Safe Manhole Lid / Safe Manhole Lid

Safe Manhole Lid
Safe Manhole Lid

When the city is inundated by the flood, there can be various accidents happening due to hardly noticeable manholes. To avoid such accidents, we created “Safe Manhole Lid”.
“Safe Manhole Lid” can be placed over the manhole. Usually, it will be placed over the manhole in a way that it won’t obstruct the pedestrians. If the water floods, Plastic Air ball will float over the surface of the water and it will lift the upper lid to display the Safe Sign. Pedestrians will be warned by the Safe Sign so that despite the flood, he/she can easily notice the location of the manhole.
