PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Plastic Step is injection moulded in virgin, high grade, high intensity, polypropylene.
It is free of corrodible steel, is resistant to chemicals and sewerage as listed in table 3, in
BS 8301 AMD5904 September 1998. It is also immune to sea water. A chemical
resistance report is available on request.

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

The Plastic Step is an injection moulded, high grade, high density, polypropylene
manhole step. It has outstanding mechanical and impact strength and a high degree of
rigidity. The step exhibits good anti-static properties, as well as excellent chemical
resistance.

SAFETY

The Plastic Step has a non-slip tread surface with safety lugs. It is anti-static.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

The Plastic Step has been tested in accordance with British Standards BS. 1247 Part 2
1990 specification for plastics encapsulated manhole steps and SABS 0157. 

METHOD OF INSTALLATION

The Plastic Step is ideally suited to all types of environments where corrosion presents a
problem such as concrete and brick sewers, storm water manholes, reservoirs,
concrete/fibre cement tanks, ship/yacht basins, swimming pools and mine shafts. A
permanent and water tight seal is produced when the step is correctly installed in a
sound substratum.

Drill or perform 25mm parallel holes to a depth of 50mm into sound concrete/fibre
cement, brick or substratum and simply drive the Plastic Step into full depth with a 4-
pound hammer.

OR
Vibrate or hammer into green (wet) concrete

OR

Build into a brick wall between joints
For mechanically drilled holes, we recommend that an epoxy is used to assist in
anchoring the step into position.
