The basic technology behind a manhole frame and cover has remained unchanged for quite a few generations. Saint Gobain is looking to make a few much-needed changes to that dated standard in the US.
The 2015 Tri-State Seminar opens next week at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas and Famcon will be there to debut the brand new 32" Pamtight manhole cover.
With 90,000lbs of load bearing durability for only 60lbs of cover weight, the all new Rexus II is the next evolution of the municipal manhole cover.
Two Florida municipalities — Orlando and St. Cloud — have changed their specifications to PAMREX manhole covers for their sewer systems. All new installations will incorporate the PAMREX covers. For Orlando, this specification change also includes stormwater manholes.
The Public Works Department began specifying PAMREX manhole covers for all new construction in 2004, and has been replacing existing covers with PAMREX units on an ongoing basis. And it all started with a single unit.
