Selling Point(s)
The weeds which grow between the edge of the road and the footpath spoil the scenery of a town and reduce the width of footpaths.
The unique design of Minami's "Grass stopping blocks" markedly inhibit the spread of weeds and therefore, without question, improves the look of footpaths and have gained popularity with pedestrians.
People-friendly blocks for a new generation.
Grass-stopping blocks are designed to be used at the junction between asphalt and footpaths and have a key-like foot which stretches under the asphalt. The width of the junction is increased and the heat from the sun markedly inhibits the growth of weeds.

For use on slopes and with guard pipes(Diameter 60.5mm,76.3mm)
Selling Point(s)
Up to now the posts of guard rails have been a problem while cutting grass as the blade of grass cutters scrape against them, making dangerous for operators. However, by placing Minami Kokomo around the posts they act as hazard prevention and it is possible to complete grass cutting safely.
To prevent grass cutters from scraping the posts, Minami Kokomo are tapered and as they are made in two halves they are simple to install on existing guard rails.
The durability of Minami Kokomo is also unrivaled and they contribute to cost reduction.

Selling Point(s)
Up to now wire etc. has been used for the purpose of suspension which is not only time consuming, but also very dangerous. Our product however uses the principles of gravity and levers in a practical way and has the capability of suspending heavy objects safely.
Furthermore, the mounting process is fully automated, with heavy objects being raised in an instant and mounting only taking 2 or 3 seconds with next to no chance of failure. The machinery is aimed at 7 different types of hanging loads and can also be used for lifting, especially as a hoist, or ceiling crane etc. and is excellent for use inside factories.
