NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT USING GATIC SEWER COVERS
GATIC covers are specifically supplied to suit the EZIpit system. The EZIpit® GATIC covers are suitable for both trafficable (Class D load) and non-trafficable (Class B load) installations
The EZIpit® is a polypropylene inspection and maintenance structure (Maintenance Shaft, Maintenance Chamber or Maintenance Hole) designed for buried gravity sewer applications. It supplements IPLEX plastic pipeline systems and is used for inspecting and maintaining sewer network systems. It consists of a base, a single wall corrugated riser, a reducing cone for maintenance holes and a range of covers designed for trafficable and non-trafficable areas. The design allows safe access to the sewer from the surface.
Access Shafts, Chambers and Maintenance Holes are used (where practicable) at every:
Change of alignment
Change in the size of a sewer
In addition, they are used at specified intervals for inspection and maintenance. National Sewer Standards and Codes specify requirements for the location and spacing of Inspection Shafts and Chambers.
