Communication Vaults

The communication industry is a rapidly changing technology which requires communications service providers to maintain and expand their network components to meet growing demands.Wireless, cable, satellite, broadband, and broadcast companies have come to rely on the proven performance and versatility of precast concrete structures to protect vital infrastructure components. AE Concrete manufactures communications products, including handholes, manholes, vaults, pads, trench, and more.

AE Concrete manufactures, delivers and supplies telephone junction boxes, pull vaults, and manholes to Telus Communications (BC) Inc. on a contract basis. We have many different designs and styles, including a stackable service box, 1.2 Metre Vault, 1.5 Metre Vault, Splice Box, 832 Vault and 2102 Manhole. All of these units are available with single or two piece steel lids that can be supplied with either a paint or galvanized finish. Various risers, collars, and bases are manufactured for the different styles of vaults to fulfill any needs that may arise in a particular installation. All of the vaults listed above can be modified so please contact us if the stock item does not exactly meet your requirements.

For all civic and commercial projects requiring utility and concrete vaults, AE concrete can offer quick delivery and turn around time, for a wide selection of service and utility vaults. Our vaults are specified and used by companies such as BC Hydro, Telus, Shaw, Fortis BC and the Ministry of Transportation.

A utility vault is an underground room providing access to subterranean public utility equipment, such as valves for water or natural gas pipes, or switchgear for electrical or telecommunications equipment.

Utility vaults are commonly constructed out of reinforced concrete boxes, poured concrete or brick. Small ones are usually entered through a manhole or grate on the topside. Such vaults are considered confined spaces and can be hazardous to enter. Large utility vaults are similar to mechanical or electrical rooms in design and content.
