Citadel is rated to Level 4 of LPS 1175, suitable for protecting Critical National Infrastructure sites. Cover security can be enhanced with a double-skin cover for additional protection during attack.
Long Life Product
Citadel covers are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461. For increased longevity and aggressive environments a superior galvanising finish can be used to give a 100 (min) or 140 (min) micron zinc coating.
Safe to Lift
Opening of cover leaves is aided by a torsion spring and a lifting handle. Covers are fitted with removable bolt-off lifting plates that allow for the cover to be moved safely and easily.
Covers are prevented from slamming shut by the presence of a safety arm with manual pull override. Access covers can also be specified with hinged fall protection safety grids.
