What Are Round Manhole Covers?
Round manhole covers are essential components in municipal and industrial underground drainage systems, serving as secure lids for manhole openings that provide access to underground utilities.
These covers are typically made from materials like cast iron, galvanised steel, or plastic, each selected for its durability, strength, and suitability to the environment in which it is installed.
We exclusively stock plastic round manhole covers, but galvanised steel manhole covers are available on our dedicated manhole covers page. There, you'll also discover manhole cover frame variants as well as square manhole covers.
