A Handhole is an especially designed container with a dual-skinned casing and a dual-skinned lid. Handholes are used as a casing for underground fiber routing. In the handhole a closure and/or extra cable-length with a maximum bending radius of 275 mm, can be stored. This casing serves as a mechanical protection of the cable and the closure, and also provides good accessibility of the closure for future splice-extensions. Infraconcepts supplies Handholes in various shapes and models and loves to advise you on the most suitable Handholes for your project.
Since Handholes are placed underground, it is important they are of a robust quality. Handholes with plastic enforcement ribs and a steel support frame are suitable for installation on locations according to the European Standard EN 124 groups 1, 2, and 3. To support the standard, the Handhole has to be placed at least 500 mm under the surface.
Since the application may vary per project, various types of handholes are on the market (see pictures). Below you’ll find a summary of the options:
