An Easier Alternative to Cold Patching

Now you can smooth over those manhole risers during road construction projects in a matter of seconds. Made of tough durable rubber, these protector rings fit securely around manhole risers. They won't shift or slip. Just drop them into place and remove them by simply picking them up. You will save money, too, because the rings can be used over and over again. Easily stacked to save space. Their subtle gradient design enables motorists to drive over exposed manhole risers smoothly and safely without damaging tires or their vehicle. Manhole Protector Rings come in various sizes to accommodate different diameters of manhole risers.

MUTCD requirementsThe MUTCD requires that a manhole exposed during a milling operation be protected by a slope of asphalt if the manhole is exposed over .5".

Reusable Manhole Protector Ring is recommended to give protection to manholes exposed up to 2.5" high.
