Innovative infrastructure access solutions from EJ enhance safety and security
While out for an evening stroll in a local park with my wife, I noticed our local utility had installed raised manhole barrels to prevent surcharging during flood events from the nearby river. The attached photograph shows that the utility is concerned about security of the system, and has gone to some lengths to secure the casting.
This type of installation presents utility maintenance crews with an additional challenge: What do maintenance workers do with the cover when it is removed, and how do they reinstall the cover? Removal will mean taking the cover off of the structure then using a lift assist device (or second worker) to put the cover back in place.
An access cover that won’t break your back or smash your toes
EJ has developed the innovative Revolution® access cover assembly to addresses the problems of infrastructure security and worker safety. The Revolution® cover is permanently and securely mounted to the casting frame. Unlock, lift and easily swing sideways to safely open the cover. Gravity and friction hold the cover open while maintenance work is underway. When work is completed, the Revolution® cover is simply swung back into place on its permanent sealed seat, and secured with EON bolts or optional padlocks. Simply stated, “A Walk In The Park”.
