ULTIMA Connect Access Chamber
ULTIMA Connect is the next generation in Access Chamber Systems from the STAKKABOX range of access chambers. Featuring a modular design with lightweight polymer manufactured materials, installation costs are reduced significantly compared to traditional brick type chambers.
How does it work? STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect access chambers are manufactured in 150mm deep sections that stack one on top of each other to reach the desire depth – ring section is castellated to positively interlock with the unit above and below.
The ULTIMA Connect Chamber System features a twinwall sectional design that is made up of GRP corner pieces and sidewall lengths. These parts are connected using a jointing peg to form a variety of clear opening sizes. With sidewall lengths used in conjunction with corner pieces, additional chamber sizes specified by the contractor can be made.

Features & Benefits
Variability in Size
ULTIMA Connect offers a huge range of access chamber dimensions thanks to the large number of standard sections and the variability offered by the ULTIMA Connect system.
Due to the sectional twinwall design and the GRP material, most ULTIMA Connect 150mm deep sections fall under 25kg in weight, making them suitable for a single person lift under manual handling regulations.
Flat Pack Access chamber
STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA can be shipped ‘flat packed’ to reduce shipping costs. A large chamber, as used on power stations or waste water treatment works, could be reduced to a number of pallets rather than occupying an entire truck.
Fast and Easy to Install
ULTIMA Connect chambers are significantly faster to install than conventional alternatives, with complete installations typically taking up to one hour. This results in reduced costs for the installer. Only the largest sizes in the range require specialist equipment or plant in order to install the chamber.
Flexibility in Construction
Duct entries can be quickly and safely formed on site. Overbuilding or benching is easily achieved. Fine top level adjustment is possible by horizontally cutting the top section.
ULTIMA Connect offers the ability to offset joints between sections to provide a strong brickwork effect improving side wall performance.
GRP outperforms traditional construction methods for chemical resistance during its buried life, resulting in a product that offers longer installed life.
Smooth Outer Walls
Gaps in the outer wall will negatively impact the effectiveness of compaction around the chamber. STAKKAbox™ chambers have smooth outer walls and an outer lip which keys into the backfill.
How The ULTIMA Connect Access chamber Works
ULTIMA Connect corner pieces are manufactured in left and right ‘handed’ designs, which offer the ability to offset joints between sections in order to provide a brick worked design. This offers strong sidewall performance to the installed chamber.
Jointed Pegs are inserted at each intersection to securely connect each component.
Modular & Scalable
Cubis have manufactured large bespoke chambers for a number of high-profile construction projects including power stations, sports stadiums and city centre redevelopments.
The chambers can be utilised to accommodate high voltage joints and turns, large water valves or any other utility enclosure. Each chamber is fast and easy to install, flexible to adapt in production and on site and will have a much longer life than chambers installed using traditional methods.
Access chamber Materials
Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), is a composite material, fibre-reinforced polymer made of a plastic reinforced by fine fibres made of glass.
ULTIMA Connect is constructed from the same materials as ULTIMA, and provides identical technical performance.
Vast range of sizes available to meet client requirements
ULTIMA Connect clear opening sizes are created by combining the corner pieces. This can include one or more sidewall pieces to offer a greater number of sizes.
The corner pieces are referred to by the internal length on the long side. This dimension will be 80mm shorter than the stated length as this is made up in the short length of the ‘corner piece’.
STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect is suitable for installation in environments rated to E600 under EN124.
Suitable for areas imposing high wheel loads, e.g. docks, aircraft pavements.
