Civils Avoidance

Because prevention is better than cure, we recognise the importance of using state of the art techniques to clear telecommunications ducting and drainage systems without interrupting the physical infrastructure. Civils works are a necessity on some occasions, but the maintenance of an already existing cable or drainage network by utilising a civils avoidance specialist can save thousands, sometimes millions of pounds for your business.

As the pace of the telecommunications sector continues to grow, the requirement to lay more fibre optic cables to deliver faster broadband connections into people’s homes and properties speeds up, to keep abreast with the demand from the public here in the UK. It’s a skilled job to remove the silt without damaging the cable network.

When it comes to getting the job done, we go above and beyond to ensure we maintain our constantly high success rate of over 85%.

Duct & Pipe De-Silting

Getting the job done efficiently and professionally is our top priority. Our specialist jetting teams make short work of removing silt and general debris from underground bores up to and in excess of 300 metres in length. At RotaRod, we utilise the latest innovations in technology in our unique machinery set up which allow us to create specific tolerances in pressure and flow to achieve unparalleled results.

Using our advanced specialist machinery combined with the required skills and determination provides our clients with the best possible outcome. All our engineers are fully trained and accredited with new roads street works, water jetting association, confined spaces training and emergency first aid at work ensuring full compliance to client requirements.

Draw Rope Installation

We install draw rope in all ducts where possible facilitating the installation of fibre optics and cables through the newly de-silted duct quickly and effectively, saving time and considerable cost on intrusive civil excavations.

At RotaRod we use specialist jetting equipment strategically adapted to full Openreach specifications that allows us to achieve the outstanding results our clients have experienced over the years.

Gully Sucking

Many manholes and carriageway chambers remain un-opened for years and as a result are full of contaminated water and solid material making it impossible to access the underground ducts. Using specialist tanker vacuum units RotaRod can remove chambers and boxes of all contaminated water, silt and general debris to allow access into the system creating a safe working environment for all operatives working within them.

With our extensive range of fleet, the waste is removed from site and safely transported to a waste transfer station.

Jet Washing

Our expert team utilises high-quality equipment to efficiently remove dirt, grime, and stains from driveways, walkways, facades, hard-to-reach areas and more.
