Can you really afford to build cheaply

Intelligent investment instead of expensive repairs

MORE VALUE THAT PAYS OFF IN THE END
The most cost-effective and intelligent type of chamber maintenance is prevention, i.e. avoiding damage.
According to a study by the German Institute for Underground Infrastructure (IKT) based on regional examinations, approximately 50 % of all concrete chambers already start leaking after installation. In 2004, the repair cost for Germany was estimated to be 55 billion Euro.
30–50 % of the German sewer network‘s approx. 10 million chambers require repair work (Source: DWA survey 2004).
The consequences are far-reaching: Interruptions to infrastructure caused by additional construction work, penetrating groundwater places a burden on the sewage systems. Leaking sewage pollutes the groundwater and subsiding chambers covers pose hazards that require costly repairs.
However there is an intelligent solution for all these problems: Chambers made of plastic by ROMOLD.

DURABILITY

With its lifespan of at least 100 years, the plastic chamber is far superior to traditional systems.

LOW WEIGHT

On average, plastic components only weigh around 5% of their concrete counterparts. This simplifies the whole process, i.e. the handling, transportation and installation, as no heavy lifting gear is required – an enormous benefit when working in tight spaces or on difficult terrain.

100% WATERTIGHT

ROMOLD products are absolutely watertight.
All components are inspected with respect to internal and external pressure (0.5 bar). Therefore damage caused by leaks can be ruled out.

FLEXIBILITY

ROMOLD products react flexibly to any earth movements or subsidence. Therefore cracks are ruled out.

CORROSION RESISTANCE AND H2S PROBLEM

ROMOLD chambers are particularly resistant to aggressive chemicals.
Therefore corrosion caused by hydrogen sulphide (H2S) can be ruled out in ROMOLD products. This allows sensible, durable alternative solutions. These properties are now exploited in the cladding of concrete chambers. In the case of full-wall chambers by ROMOLD, these properties are standard.

COMPATIBILITY

ROMOLD products are compatible with all common pipe systems and the speed with which they can be installed is unbeatable: place the chamber, connect the pipes, put the lid on, that´s it!

THE OVERALL PERSPECTIVE

Prefabricated ROMOLD chambers are the superior alternative to traditional chambers, both from a quality and economic point of view – with clear advantages from an overall perspective. Durability, sturdiness, no additional investment during maintenance and the reduction of time, machine and personnel costs during transportation and installation make ROMOLD products the more economic and longer-lasting solution. And everyone benefits from this because the citizens face lower charges whilst profiting from the new investments that are possible thanks to the savings made.

42 DAYS AND YOU KNOW THE SCORE

The quality inspection of the installation work (covering and compaction) is performed with lit- tle effort, about 42 Days after installation. If the components show no signs of deformation or max- imum 50% of the 50-year value, it is justified to assume that the lifespan of the construction will be reached safely without impairment. In the mean- time the principle has been recorded as criteria in the EN standard EN 13598-2.

ECONOMIC SEWER NETWORK PLANNING

ROMOLD, in its capacity as an expert manufacturer of chambers, not only supplies type DN 1000 approved manholes, and also DN 800 for occasional access (in accordance with EN 476). Furthermore DN 400, DN 500, DN 625 and smaller inspection chambers are also available. This affords you access to alternative solutions when planning the sewage network. Save costs by using different chamber diameters in your sewage network.
