Extension / Soil-Fixing Equipment

Extension
Extension

Being scarce of water is always a serious problem in Africa. So it is important to use fully the underground water. But the danger during digging limits the utility of the underground water to some extent, because the soil on the sidewall also gets loose and causes a landslide. The “extension” can solve this problem effectively. It is a net structure made of elastic steel. It can be stretched tightly on the sidewall after being extended in order to prevent the soil from falling. This can also protect the workers. The “extension” is compressed in a small elliptic shell. The net structure can be released when we press the button on the shell.
