STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect chambers used by AEP in France for greater speed of implementation and optimized logistics.
Case Study Details
Limours (91), France
Cubis’ French team and distribution partner Hydroméca recently supplied a large 3200mm x 1200mm x 1800mm ULTIMA Connect chamber with AX-S™ composite cover system for a new residential area in Limours. The chamber is being used to house a new water hydraulic valve with remote meter reading capabilities.
The installed ULTIMA Connect modular chamber was chosen due to being lightweight, easy to install and flat packed delivery. The chamber, composite covers, and accessories were delivered on Euro pallets and ready for on-site assembly.
Prior to the installation, specification notes were supplied to highlight the mechanical performance of the chambers and provide technical recommendations to facilitate the installation process that would follow. The customer also utilised Cubis’ free BIM catalogue to integrate products into their digital models.
- Flat pack delivery: Reduced delivery requirements, unloading equipment and ease of handling components at remote site locations.
- Optimal safety: Lightweight products and reduced risk from heavy alternatives ensure safety requirements for installation teams.
- Rapid response: Reduced lead time, from 1 week upon receipt of standard order the chamber system was installed on-site.
- Speed of installation: 12 ring sections of the chamber were assembled in less than 2 hours.
Long-Term Client Advantages
