    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard gives specifications for asbestos free fibre-cement manholes and inspection chambers for use in buried drains and sewers with gravity flow at atmospheric pressure. Products covered by this standard include prefabricated elements in as well as prefabricated complete manholes and inspection chambers.It specifies definitions, descriptions, composition, general appearance and finish, geometrical characteristics, mechanical characteristics, acceptance tests, type tests and quality control requirements.NOTEComplete manholes or prefabricated elements may also be used for other purposes such as pumping stations, items of drainage, items for sewage treatment or sewage disposal, when corresponding additional requirements according to the relevant European Standards are fulfilled.
