With the help of the bubble level rule, we mark the ends where the step will be inserted, taking as reference the center of each side of the rod. Depending on the model the distance will be 300 mm, 320 mm, 330 mm, 340 mm and 380 mm, from center to center.
Repeat the process with each manhole step, leaving a recommended distance of 250 mm in between the step irons.
Once the marks have been made, we drill with a concrete or corrugated steel drill bit of 25 mm diameter to a depth of 850 mm, leaving a perfect hole for the insertable part of our manhole steps.
If these holes have not been made accurately (for example, too large) the step will not be well fixed. In this case, the hole drilled or formed, must be filled with mortar / putty or chemical plug.
We hit the rung with several firm strokes at the sweetspots. Once fixed, we will strike at the same sweetspots until the total insertion depth, so that only the rectangular or round part of the step is visible.
The ends of the anchor are round and slightly conical. They act like harpoons once placed, which ensures that the step is totally immobile.
You have your manhole step ladder ready to be used.
If the installation was correct, the rungs will withstand tensile forces greater than 800 kg!
Some Notes and Recommendations
As there may be special conditions in the installation site, unknown to us, our general instructions do not make us responsible for the final assembly of the rung.
Our PATE-SUGAR is preferably recommended for manholes, both for sewer and drainage, as for any other type of element in the urban sewage system.
The applied measures and anti-slip protections, are in agreement with the norms of security applied in all the countries. These measures also allow drilling in precast concrete surfaces, without exceeding their normal thickness.
In water collection wells, even when these steps are permanently submerged, the quality of the materials used in the manufacture of our Manhole Steps does not produce any contamination or oxidation.
The rung is mainly for use in urban sewage systems, but we manufacture other models of step irons to cover other needs such as:
Step Irons Marine Version for use in harbours, ports and nuclear power plants.
Step Irons for Vias Ferratas and climbing, specially made for outdoor use with extra ultraviolet protection.
Step Irons anchorable for any kind of surface: PVC, wood, steel, plastic, brick…
We have a total of 45 models to cover every need, so why don’t you take a look on our website and discover which is the perfect for you?
