Utility company assets on footpaths and highways need to be fit for intended purpose, this means that the cover and frame of any ironwork must be stable and silent when trafficked and capable of giving trouble free performance during its service life.
The position of drains, sewers and clean water service pipes to properties are critical to the service life of the installation. Water is a basic need for every household, with utility companies needing safe access to pipes. SHIMPAC® products provide compliance with statutory requirements, protecting assets from damage, whilst keeping contractors and the public safe.
Under typical conditions, the price of materials and components is dwarfed by the cost of traffic management to obtain safe access to the ironwork and reinstate surfacing. If this must be repeated because of poor workmanship on installation, these costs rise considerably. SHIMPAC® increases the whole life cost savings arising from reduced maintenance frequency i.e., less repeat visits to site. Our products offer confidence in quality workmanship with appropriate third-party certification.
SHIMPAC® products protect all street ironworks, including access covers, gully ironwork, kerb drainage, drainage channels, utility surface boxes, protection of pipes greater then 600mm diameter and retaining walls.
