RB-VB VALVE BOX SERIES

Valve Boxes provide superior box strength for better valve protection
  • Wide flange with corrugated structure provides superior box strength for better valve protection.
  • Unique shovel access slot provides superior accessibility for service.
  • Made of 100% recycled materials (black boxes). HDPE.
  • Unique pipe hole knockouts provide faster and easier installation.

These features apply to the Standard, Jumbo, Super Jumbo, Maxi Jumbo, and 10” Round Valve Boxes
- Unique bolt hole knock-out design in lid keeps hazardous insect pests out of the box.
- Shovel access on body allows for easy lid removal.
- Knock-out retainers securely hold removed knock-outs above the pipe, keeping dirt out during backfill.
- Beveled lid edges help prevent damages to lids from lawn equipment.
- Interlocking bottoms allow boxes to mate securely together bottom-tobottom for deep installations.
- Lid marking area provides dedicated location for valve identification.

Are the valve box lids interchangeable?

Only within a model family, not between models. For example, the lid that fits on the Standard valve box only works on the Standard valve box or Standard extension; it does not fit the Jumbo valve box.

What are the purposes of the difference lid colors?

The different lid colors are designed to either i) blend into the environment or ii) designate a purpose. The green lids are for environmental blending and the purple lids designates non-potable water. The black lids are made from 100 percent recycled materials, making them earth-friendly and LEED compliant.

How strong are the valve boxes?

The Rain Bird valve boxes are designed for commercial applications. They are ideal for golf courses, parks, or any areas that have heavy lawn equipment. They are assessed against a rigid series of test to verify heavy loads.

Does Rain Bird offer a wiring junction box?

7” round is a more robust unit with extra strength is required.

Why does Rain Bird offer standalone lids?

If damage does occur to a valve box, it is typically the lid that gets damaged. Instead of replacing the entire valve box, a simple lid replacement is all that is needed.

Why is the purpose of the lid lip on one edge?

We call it “shovel access.” Over time, it is hard telling what might decide to make a valve box a home. The recessed lid lip allows the contractor to open the lid without having to put his/her hand down there at first. The lip also makes it easier to open lids with the fingers.

What is the purpose of the extension models?

Some valve installations are deeper than what a normal sized valve box can fit. The extensions give another 6 inches of depth to the installation. This is offered in the Standard and Jumbo models.

What about extra deep valve installations?

The Rain Bird valve boxes and be interlocked, bottom-to-bottom, in other words stacked. This configuration gives twice the depth as just the normal valve box and more depth than the extension can add. This capability is available on all the rectangle valve boxes.

Why are the valve box bodies all black?

For most installations, the boxes are installed below ground with the lids placed at finish grade. The box body is rarely seen. The other reason is that the black bodies are made from recyclable material for both cost and environmental benefits.

Traditionally, installers place bricks under the valve boxes. This is not the case with Rain Bird’s valve boxes. Why?

A wide flange at the base of most of the rectangular Rain Bird valve boxes were designed with this in mind. The broader based simplifies installation and reduces cost associated with not using those stabilizing bricks.

What is a commercial grade valve box?

There are valve boxes and there are valve boxes. For Rain Bird, quality is paramount. The valve boxes were designed with quality and durability in mind. A commercial valve box will meet the needs of commercial applications, from golf courses and parks to industrial parks and business properties. They are designed for heavy loads, namely large mowers and vehicles. Although positioned as a higher-end line of valve boxes, the prices make them attractive to residential installations. Why compromise quality when the price is similar?

I have a 7” round valve box. I need a replacement lid but Rain Bird does not offer that SKU or part number. What do I do?

At one time, we carried separately orderable lid for small round valve boxes. Few orders were received. In order to help our distributors better manage inventory, we eliminated those SKUs. The replacement process for a lid is to order the new 7” round valve box with a lid, throw away (recycle) the body, and just use the lid.

Rain Bird offers a full line of professional grade rectangle and round valve boxes. Below are the model numbers and brief descriptions of each.

How are the Rain Bird valve boxes produced?

All the models are made through a structural foam molding process. Structural foam molding has many inherit qualities including:

  • Larger part size - shot sizes up to 200 lbs
  • Durability, strength, and manufacturing efficiency
  • Dimensional accuracy over the entire production run
  • Weight reduction of up to 15% (by volume) compared to other injection molding methods
  • Superior impact resistance
  • Parts that are impervious to the elements
  • Color consistency and complete range of colors
  • Two different materials can be molded simultaneously
  • Ability to mold two colors simultaneously
  • Consistent surface finish
  • Parts are recyclable
