The weight of KIO composite material covers is 70% lower than the weight of European made cast iron covers. Thanks to its low weight the cover is easy to handle and to install, which means manpower and tool costs saving and a substantial reduction of injuries during installation and maintenance.
Low weight also reflects into a considerable reduction of transport costs.
Italian Decree-law 81/08 says that the maximum weight allowed for handling loads: the limit is 25 kg. Most of our composite material coversâ€™ weight is lower than this limit for B125 and C250 classes.
