Possibly if you hear the words «pate«, «step irons» or «polypropylene manhole steps» nothing will come to your mind beyond the food for the first word, especially if you are not into the construction sector. However, it is very likely that you have ever seen some in your life without having noticed it, since its uses are innumerable. They are usually related to wells, chambers or manholes and are also known as:
- Escalines para pozos (Chile),
- Escalones para pozos (México),
- Échelons pour regards (France)
- Gradini per pozzetti (Italy)
- Steigbügel für Schächte (Germany)
Therefore, it does not matter what we call it, they are simply rungs that replace the classic ladders and steps of iron or steel very common in urban sanitation, which are gradually being replaced by its polypropylene version given the great advantages that we already discussed in another of our post.
What few people know is that IVERNA was the first company to introduce polypropylene manhole steps in Europe. With almost 30 years of experience in the construction sector, IVERNA was one of the pioneers in urban sanitation. Its ability to innovate and generate solutions for each situation has meant that the polypropylene step iron is no longer just a product exclusively used for sewage or urban sanitation. Moreover, since 1988, IVERNA has already developed more than 45 models of manhole steps to meet any type of customer needs.
