AMERICAN D'BOX SEALS

For standard installation instructions, reference the distribution box installation instruction sheet. Due to the unique twice lock seal design, the seals may be easily adapted for increased head installations. Simply apply a mastic sealing compound to the surface of the seals. The normal turn and lock procedure to install the seal will provide enhanced sealing conditions.

For smooth walled installation with increased head, select the proper seals for the box configuration. Place a bead of asphalt-based sealant where the seal lip contacts the box. Insert seals in box, turn and lock each seal.

For corrugated pipe installation with increased head, select the proper seals for the box configuration. Place a bead of asphalt-based sealant where the seal lip contacts the box. Insert seals in box, turn and lock each seal. Cut corrugated pipe to receive dial-a-flow. Compress first three corrugations of pipe and insert pipe into box seal. Lock pipe in seal at first corrugation. Expand pipe again to original shape. Place a bead of sealant around the pipe and seal connection and wipe around pipe w/ finger.
