Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / aircraft refuelling equipment
English term or phrase: igloo
This is from an Health & SAfety video for people refuelling aircraft and explains how to lift/move the "igloo" and other items such as step ladders without injuring your back. Unfortunately, the igloo is only shown for about 3 seconds but appears to be an igloo shaped metal grid/hood-type object that could be placed over opened hydrant pits etc - again, I'm not sure as its purpose is not really shown. Many thanks for your help.
