The 0.7 cm Manhole cover thickness was meant for safety purposes. According to Nanjing News correspondent reports on Xianlin Avenue, Nanjing Xianlin University City presents a Manhole cover that is as thin as paper. The manhole cover is only 0.7 cm thick and contains different sizes of stainless steel. The cover is put on surrounding sidewalks, entry and exit points of the college where many students pass every day. The Manhole is intended to cover accidents that appear there on a daily basis and has brought many people to their senses on how terrible uncovered security issues could be as it was shown in that particular engineering experiment.
Some units of people who make covers do not know if they have to consider the security issues of an area, or they just make them for profit. Many businesses make Manhole covers that are very cheap and profit oriented. The application that is responsible for the security of many people is made with no inspection covers and with an engineering unit that is meant to save money and make a huge profit from the covers. Such types of covers are always below national standards and can hardly solve any security problem.
However, choosing the right type of covers that addresses all the security issues has been a big challenge to many regular citizens, businessmen and professionals.
This has been our major consideration when coming up with the following tips to consider when choosing more secure covers:
- Determine the carrying capacity of the covers with regard to the number of people it is intended to protect.
- Obtain a comprehensive business compliancy standard certificate, and the carrying capacity of the covers to see standards set forth for the enterprise.
- Make sure the Manhole covers have all the manufacturer’s requests and product inspection report. If the enterprise product inspection carrying capacities are lower than the relevant carrying capacity then you can be sure that the company’s products are not up to requirements.
- Determine whether the business enterprise dealing with the covers deliver product sampling. If you find out that the cover is not up to the carrying capacity requirements, then you can reinforce its fiber effects as they will work better than when reinforcing its particles. Generally, the carrying capacities of the covers are more secure when they are reinforced.
Whatever the composite covers contains, the enhanced role of the fiber content is much long lasting, have a higher carrying capacity and are more secure with fiber of the same kind and length when its different combined interface effects differ. Steel fiber cement is generally not supposed to be treated as its surface is easy to rust with cement if treated with water under aerobic conditions, and its interfacial bonding is generally not ideal; while the existing surface of the glass fibers are generally wetting agents, when used in unsaturated polyester resin; preferably a combination of interfaces. Therefore, the reinforcing material covers the analysis of the production, the content of the fibers used, the length of the fiber and has the highest bearing capacity.
