Concrete Inspection Chambers

We supply a wide range of competitively priced concrete inspections to suit your needs and budget.

Our precast concrete inspection chambers offer you the ability to inspect and work on sections of underground pipe without having to dig them up – and by installing them at regular intervals, you can use them to monitor and maintain an entire network of subterranean pipes.

What is an inspection chamber?

Inspection chambers enable your drains to be cleaned on a regular basis, essentially preventing the formation of blockages. The drain inspection chamber is also designed to make it easier to assess the underground drainage network, whether it is to clean or clear a blockage or simply an inspection to make sure that it’s performing efficiently.
Inspection chambers are an important addition to any drainage system, whether it is newly built or a refurbishment. They provide access points to the drainage system – allowing for important work to be done, as well as inspections.

Our drain inspection chamber is economically designed to suit you, providing you with a reliable method for assessing the functionality of your drainage system and are perfectly paired with a manhole cover to ensure the best fit for you.

How does it work?

The base of these concrete inspection chambers is moulded to hold the drainage pipes in place, securing them to inlets and outlets whilst the risers sit above the base. More risers can be added to the base and the cover and frame will sit at ground level, on top of the last riser.

Why use a concrete inspection chamber?

A precast concrete inspection chamber offers you the ability to inspect and work on sections of underground pipe without having to dig them up – and by installing them at regular intervals, you can use them to monitor and maintain an entire network of subterranean pipes.

Concrete Inspection chambers are often provided precast, so all you need to do is install them into the ground and into your piping system. This is best accomplished with a new pipeline, before everything else has been installed and used, but it is possible with an existing pipeline. The precast sections of concrete fit together the same way that a manhole ring would fit together, with a groove-and-tongue joint and can be sealed with either concrete mortar or a bitumen sealant to render it completely waterproof.
