole and to keep out away unauthorized persons and material.
Among all the manhole covers, SMC Manhole Cover is one of the best types of manhole cover.
We are pioneer in SMC Manhole Cover in South Asia.

Types Of Manhole Cover
There are different types of manhole cover. Here we have discussed four different types of manhole cover
- FRP(Fibre Reinforced Plastic)
- GRP(Glass Reinforced Plastic)
- BMC(Bulk Molding Compound)
- SMC (Sheet Moulding Compound)
FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic)
FRP is one of the best alternatives for traditionally manufactured manhole cover i.e cast iron, ductile iron, or PVC materials. FRP manhole cover has a longer life span and has the capacity for heavy loads. Increasing heavy traffic and heavy metals completely replace traditional manhole cover with FRP manhole covers.
Advantages of FRP Manhole Covers
- 100% waterproof
- Light in Weight And Easy to Handle
- Available in different granite finishes
- Easily withstand heavy loads of traffic
GRP( Glass Reinforced Plastic)
GRP is a fiber-reinforced polymer that is made up of plastic materials reinforced by fine fibers of glass.
Advantages of GRP Manhole Covers
- GRP Manhole Cover is Non-recyclable
- Resist weight for up to 40 tons
- Resist Bacteria and does not rot.
BMC( Bulk Molding Compound)
BMC manhole cover raw material need to add steel bar to improve its load capacity. This manhole cover has the best electrical properties, heat resistance, chemical resistance, and also adapts to various molding processes.
Advantages Of BMC Manhole Covers
- The production process is simple
- It helps to reduce the harm caused by the theft of the product.
- Its temporary load capacity is high
- Good quality appearance
- Cost is low in comparison to other manhole covers.
SMC(Sheet Moulding Compound)
SMC Manhole Cover(Sheet Moulding Compound) is one of the types of manhole cover which is made up of fiberglass and unsaturated polyester resin.
Surya Kiran Fibre Industries manufactured SMC manhole cover which is the best alternative for all other types of manhole cover.
Advanatges of SMC Manhole Cover
- Higher stretch resistance and bend resistance.
- Anti-theft, no recycle value.
- Durable service life.
- Anti-corrosion, anti-slip.
- UV-proof and V0-flammability rating.
