Pipeline Access

Integral, Prefabricated Access Units

Access The Future…Today

An innovative range of Access Units developed to simplify the method of incorporating access into large diameter pipelines, radically accelerating the process of pipe installation and significantly improving site safety.

Large Diameter Pipeline Access, Redefined

Making cumbersome, conventional concrete manholes a thing of the past

Rapid Installation

Routinely installed within an hour compared to several days for a conventional large manhole.

Small Footprint

Minimal footprint in new estate roads, and particularly in existing roads where other utilities may be present.

Long-Term Performance

High quality materials provide excellent long-term performance, consistent with CSR Pipes.

Reduced Programme

Average saving of 3 days per manhole, offering the potential to take weeks off programme time.

Enhanced Safety

Much safer construction procedure – also enabling deep excavations to be backfilled immediately.
