New antitheft system designed to secure any manhole cover, thanks to its geometry and availability of diameters and qualities. It is a patented and innovative product that is being installed in many places including USA and some European countries. Nuclear power plants such as ASCO, BANDELLOS, Almaraz Cáceres and Trillo in Madrid as well as several city councils rely on Fundilock to tackle the security problem that exists with the theft of caps and what they protect, such as wiring, optic fiber, etc.
We can also manufacture unique wrenches and screws for orders greater than 1000 units, in this way we make sure to have a unique system of wrench and screw, so that the designs are changed by countries and communities.
We currently manufacture Fundilock in 3 ranges for dry or tender bonding.
- Increase security against copper cable theft and telkom cable theft.
- Minimizes the sound of the covers against the frame during the passage of vehicles.
- Prevents unauthorized access to the sewer, increasing security against possible terrorist attacks.
- Avoid accidents to people, animals or cars caused by stolen tops on the road.
- Protects street furniture such as lampposts, benches, etc.
- Protects electrical panels and counters.
- Protect boxes: telecommunications, electricity and sanitation.
- Protects manholes and wells.
1 – We chose the size of washer suitable for installation. It has to be large enough to cover the frame and part of the lid that we want to protect. Available sizes (70mm, 100mm, 130mm and 150mm)
2 – We choose the protection level of our kit, either high level (key and screw with 3 lugs) or higher (wrench and water drop screw). Eg For this installation we will choose water drop key kit of 100mm polypropylene with stainless steel core.
3 – We look for the flattest area next to the lid and mark where we will make the installation holes, in such a way that we save the frame and block the maximum possible surface of the manhole cover. In this case we make the mark at 50mm from the point to be protected.
4 – Drill vertically, first with a drill bit of 12mm to 100mm deep. Subsequently, we increase the hole with a 25mm drill bit for concrete.
5 – We vacuum the dust produced during drilling to clean the hole.
6 – Fill the hole with bonding material (chemical block, chemical blister or cement for anchors like sikadur).
7 – Insert the 12mm wide x 80mm long Fundilock union plug into the hole and press it so that it is incarcerated until it reaches a perfect leveling with the cover. Then, wait for it to set.
8 – Place the neoprene washer and just above the polypropylene Fundilock washer, both aligned with the already set union plug. Take into account that the union plug is composed of a threaded rod welded to a socket that allows an insertion up to 25mm.
9 – Cut the safety screw enough with an emery stone so that it is inserted into the socket approximately 20mm – 25mm. Take into account 5mm of extra thickness of the washer. In this case we cut to 30mm from the bottom head of the screw.
10 – Once we have the cut screw, we place it on top of the Fundilock washer that we already had aligned with the inserted union plug. We will take the special water drop key in this case to perform the tightening.
11 – To tighten we can use both a wrench or a torque wrench. It is recommended a tightening torque of 44Nm.
12 – Finally we have our Fundilock installed!
