Stop tap chambers launched by Wrekin Products

Supplier of specialist products for the civil engineering industry Wrekin Products has launched a new range of Grade B surface boxes.

A number of surface boxes are made of plastic and are part of a four-piece chamber system involving a tap chamber base, guard tube, sleeve and surface box. However, the new product from Wrekin combines the surface box and sleeve into one unit.

The ductile iron solution is intended for use in areas that are subject to occasional vehicle access and comes in three clear opening sizes and distinctive frames, with stepped recesses.

This design feature means that many common sizes of pipe used on building projects can be accommodated – removing the need to purchase, hold stock and handle specific chamber pipe systems.

Gosia Kwapisz, Product Manager at Wrekin Products, said: “It’s become clear to us that weak plastic surface boxes are not offering the durability needed in areas exposed to vehicular traffic, which poses a health and safety risk by becoming a trip hazard to pedestrians and, in particular, to those with walking aids.

“By offering a versatile option suitable for a large variety of sites, along with being robust yet lightweight for easier installation and manual handling – specifiers, installers and communities stand to benefit from our new Grade B surface boxes.

Once installed, the surface boxes are easily accessible with a prising tool and the robust, captive hinge reduces risk of theft and allows easy access for cleaning. What’s more, the increased compatibility with wider water infrastructure means they are ideal for new and existing civil engineering projects throughout the UK and beyond.”
