what is smartgrip?

SmartGrip TechnologyTM  is an asymmetrical raised pattern top plate for the Eccles range of access covers and frames.

It has been designed with a high multi-directional micro texture to improve stability against aquaplaning.

Micro texture refers to the small-scale texture of the top of the raised pattern (which controls contact between the tyre rubber and the surface of the access cover).

Macro texture refers to the large-scale texture of the cover plate as a whole, due to the raised pattern arrangement.
