Stanton Bonna was formed in 1989 as a loint venture beiween the Concrete Division of

Stanton PlC and Bonna, the largest manufacturer of precast concrete products in Europe

The amalgamation has enabled Stanton Bonna and its customers to benefit from over 170

years combined experience in the production of high quality precast concrete products for the

sewerage and drainage markets

The centrally located complex at Stanton-byDale near Noitingham is ideally positioned to

serve UK customers quickly and efficiently and substantial investment has taken Stanton Bonna

to the forefront of concrete pipe and manhole manufacturing technology. The result is the

Vi-KingTM range renowned for the highest standards of vertically cast vibrated products.

Stanton Bonna's expertise in precast concrete products has resulted in diversification into the

power, rail and street lighting markets. The company has subsequently established market

leading positions for its concrete pressure pipe for power stations, twin block railway sleeper

for linht rnil systems, concrete street lighting columns nnrl G P sewer rpnnvntion units. R



Utilising modern computerised manufacturing equipment, Vi-KingTM pipes uriu iriuiiholes are vertically cast in steel moulds with a semidry concrete mix which is compacted by sophisticated vibration patterns. The result is consistently high quality products with sharply defined joint profiles.

All Stanton Bonna's products are available to meet classes of sulfate attack as defined in
BRE Digest 363 1996 as detailed in the table below.


Products manufactured using ordinary Portlanu ~eiiieiii BS 12 to Products manufactured using a combination of OPC to BS 12 and pulverised fuel ash to BS 3892 Part 1 . Products manufactured using sulfate resisting Portland cement to

BS 4027.

Stanton Bonna offer an extensive range of precast concrete flexible joint pipes from DN 300 to DN 1800 including bends,.junctions (see pages 8 and 9), rocker and butt pipes.

H Vi-KingTM pipes are vertically cast using vibration to

compact a semi-dry concrete mix into the mould. Spun pipes are centrifugally spun in a mould to produce a highly compacted product.

H Vi-KingTM pipes employ a unique Delta gasket which,

compared to a circular gasket, requires lower jointing forces and offers increased resistance to withdrawal after jointing.

Gaskets are manufactured in SBR or EPDM and comply with BS 2494, other types of joint gasket material (including nitrile compound) can be supplied on request.

Vi-KingTM pipes will not joint to any other cast or spun pipes.

Vi-KingTM manholes are designed and manufactured to provide accurate joint profiles with a high quality finish and when used in conjunction with 'Tokstrip' flexible jointing compound, will enable the contractor to construct watertight manholes quickly, without the need for concrete surround. 'Tokstrip' is approved for such applications by the Department of the Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food and

the use of 'Tokstrip' with precast concrete units is strongly urged on engineers in the Reports of the Working Party on the Construction and Design of Underground Pipe Sewers so that the high costs of insitu concrete surrounds can be avoided.

Product Health & Safety Data

1. P d u c t s
Precast concrete drainage units manufactured to various parts of BS 59 1 1 . Pipes and fittings for domestic and industrial sewerage, highway and agricultural drainage. Pipes for installation in trench (or by jacking) together with manholes, soakaways, slabs and road gullies. Protective gloves should be worn when handling products. Eye protection and respiratory masks to the relevant British Standards must be worn when cutting or drilling products. Care should be taken to chock pipes securely to prevent movement, particularly if products are stacked. risk of impact damage. Such dust if containing quartz and if inhaled in excessive quantities over extended periods can constitute a long-term health hazard. Products are generally cylindrical and can roll on uneven or inclined surfaces.

4. Precauiions

2. Physical and Chemical


Concrete unreinforced or reinforced with steel bars, mesh or steel cylinder. Concrete manufactured by the compaction of coarse and fine aggregates, cementitious material and water which subsequently undergo a curing process. Elastomeric sealing gaskets and cast iron steps.

5. Transport and Disposal

The transportation of these products is not subject to hazardous substance conveyance regulations and vehicle labelling is not required. The haulier is responsible for ensuring loads are secure to prevent movement in transit. Precast concrete products are inert, but should be disposed of in accordance with local legal requirements. Rubber gaskets are inflammable and if burned will give off toxic fumes.

