TERRA FIRMA LIGHT WEIGHT PIT LIDS REDUCE RISK & COST
Costs associated with concrete pit lid breakages in New Housing Estates have a huge impact on annual maintenance budgets. Reducing maintenance costs is a very tangible way to assist alleviating ongoing budgetary pressure – as a result of the implementation of the Victorian Government’s Fair Go Rates System (Rate Capping).
Contractors are working in a high-risk area where concrete pit lid are prone to more breakages, due to high levels of construction vehicle activity while new housing estates are being built.
Terra Firma pit lids provide great strength and durability whilst protecting works from manual handling injuries associated with conventional heavy concrete or ductile iron alternatives.
Terra Firma Industries manufacture and supply a range of lightweight composite access covers and pit lids, in compliance with both the Infrastructure Design Manual (IDM) and Engineering Design & Construction Manual (EDCM).
