Personal Background…why I represent Turner rings
The last 12 years of my 38 years with the City of Los Angeles was as the head of the Street Maintenance Department. We paved over 200 centerline miles of
streets each year, placing nearly a million tons of asphalt. This required 1,500 manhole adjustments per year. All resurfacing was done in-house as well as
the manhole adjusting. Adjusting the frame/lid assembly was very labor-intensive and costly.
During those 12 years I introduced the Turner method of adjusting
manholes using fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene riser/adjusting rings.
The manhole frame no longer needed to be disturbed, and permanent
adjustments were made in a matter of minutes. While with the City of Los Angeles, I
adjusted nearly 17,000 manholes using Turner Riser/Adjustment Rings
without one product failure. During that time the City saved nearly four
million dollars, compared to other adjustment methods.
Turner Riser/Adjustment Rings are used all over the country, including
Canada and Hawaii. They are successfully used in all weather conditions
from New York to Minnesota, Florida to California…coast to coast. All the
telephone companies in the United States currently use Turner Riser/Adjusting Rings, and
30,000 rings are installed each year with over 500,000 currently in use.
