Bedding mortars for fixing manhole frames in highways

Fast setting / curing mortars with high early strength gain for quick re-opening


Arcon stock a broad range of mortars to bed inspection chambers, manholes, surface water grids / drain gully grates, foul water / sewerage  covers, aco drainage channels, slot drains, meter box covers, tree pit covers, benches, bollards and other ironwork. From installation in extremely heavily trafficked roads / motorways (highways) to pavements and parks, there are high strength mortars designed to bed ironwork firmly, securely and permanently. Intensity of traffic, if HAPAS Approval is required, weather conditions / air temperatures, speed of cure required etc. will all determine the best mortar for your project. Cement based, polyester resin and epoxy resin based mortars all feature in our range of ironwork bedding materials. Call us for specification advice on 01925 85 2225.
