Manhole cover takes the load
Fabweld Steel Products has launched a new recessed manhole cover and frame, with a unique feature eliminating health and safety lifting concerns.
The SOLO SLIDE is a recessed cover and frame fabricated from mild steel which can blend in with the surrounding area. A unique feature of the SOLO SLIDE, part of FSP’s FAB Pave range, is an ergonomically designed key which allows for single person operation.
The drainage access specialist is manufacturing the product in high grade 6mm mild steel to ensure stability under load and longevity, with tapered covers and a flush soffit to ensure the cover can be removed easily from the frame.
Managing Director Richard Hilton said: “SOLO SLIDE is part of our comprehensive FAB Pave range and has been designed to be filled with a solid material which means the cover blends in with the area in which it’s fitted.
“A vital feature which eliminates potential health and safety issues over handling is that one person can lift the cover with a unique key. The functional design ensures an upright posture for the operator and makes it user friendly.”
