Meter Vaults

Precast meter vaults offer a number of advantages when compared to devices built in the field. Precast meter vaults offer a watertight underground precast reinforced concrete vault that protects expensive hardware components. All pipe inlets and outlets feature watertight rubber boots that exceed ASTM C923 standards. Doors are placed in the top of the vaults to allow easy access in the vault – these include 36” x 36”, 48” x 72”, and custom sized doors. The vaults can also be designed so the entire concrete lid can be lifted off using a backhoe.

The watertight vault with its access door creates an optimal working environment and eases future testing, calibration, and maintenance of components. Devices assembled in the field offer none of these protections and testing, calibration, and maintenance can be a muddy nightmare! Inlets and outlets of preassembled meter vaults are accurately placed to job specifications – the difficulties of accurately cutting, threading, and assembling components in the field are virtually eliminated.

Finally, traditional field manufacture and assembly of components is both labor intensive and expensive. Preassembly of meter vault components in a shop environment with the vast array of tools available is much more efficient, bringing the best value solution to contractors and utilities.
