Alternative Manhole Platform System (AMPS)
Background information on Alternative Manhole Platform Systems.
It is common knowledge within the construction industry that nearly every new drain system that is designed is done so with surface water attenuation high on the design agenda. Many designers are now experiencing massive problems when it comes to placing large diameter sewers, and even larger diameter manholes into standard road sizes. Along with the fact that many developments are designed using separate drain systems.
The placement of manholes side by side at every single change of direction, pipe size etc. is very demanding in
itself, added to this, the designer may have to make a very important decision, to improve health and safety wherever possible. This is a primary consideration in any construction activity and in particular, is vital to the CDM regulations. Designers wanting to overcome or alleviate these typical problems should simply take a look at what the Alternative Manhole Platform System (AMPS) can offer.
Cost Effective Solutions to all of the above!
The AMPS can currently be obtained in GRP. The range of sizes available are DN 1200 through to DN 3000. All
products, where applicable, are manufactured in accordance with the relevant British/European standards, with full technical support available, including a bespoke design service if and when needed.
The main advantages of using AMPS over standard construction practices are:
Considerable improvement to health and safety for operatives working in manholes because there
is a larger non-slip area to stand on and no direct access into the flow
Reduces manhole diameters for a given pipe size and therefore lowers construction costs, whilst
remaining compliant with BS EN 752-3
Removes the necessity of installing safety hand railing, again reducing costs
Offers solutions to design difficulties
The ability to afford additional laterals or branches entering the manhole
The option to afford greater accessibility for backdrop connections
Prevention of debris entering the sewer pipe and potentially causing a blockage
They are simple to assemble requiring relatively unskilled labour on site
They are environmentally friendly
