By OPW | Aug 15, 2017

Say goodbye to heavy steel covers and say hello to the NEW Matador composite cover by OPW! The Matador cover features OPW’s next-generation composite technology – making it the preferred low cost and lightest manhole cover on the market today.Matador Illustration

The Matador went through rigorous testing to ensure that it exceeds industry strength and reduces weight by up to 70 percent of traditional steel covers. 

“OPW engineered the Matador with next generation composite technology to make it the lightest cover in the industry, and priced it to compete with any cover on the market,” said Wolfgang Sanyer, Product Specialist at OPW Retail Fueling. “Our goal with this composite cover is to help customers gain independence from heavy steel covers while retaining quality and reliability.”

Available in 37” and 42” options, the Matador Composite Cover is lightweight and water resistant. The flared skirt provides spacing around the sump lid equivalent to 39" and 44" covers. This flared design promotes maximum water percolation. Standout featuresOPW Matador Composite Cover include a painted steel frame, a stainless steel recessed lift handle, and a polyethylene skirt with flair that prevents corrosion and rust.
