HDPE Water Tanks

Multiple supplies a wide range of corrugated cylindrical vertical water tanks for above ground storage. All tanks are manufactured using the same UV stabilized material that provides a 30 year expected life span outdoors.

The tanks are seamless, therefore leak-proof and are made of food-grade polyethylene.

They are available in sizes 100 to 24,000 litres.

Inspection Chambers and Manholes

Large manholes, made up of heavy concrete rings, have been the traditional means of access for inspection and maintenance. But they’re expensive and time consuming to install. And they allow personnel access to what can be a hazardous environment. Changes in regulations now allow systems that no longer require personnel entry, making for a safer working environment. 

REMOVING THE RISKS - AND SAVING COSTS

NOW there’s a better, safer, more cost-effective way of keeping the way clear for maximum drainage flow efficiency: the Simba Tegra non-man entry inspection chamber from Wavin.

THE NEW SOLUTION

Robust, non-man access chamber to enable safe inspection and maintenance of 110mm, 160mm, 200mm, 250mm, 315mm & 400mm pipes for surface and foul water drainage.

DELIVERING THE DIFFERENCE

  • Significantly lighter than traditional concrete ring manholes
  • Easily handled on site by hand: no heavy machinery required for lifting and placing
  • Can be installed and backfilled within one day (typical concrete manhole takes up to three days): significant saving of time and costs
  • Reduced Health & Safety risks to personnel during installation and service
  • Prevents personnel access to a potentially hazardous environment: pipe inspection and maintenance carried out from ground level
  • Moveable Sockets allow up to 7.5° pipe movement in any direction: extra flexibility for successful, secure connection to pipe line and level

Metallic Manhole Covers

Multiple Industries supplies metallic manhole covers manufactured to European Union Standard EN 124. Products designed to BS EN 124 are grouped and classified depending on their place of installation.

It is the responsibility of the engineer to ensure that the correct product is specified. The appropriate class of manhole top to be used depends upon the place of installation. The selection of the appropriate class is the responsibility of the designer. Where there is any doubt, the stronger class should be selected.
