PERMAFIX® Manhole Rehabilitation

PERMAFIX® Manhole Rehabilitation

PERMAFIX® Manhole Rehabilitation is a system which allows for the permanent reinstatement of manholes in roadways / carriageways which prevents subsidence, shifting or moving of covers and frames. As shown in the images, these are typical manholes that can be found throughout the country.


The PERMAFIX® System

The PERMAFIX® System, which uses mastic asphalt in the bedding and surround of the frame to finish road level, prevents shifting, sinking or collapse of the frame and cover. Traditionally cut bricks, blocks, sand and cement have been used in setting manhole frames. As illustrated by the photographs this finish has a short lifespan.
