HOTEL DU VIN - CAMBRIDGE

For residents and non-residents alike, Hotel du Vin's French Bistro is one of Cambridge's culinary focal points. Proudly showcasing the hotel chain's first open view style kitchen, it was paramount that essential services were hidden from public view.
The ideal solution was to specify nine aluminium floor access covers from Howe Green's 5000 series. Blending seamlessly, yet offering easy and instant access for vital maintenance, the floor covers can be fitted quickly and unobtrusively into all types of hard floor finish. Fitting perfectly flush with their surroundings, they avoid distortion and prevent any disastrous slips or trips – vitally important with the heavy pedestrian traffic and potential dangers of a busy kitchen.

With such impeccable credentials and offering unrivalled performance, the access panels were an ideal match for Hotel du Vin's Cambridge venue, the ninth in its UK chain.

Performance
The covers are double-sealed to meet the highest standards of hygiene and security and, using Howe Green's patented system, can be manufactured to a range of bespoke sizes and dimensions at no extra cost.

The 5000 series access covers can be fitted into all types of hard floor finishes,enabling easy access to key services such as electrics, plumbing, etc. They also have no fasteners to rust or break, so remain corrosion and maintenance-free over their lifetime. Each cover is available with a choice of aluminium, stainless steel or brass show edge and matching lifting blocks, or with Colouredge high impact PVC edges with aluminium lifting blocks and with a 1 hour fire rating to BS476:Part 20:1987.

Installation
In the hotbed of a busy kitchen, the floors at Hotel du Vin demanded a solution that minimised the risk of slip or trip hazards. Fitting flush to the floor, the 5000 series access panels are perfectly suited to the kitchen's harsh demands.

Designed to be functional yet unobtrusive, they blend near seamlessly with the kitchen's unique ambience, thus not distracting the eye of the viewing public. Yet, they still offer easy and instant access for vital service maintenance.
