In Normal Other Covers Water Entry & Slight Bend :

In normal covers after few months , a slight (invisible) bend develops, which results in water settling on the cover itself. It will enlarge the gap between the plate and the frame which will result water entry into the tank /manhole pit.

SAFETY CHALLENGES :

Other existing covers are not exclusively designed for retail outlets hence lot of safety challenges!

a) Site users (customers) to be warned about opened manhole pit to prevent unnecessary accidents and vehicle fall & damage. (Even then near miss incidents keep happening at the sites)

b) In normal covers the cover can be removed by anyone i.e. Unauthorized opening using lifting hook, and there are cases in fuel stations where the covers are purposely stolen frequently.

Quality assurance.No quality controll.Locally Fabricated. Variation in the quality. Since each welding shops near each site leading to variation in size, quality of material, strength and life of the covers. Manufactured under strict quality control wrt dimensions, raw materials and fabricating procedure.
Tank SafetyDue to to damage to manhole covers(both structural and water ingress) the equipments inside the manhole chamber like Electronic level gauges, valves are damaged and this leads to stoppage of fuelling from the tank as well as costly repairs and replacements. Water proof, structurally strong so internal equipments are safe.
Quality assurance for thEntry of water in to the Under ground tanks is a frequent occurrence during monsoons and this leads to costly maintenance on the equipments as well as compromise in the quality of the fuel.* No such possibility due to the design of our manhole cover.
Ease of use
