Manholes; we’re all pretty familiar with the metal coverings that appear on our streets every day. We often neglect to look at them as the cast iron covers can tend to be a bit plain, and well, boring! These are the types you’ll probably find on most streets in the UK;

Not too exciting to look at! Manhole covers tend to be something we over look as they are simply made to be functional. They’re used by us at Metro Rod and across the drainage industry as access routes into the drainage and sewer systems below. Should our engineers to access these drainage pipes, manholes are lifted using specialist ‘keys’ so we can use High-Pressured Jetting equipment or rods to unblock them. You may even find an engineer needs to be lowered into one on occasion using specialist Confined Space equipment!

We come across manholes daily. From small domestic properties to large businesses, they really are everywhere. And I’m sure we all played the ‘three grids’ game as children. (Don’t walk on three grids, it’s bad luck! Whoever came up with that idea?!)

However, upon scrolling through Pinterest one evening, we happened across some pieces of artwork from Japan. But these are no ordinary pieces of art. These are manhole covers!

We think there should be more manhole covers like this in the UK! Whilst we’ve heard of intricately designed covers in our nation’s capital and big cities such as these ones;
