Features & Benefits
quick & easy assembly
STAKKAbox™ access chambers are significantly faster to install than conventional alternatives, with complete installations typically taking less than one hour, resulting in reduced labour costs. No specialist equipment or plant is required in order to install the chamber and there is no need for specialist box builders.
Cable management and steps are fitted by dropping the accessories into pre-formed pockets which allow accessories to be retrofitted after installation without requiring any mechanical fixing. Where required, ring sections can be cut to bridge over or around existing networks or obstacles. Duct entries can be cut as and where required using a hole saw mounted on a cordless drill. The chambers incorporate guides which identify drilling points to ensure correct duct spacing.
all weather construction
Unlike brick chambers where freezing temperatures can stop work, Quad can be installed in all types of weather. The traditional brick built access chambers often produce variable build quality standards resulting in frequent rejection by Openreach inspectors. The use of STAKKAbox™ Quad eliminates this issue to offer a consistent installation every time.
Access chambers are built to the required depth by adding 150 mm sections. Each ring section is castellated to positively interlock with the unit above and below. Cover options and accessories can then be added to complete the system. Each section weighs under 25kg, making it suitable for a single person to lift under manual handling guidelines. Quad can be used to retrofit chambers over a pre-existing network or to replace chambers that have been damaged or need to be enlarged.
A base can be constructed from: 50mm of dry mix concrete on 100mm of compacted Type 1; 150mm of compacted Type 1; 150mm deep concrete base (C20 or dry mix) or 50mm of ready mix concrete on 100mm of compacted Type 1.
Covers are available as Concrete Infill (B125) & Recessed (B125) and there is an option to fit a sub-security plate for added security.
How The quad Access chamber Works
STAKKAbox™ Quad comprises of lightweight 150mm deep sections which are stacked on top of a concrete or Type 1 base to build the chamber to the desired depth.
There is no requirement for a lifting plant or skilled box builders when building these chambers and where required, the rings may be cut to bridge over or around any existing networks or obstacles.
