Lightness and handness

Kio composite covers are 70% lighter than European made cast iron covers.

Thanks to their low weight they are easy to handle and to install, which means cost savings in both labour and plant, in addition to potential reductions in injuries during installation and maintenance.

The low weight also reflects into a considerable reduction in transport costs.
