Tapered Sides and Centralised Lifting Points
Cover leaves are tapered and possess lifting points in the centre, not the corner, of the cover. This allows one person to lift and slide the cover out.
No Inherent Scrap Value
Covers are not attractive to thieves. Stolen covers mean costs of replacement and of guarding open access chambers.
Slip resistance increases throughout product life cycle as product ages.
Concrete Infill access covers have long service life when installed, providing lower total life costs for the end user.
Bespoke Sizes Available
Can be manufactured in a large size range, using cross-beams and cross-pieces to build multi-cover units.
Spring-loaded cylinder locking mechanisms can be built into the cover, allowing for the covers to be locked securely. Locking keys can be adapted to suit the end user’s needs. This prevents access to the infrastructure network below.
Badged with Customer Information
Covers can be badged with information to allow for identification by operatives.
