More Information on Underground Sewer Manhole Bases

*Included for sale within the categories are manhole bases, risers, lids and seals in 320mm, 450mm with 110mm and 160mm outlets.

Full range of bases, risers and lids available.

Combining flexibility with ease of installation, the Inspection Chamber Assembly includes 50kN lid, 300mm riser, 450mm dia chamber base and frame rings and chamber reducer. Providing more on site solutions the 450mm Chamber Base alternatives are available with branch sockets designed to optimise flow management, for drainage pipe layouts and 110mm pipe systems. The assembly meets the requirements of Building Regulations Part H1.

Inspection chambers may be utilised as an alternative to traditionally constructed manholes for reverse depths of up to 1.2 metres. By cutting a riser, between the ribbed sections, to the height with a fine tooth saw can easily accommodates intermediate depths

Chambers should be installed onto a base of suitable material and care ought to be taken to guarantee the bedding material is evenly compacted under the foundation so the room is fully supported. Sidefill material should extend to just below ground level and the cast iron cover and frame set in a concrete plinth.

Two sizes of manhole bases are available, one has 110mm inlets and outlets and the other has 110/160mm inlets and 160mm outlet. Both have ring seal socket connections. Jointing riser to riser, or when joining 320mm or 450mm manhole bases to a riser, the ring seal is found as opposite, in the groove. To help ease jointing it is recommended that silicone lubricant is used.

When installing a manhole base that's more than 1.2m deep the entry to the manhole base must be reduced to 320mm to prevent human entry.  Inspection and maintenance should be carried out by remotely operated equipment and the maximum depth is restricted to 4m. Human entry is only allowed when there is no other alternative.

For full details please refer to the Building Regulations (England & Wales) Approved Document H – Drainage & Waste Disposal – April 2002 or Part 3 of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004 BSEN 752

After being let down by another online supplier I decided to give Easymerchant a try based on a recommendation from a friend. I've placed several orders for twinwall drainage over the past few weeks and they have not let me down once. They always answer the phone and happy to answer any questions. Highly recommend!
