- Double-locking lid
- Lids also have beveled edges that minimize the potential for damage from lawn equipment while allowing for easier hand and shovel access.
- Body is made from 100 percent recycled materials, making them earth-friendly and LEED compliant.
- Pipe-hole knockouts designed to fit with most pipe configurations are built into the sides of the valve box for easy pipe placement with little need for time-consuming, tedious cutting.

- For larger and deeper applications, valve box extension models and bottom-to-bottom stacking and interlocking capabilities provide installation flexibility.
Valve boxes shall be used as durable, rigid
enclosures for valves or other irrigation
system components requiring subsurface
protection for installation or maintenance.
The valve box shall be made of structural
foam HDPE resin that is resistant to UV light,
weather, moisture and chemical action
Valve box body shall be composed of
100% recycled HDPE.

knock-outs molded into the sides that can be
readily removed. The knock-outs shall remain
an integral part of the body unless removed

The valve box shall have a grooved feature
on one side, just below the lid at the top

the surrounding soil or after the eventual
accumulation of thatch over the valve box.
Boxes shall have a stepped feature on the
bottom that securely interlocks two boxes
together when mated bottom-to-bottom for
use in a deep installation.
Lids shall have beveled edges to minimize
potential damage from lawn equipment.
Lids shall be clearly marked with the words
“Irrigation Control Valve” molded onto the
top. Lids shall have a marking area measuring
at least 6.0" by 2.0" that is suitable for
