Wide wall manhole chambers FP McCann wide wall manholes have been designed with a tongue and groove dimension to accommodate the use of bituminous sealant. An F P McCann approved sealant should be used at all times. The sealant requirement for wide wall manholes is 12mm x 120mm x 6m. When placing sealing strip into position during installation, the ends of the strips must be overlapped by a minimum of 30mm and cut at an angle of 60 degree. The cut ends must then be pressed together. Full installation guidelines can be provided upon request or found at www.fpmccann.co.uk DN 1200mm Wide Wall Manhole...
