Buy 160mm Soil Access Caps Online
Use this 160mm access fitting to push into a socket of another fitting (such as a triple socket junction) to allow access for maintenance.
Why do you need soil access?
In many cases, access to a soil stack is vital. The problem is, it’s not always viable to replace an existing push-fit soil fittings with a dedicated access section. Access points do away with this need by converting an unused socket in the stack – creating an access point for rodding or testing wherever needed.
British Standards and Building Regulations
We understand how important it is to be confident that you’re using high-quality materials to put together a soil system – and that’s why our 160mm soil access points are manufactured to strict British Standards.
As well as being confident that you’re in line with manufacturing standards, access points also give you peace of mind when it comes to building regulations. In commercial and industrial premises, there should be an access point for the soil stack on each floor – so and push fit fitting makes it simple to stay compliant.
As with other push fit components, fitting an access point to a soil system couldn’t be easier. If the socket you’re working with is currently blanked off or connected to another run, simply remove the cap or connection – then push the access plug into the ring seal fitting.
Manufacturing tolerances sometimes make for a tight fit – so if this is the case, some silicone lubricant around the access point means it will glide into place.
Opening the cap
When the time comes to open the cap for either rodding or testing – the watertight cap screws off by hand.
