Absorb - X / Drain

Absorb - X
Absorb - X

In many countries, when heavy rains come, the drain fails to function properly and experiences flooding damage on roads.

Our product solves the problems of drain. Usually, small holes act as drains and when the bottom plate is filled with water, the spring scale inside goes down and the x-shaped sheet metal goes down.

Our products don`t have trash in them. Large garbage can be disposed of by simple cleaning. If small trash enters, the plate can be lifted, separated and removed, so it does not enter the sewer.

So it doesn`t stink. Because the plate is flat, the wheels of the car or motorcycle do not slip out.
