Polycast 500 Installation ChairInstallation Chair

Installation chairs are the most efficient and economical means of setting a precast trench system.  The installation chair supports the ends of the channel, aligns and locks the joints rigidly together, and prevents the channels from floating.  Adjusting channel elevation is easy.  One chair is required for every joint.  The chair is made from 1018 hot rolled steel and has a zinc plated finish.
