Show us your manhole covers.

I tend to shoot manhole covers wherever I am. Let's make this a topic for manhole covers around the world:

I am not familiar with the slang meaning of the term manhole cover, but inspection chamber cover would make it internationally less understandable. In Dutch it is called putdeksel.

in slang terms, 'manhole cover' would simply mean 'underwear'.....

Let's keep this topic about manhole covers instead of underwear. I think you should see manhole like mankind it covers both men and women.

The cover has 400KN marked on it. If that is the weight ( Kilo Newton), then two things are shocking. Firstly, for once, someone actually knows what the unit of weight and force is in the SI Metric system (which does not equal kilograms). And secondly, that is an outrageous amount of weight. Or perhaps that is how much load it can carry. What does it say before 400KN?

Anyway, here is a contribution to the subject

It is the EU standard En124 for wheel loading. That is a 40 Tonne wheel loading
Google "En124 manhole.."

The manhole covers around here get stolen from the streets for sale as scrap,
and the city has to put construction cones then replace them at taxpayer expense.

OK so first to follow pepperberry's theme and if we are talking iron, perhaps armor or chain mail could come into play

Not sure how much I will be able to contribute here, but here is one.
