CPM is able to offer precast concrete chamber rings in BIM (Building Information Modelling) which is now a requirement for all government construction projects.
For safety reasons, all chamber sections are loaded and delivered chimney fashion, when offloaded they should never be stored on their side (on the roll), but should always be laid flat.
Lorries with crane offload facilities are available for manhole units up to and including DN3000, upon request. Suitable lifting bolts for offloading and handling purposes can be purchased from CPM and come with appropriate test certificate.
Designers and users should ensure that they have taken into account the current requirements for manhole access as detailed in the Health and Safety Code of Practice, Regulations and Guidance issued by the Health and Safety Executive under the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 and other relevant requirements.
Recommended minimum chamber diameters to suit pipe sizes.
