See the new SSC flood cover in action

Our latest product addition, the new flood cover is generating significant interest from the water companies.

The reason for this is that traditional metal and concrete covers use split covers in floods. These rise in the flood, but can lodge in position which means the hole is half open and there is a risk a vehicle will run directly into the cover once the water recedes, or a pedestrian could fall into the void.

Our new innovative design ensures the hole/chamber remains covered at all times. When the flood water pressure increases the cover automatically ‘pops up’ by a maximum of 30 mm, but remains in position over the chamber. Once the water recedes, the cover drops back into the frame, eliminating the risk of a vehicle running into a raised manhole.

The flood cover can be seen in action at our new YouTube channel with a video that demonstrates just how effective it can be in dealing with flood situations.
