Vario Manholes

The Vario manhole is an excellent multi-purpose solution when you require a different size or shape to the standard Kijlstra manhole.

For example:

  • Sewer and storm water pumping stations
  • Internal and external overflow manholes
  • Cellars
  • Holding tanks
  • Hydro brake manholes

Shapes and sizes:

Generally, the design of the structure can be to whatever size is required, the only limitations being dictated by transport and site itself. It is possible to connect the sections on site for a final structure that exceeds the size restrictions imposed by transportation.


Most types of pipe connections and flow control devices can be included in the design.

Engineering and calculations:

Kijlstra’s engineering team will produce designs and calculations based on drawings supplied. They will also attend site to assist with technical matters and installation during the construction period.
