Telecom Access Chambers
We offer two types of chamber to accompany our range of telecom covers; modular plastic chambers and precast concrete chambers. Each has it’s advantages depending on the project requirements for example, modular plastic chambers are ideal for footway chambers on long runs of duct because they are lightweight and easy for the cable gangs to handle whereas precast concrete chambers are more suitable to carriageway applications where added strength is needed.
For modular plastic chambers we work with Cubis Industries to offer the market leading Stakkabox range which incorporates the Quadbox, Fortress and Ultima access chambers. Each product in the Cubis access chamber range has it owns advantages and key features which the different network providers have built in to their specifications so for example, the only BT approved access chamber is the Quadbox whereas Virgin Media access chambers also include the MONObox. Our sales team are fully aware of each network providers specification so can guide customers accordingly.
Carriageway access chambers can be made from plastic and achieve E600 loading however, some clients still insist on concrete highway access chambers being used in fast moving and heavy load bearing environments. Our partnership with Kijlstra means we are able offer precast concrete chambers and manhole cover slabs to meet with any weight loading up to and including F900. Concrete chambers are cast off site and we can deliver a complete preassembled chamber straight to site complete with cable management furniture and the relevant manhole cover already cast in to the cover slab. The contractor then just has to lower the manhole system in to place.
