Instarmac completes first manhole reinstatement in North America

Instarmac Group plc are pleased to announce that, earlier this year, they installed their first manhole cover in Canada using their HAPAS Approved Manhole Installation System.

Carried out in conjunction with the Region of Peel, the reinstatement was completed quickly with minimal disruption to motorists and in temperatures above 95ºF.

Made of up high performance bedding mortars, back fill concretes, cold lay asphalts and overbanding, Instarmac’s Manhole Installation System has been independently tested and approved by the Highways Authority Product Approval Scheme for over 10 years and is proven to offer a first time permanent reinstatement. It even provides a permanent repair in all weathers and climates including freezing temperatures and extremely hot weather – ideal for countries with changeable weather patterns.

Ironwork reinstated with Instarmac’s system is opened to traffic in as little as 1 hour minimising disruption to motorists and eradicating lengthy lane closures. What’s more, Instarmac’s Manhole Installation System boasts a service life of over 5 years, eliminating costly repeat visits to the same site.

The Region of Peel were so impressed with the performance and speed of Envirobed HA104® high performance bedding mortar that they have confirmed with Instarmac’s Canadian partner, Da-Lee, this material will be used on a number of other problematic manhole covers throughout the area.

Instarmac’s Manhole Installation System is made up of Envirobed HA104® high performance bedding mortar, M60 rapid strength bedding mortar, PY4 polyester resin system, QC10 F rapid set flowable concrete, Instant Road Repair cold lay asphalt, SCJ seal and tack coat spray and Instaband ECO thermoplastic overbanding tape.
