SURFACE BOX

Synthetic surface boxes

Sustainability

By means of an automated injection moulding process at the production facility of AVK Plastics, tonnes of plastics are processed into high quality surface boxes and accessories daily. Synthetic products have many advantages; they are lightweight, corrosion and maintenance free, durable and recyclable. Synthetic surface boxes are very sustainable due to the use of recycled synthetic materials.

Recycled materials are used in the AVK Plastics production process, creating products that last for decades and which can also be recycled at the end of their life. Additionally this, in turn, provides savings in cost, energy and materials. Being ISO14001 certified, AVK has committed itself to have a strong focus on continuous reduction on the environmental impact.

The carbon footprint (CO2 emission) and the energy consumption of synthetic surface boxes, measured from resource to final product, is significantly smaller compared with the surface boxes made of cast iron, making the AVK surface boxes ecologically sound.

Besides the usual assessment criteria, such as price and quality, this carbon footprint is increasingly used or required as a decision parameter, by customers who want to compare products with each other and appreciate the environmentally friendly character of synthetic surface boxes.

Why choose synthetic surface boxes?

• Lightweight, ensuring safe and easy handling in compliance with Health and Safety Regulations.
• Maintenance and corrosion free. Easy access throughout the year; no need to clean or grease seat to protect against corrosion or frost.
• Silent in traffic zones; synthetic materials absorb noises.
• 100% recyclable and significantly less use of energy resources compared to production of cast iron surface boxes.
• Various lid inscriptions/colours available.
• Heat resistant max. 250 ºC.

Height adjustable surface boxes with reinforced rim

The robust design of AVK Plastics’ height adjustable surface boxes with reinforced rim, registered by AVK, makes the surface box perfectly suitable for heavy duty application areas. The reinforced rim ensures a better support of the top part, a unique advantage compared to the traditional height adjustable surface box.
