Vertform manhole

The Vertform System

Manhole construction made easy

Vertform is a manhole shuttering system that allows manhole multi-way connections inverts and bases to be constructed in a single operation. It’s fast, easy to use, and creates a watertight manhole with a perfect profile first time.

The system can be adapted to suit a range of requirements, including direction changes and diameter changes. 

  • Suitable for pipes 300mm – 1,800mm diameters.
  • Meets WRc approval.
  • Can be installed in as little as 45 minutes.
  • Vertform offers increased confidence in ability to meet industry standards.
  • Vertform offers lower cost benefits with reductions in construction time and skilled resource requirements.
  • Eliminates material wastage associated with current practice in manhole base construction.
  • Eliminates the need to work in confined spaces.
  • Eliminates difficult wet trades.

How does the Vertfrom manhole construction system work?

Shutter components are bolted together to form a channel between the two stub pipes. Side components are added to complete the mould. Vibrated concrete is poured around the shuttering, creating the channel and manhole base at the same time.

Features and benefits

  • Technical drawings Our trained staff will look at your technical drawings to help you work out what is needed and when.
  • Easy to use - The simplicity of this manhole construction system means that no expensive skilled labour is required.
  • Monolithic structure - Vertform allows the concrete manhole base and manhole invert to be constructed in a single operation using vibrated concrete. The resulting monolithic concrete structure is water tight, requires no granolithic benching and provides a stable concrete base for the manhole structure.
  • Perfect profile - The use of the pre-formed manhole shutter components ensures that all concrete inverts have the correct profile.
  • Consistent quality- A concrete manhole invert with a consistently high quality finish is achieved.
  • Right first time - Using Vertform allows inverts to be created 'right first time’.
  • Full instructions - Manuals and demonstrations available.
  • Short notice availability.

Andy Pickstock form JN Bentley used the Vertform system on a site in Shipley. 

 

He said: “The Vertform system was very good, quick to assemble, easy to use and produced a good quality finish. The cost of the hire was initially a concern however the savings made by using the Vertform system proved to be cost effective.”
