Our composite covers facilitate smart pavement WiFi launch

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

smart pavementWe have recently been involved in a project with Virgin Media to help create the first ‘smart pavement’ in the UK, offering free public superfast Wi-Fi broadband services across a town.

Wi-Fi hubs were required in strategic places up and down the main street and local parks and our manhole covers were chosen to provide the necessary infrastructure.

We worked closely with Virgin Media to adapt our waterproof composite covers so that the Wi-Fi boxes could be fitted to the underside of the units, thus providing seamless connection throughout the designated area.

The Thrubeam composite covers were chosen as they provide no interference to signal, allowing wireless transmission to pass uninterrupted to the surface.
