Vaults / Vault Lid Options

Hybrid HDPE Vaults


Connect’s HDPE (plastic) hybrid vaults from Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions’ Carson® line provide the infrastructure needed for FTTx projects and other applications. The flared "bell shaped" design maximizes internal volume and allows for more working space for splicing and/or cable storage with a smaller surface footprint. They have a reinforced sidewall design that eliminates sidewall flex to ensure cover/body integrity. As well, there are a number of bridge truss’ added to sections as required to maximize strength. They are easy to install and provide strong, durable, chemical and water resistant performance.
