“They do not fail; we’ll never stop using them!”

Ernie Nelson
Transportation Operations Chief

Safety Ramps

“They’re so much cleaner and easier to use, with some ‘green gains’ as well. If I had my preference, we’d spec them for everything.”

Pivoted Turnbuckle Manhole Riser

“I don’t believe there’s a better product for the cost. If they’re adjusted properly and set tight, they’re going to ride just perfect.”

Manhole Safety Ramps

“I gave them to our crews, and they worked well right away—they’re the correct slope and meet NCDOT requirements, and they could hardly be easier to have on site and apply.”

Bailey Watkins

Raleigh, North Carolina

Pivoted Turnbuckle Manhole Riser

“Our crews like them, and I think they’re safer. Just twist one turnbuckle and you’re done.”

J.T. Hutchinson
Utilities System Crew Chief
Loudoun County, Virginia

Pivoted Turnbuckle Manhole Riser

“They’re simple to install, cost-effective, and the height adjustments work really well for us. It’s very unusual to lose one to a snowplow. This style of riser really is a cold weather solution!”

Lee Anderson
Public Works Supervisor
Fargo, North Dakota

Catch Basin / Inlet Riser

“We use a two-man crew, plus two flaggers, and the whole process — removing the grate, cleaning the rim, and setting the riser — takes about 15 minutes. On some projects we’ve set up to 40 per day.”
