Specs and Techs: 200D FTTH Access Point
This specification describes the axs 200D FTTH Access Point. Also known variously as: Draw Box, Boundary Box or Hand-Hole. The unit weight is 2,31kg
The main use of the box is for applications where:
- A small footprint is required on the pavement.
- New installations.
- Limited/minimal traffic is expected.
- Tailor made entries/exits.
- More economical unit is required.
- Deeper connection (tailor made chamber).
This connection box, is made of:
- A Lid and Frame, injection-moulded using SABS grade fibre filled Polypropylene (PP) UV Stabilized.
- An extruded SABS Polyvinyl Chloride shaft (pipe section), cut to customer requirement.
As with all plastic structures, installation and backfilling of these manholes/draw-boxes both form an integral part of the structure. Bad/inadequate installation practice may lead to failure.
A stone free bedding (underlayer) of minimum 50mm is required. Quarry sand is suggested.
Backfilling (reinstatement) to paving level should be competed with stone free (-6mm) material. This should be layered 50 – 75mm
at a time, and tamped to required compaction. Stabilisation of the backfill material with the addition of 5% cement is recommended, ensuring stability of the construction/assembly.
These are small units, and mechanical tamping is not recommended.
