Our products are locally manufactured to internationally recognised standards using the latest technology available to ensure strong, durable products that are fit-for-purpose.


Flo-Tek’s manhole/inspection chambers are made of virgin UV stabilised polyethylene (PE) material and are intended for use in underground drainage and sewerage systems. These products are designed according to the latest ISO standards 13272:2011 with technology partners from Europe.

PE manholes have a proven long-term record in Europe and other countries and have many advantages over concrete manholes. Flo-Tek manholes and inspection chambers are suitable for installations within and outside roadways. The manholes and chambers are extremely durable with life expectancy well over 50 years of being used in challenging site conditions ranging from industrial waste, acidic conditions, heavy vehicular loads and high water tables.
