Install once and protect, not twice and regret
It's a common issue that ironwork intended for vehicles with pneumatic tyres can become damaged by heavy plant during a construction project. Working with customers across the country we have developed a cost effective and easy to use solution to this age old problem.
Manhole covers and gully grates are often installed during the early phases of a construction project. During this phase ironwork is exposed to extreme loads from heavy plant including, tracked vehicles, forklift prongs, digger buckets and more.
Cover and gratings installed in these situations were never designed to accommodate these scenarios. This can result in premature failure and additional costs in materials and labour to put them right before handover.
In addition, gully grates can often become clogged with silt and debris which can cause severe issues for the drainage system and the water course. This can result in high cleaning and maintenance costs, residual issues from long-term debris ingress and potentially significant fines.