3. Main Hazards
The principal hazards associated with these products concern handling and cutting. Concrete has a hard textured finish which may cause abrasions to the hands when handled. Excessive handling can also cause skin irritation and dermatitis. The cutting and drilling of concrete will create fine dust and can also project particles at high velocity with consequent


w w

Pipes should not be lifted by chains passed through the bore. Pipes should not be dropped or subjected to impact. Gaskets should be stored without ties and protected from sunlight, oil, grease and heat.

Deliveries are usually in 24 tonne loads. The receiver is responsible for all off loading. See pages 19 and 20 for details of the toc-King lifting and jointing system for DN 13501800 Vi-KingTM pipes.

H Use of correct off-loading equipment on

site is essential to ensure a safe operation and avoid damage to pipes.

Pipes should be stacked neatly on level ground on wooden chocks up to the height stated in the table below.

The spun pipe gasket must be positioned on the end of the spigot During jointing the pipe should be supported at its point o balance and f positioned clear of the trench bottom. Care must be taken not to displace the gasket as the spigot is entered into the socket.

Before jointing, each pipe should be examined for damage and the jointing surfaces and gasket thoroughly cleaned.

The Vi-KingTM pipe incorporates a flexible rolling gasket joint which uses the unique Delta shaped gasket.

Care must be taken to ensure the Delta gasket is positioned on the spigot end without twists. The flat face of the Delta gasket is marked with a white line.

Loc-King lifting & Jointing Systei

The Loc-King lifting and jointing

system when used in conjunction with %KingTM pipes DN1350 and above offers these major advantages:

Safe Handling
The Loc-King lifting eyes engage securely and provide a horizontal lift every time. Once engaged, the lifting eyes cannot disengage under load.

Speed Off loading, site handling and pipe

jointing with Loc-King is much faster than with traditional tackle and no weight balancing is required.

Cost Effective
Compared to traditional methods, the speed, safety and pipe laying efficiency of the Loc-King system generates savings in time, plant and labour.

1 The Chain Set .

The Loc-King system comprises lifting anchors cast into the pipe wall and a special three legged chain set (Fig. 1 J with lifting eyes which connect to the anchors for lifting and jointing operations.

2 Engoging the eye .

T engage a lifting eye with a lifting o

anchor simply place the eye opening over the anchor head and rotate the eye tail until it touches the pipe surface.

Correct engagement of the lifting eyes is essential prior to any lifting or jointing operation and the spare lifting eye should be secured to a shortening clutch to avoid accidental damage or injury.

3 Disengaging the eye .

T disengage a lifting eye, slacken the o chain set and rotate the eye tail away from the pipe surface until the eye can be lifted off the anchor head.

4 lifring and Handling

Position the crane's top guide pulley centrally between the lifting anchors and engage chain A with the socket end anchor, B with the spigot end anchor and secure C to its shortening clutch (Fig.4). During lifting the included angle between chains must not exceed 60".

General Advice
Pipes must be handled, stored and installed by persons trained in safe practices for these tasks. Chain sets are supplied having been tested in accordance with the Construction (lifting Operations) Regulations 1961. Users should have a current test certificate and certificate of examination as appropriate and should check equipment daily for obvious damage before use. If equipment is subjected to excessive shock load or abuse it should be taken out of use, reexamined and tested. Vi-KingTM junctions, bends, rocker and

5 Jointing
Lift the pipe, lower it into the trench and
enter the pipe spigot into the socket of the last laid pipe. Disengage chain A and secure to its shortening clutch. Position the crane's top guide pulley over the socket of the last laid pipe and engage chain C with the spigot end anchor (Fig.5). Take up any chain slack and continue lifting slowly to joint the pipes. Adjust the pipe to line and level and check for the recommended joint gap. Disengage the lifting eyes and repeat the lifting and jointing operations as necessary to complete the pipeline.

butt pipes require jointing by traditional

methods. Rocker and butt pipes may be lifted using the single cast in anchor.

Anchor Recesses
Before backfilling, clean and make good anchor recesses flush to the pipe barrel surface with epoxy or polyester resin or a 1 :3 cement sand mortar proportioned by mass.
