The Cutty Sark, Greenwich - london

Howe Green access panels have been installed in the newly re-opened Cutty Sark visitor attraction. The world’s last surviving tea clipper was officially re-opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 25th April at its home in the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, having undergone extensive works that required almost every inch of the 143-year old vessel to be conserved.

Over fifty 7500 Series aluminium access covers with bespoke Z-section supports were made to order by Howe Green, the industry’s leading manufacturer of metal floor, ceiling and wall access covers. Ellmer Construction installed single and multipart units under a unique glass canopy designed to allow people to walk underneath Cutty Sark itself and view the elegant lines of her hull. The space and opportunity for the construction arose following an incredible feat of engineering, which saw Cutty Sark raised by 11 feet onto steel supports in order to relieve the keel of the weight of the ship and help preserve her unique shape.

Howe Green’s 7500 Series aluminium access panels were fitted into raised access flooring within the new museum facility in order to provide a route to essential ventilation ducting needed to keep air circulating in what is effectively a large void under the historic clipper. Designed for use with all types of hard floors, Howe Green 7500 Series aluminium panels sit 100% flush so as not create a trip hazard and offer proven reliability to withstand high levels of foot traffic. They are double sealed to provide a reliable and maintenance-free solution to accessing essential building services - ideal for what looks set to become one of the Capital’s most popular tourist attractions.

Each access panel from Howe Green is manufactured to client’s exact specifications. Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques and the company’s innovative approach to product design, the bespoke nature of the panels does not come with a price associated with bespoke manufacturing. Instead Howe Green is able to offer competitively priced panels, designed for exact purposes.
