Ductile Iron Chamber Cover, Cast Iron Drainage Covers and Grates Guide
As of the date of writing this article, the Bureau of Indian Standards does not have a separate code for Ductile Iron manhole covers. As a result, the most popular code used in India is the European EN124. Manhole covers and grates up to and including a clear opening of 1000 mm are divided into 6 load classes.
- A 15 : Capable of withstanding 15kN or 1.5MT of load. They are suitable for areas which can only be used by pedestrians and pedal cyclists.
- B 125 : Capable of withstanding 125kN or 12.5MT of load. They are ideal for pedestrian areas and comparable areas, car parks or car parking decks.
- C 250 : Capable of withstanding 250kN or 25 MT of load. The area of kerbside channels of roads which, when measured from the kerb edge, extends a maximum of 0.5 m into the carriageway and a maximum of 0.2 m into the pedestrian area.
- D 400 : Capable of withstanding 400kN or 40 MT of load. The carriageways of roads (including pedestrian streets), hard shoulders and parking areas, for all types of road vehicles.
