Handhole

In data centers, a handhole is a shallow metal electrical utility or pull box (also called an access or splice box) installed within a run of conduit or ducts that allows for easy access to pull in, splice and terminate wires or cables.

A handhole is a type of manhole, buried underground just deep enough so that its lid is flush with the surface of the ground; its opening is just wide enough for the insertion of one’s hand and/or arm.
