Beware of poor quality…
…they can, and sometimes do… fail. Poorly designed low quality products could fail under actual live H-20 conditions, and sometimes do as you can see. Photo shown is of a “fiber reinforced composite” manhole cover probably made in China although markings required by federal law are not visible anywhere on the top of this cover, nor is the manufacturer. Federal law requires that the country of origin be clearly visible on TOP of products imported to the U.S.
For your H-20 rated composite manhole cover needs, insist on buying only American made products. Bass & Hays® sells only EJ composite manhole cover products made entirely from “domestic source” materials of the highest “Made In USA” quality. EJ composite manhole cover products are properly engineered, designed, manufactured, and thoroughly tested in the USA. If it’s not clearly marked on the top “Made In USA” – it’s not domestic. When you buy American made from Bass & Hays as manufactured by EJ, you are buying the best.
