PVC Sewer Pipe Maintenance Shafts
Aymroo are pioneers in the fabrication of PVC maintenance shafts for sewer and drainage systems. Aymroo MSs are made from moulded PVC fittings (as 1260.5:2002) and PVC pipe (as 1260.4.1999) to the Australian Maintenance Shaft Standard As\nzs 4999:2006.
Maintenance shafts will replace traditional manholes, where approved.
Both the health and safety of maintenance personnel and the high cost of construction have led Australian Water Agencies to look for safer, cheaper alternatives, eventually removing the need for human access into hazardous confined spaces.
Aymroo's maintenance shafts (MSs) have been appraised (PA 02\10) by the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) and are recommended for use as an alternative to manholes by its members and associates.
Aymroo MSs are made from PVC pipe moulded fittings using PVC welding and fibreglass techniques. The riser shaft (225mm pipe) is supplied and cut to length by the contractor and solvent welded into the socket of the Junction. The riser shaft is sealed with a 225mm PVC locking or rubber ring cap.
Socketed PVC fittings are provided for field assembly using standard solvent cement and rubber ring joints.Inlets and outlets of Aymroo MSs are supplied with solvent cement, rubber ring sockets or adapters to other materials as required. Approximate weight is 15kg depending on the configuration and excluding the riser shaft.
