Their major purpose is to guard and secure manholes so that easy and safe access is provided for underground utility maintenance, inspections, and repairs. To handle a range of applications and traffic situations, these cast iron manhole covers and frames are available in a variety of sizes and load-bearing capabilities. They are extensively utilized at airports, industrial settings, metropolitan areas, and utility installations.

These items are made in accordance with IS 1726:1991, which guarantees their safety, durability, and ability to handle a variety of pressures. Manhole coverings and frames from various manufacturers can be interchanged provided they comply with IS 1726:1991.

This helps to assure the safety and operation of the urban infrastructure systems in which they are installed. Municipalities, utility companies, and infrastructure developers may be reassured that the manhole covers and frames they integrate into their urban infrastructure are of the best caliber, guaranteeing long-term performance, durability, and safe access.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
