Howe Green launches a new Galvanised Steel Floor Access Cover range galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 and FACTA A - D rated.
One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of floor access solutions, Howe Green, has expanded its portfolio of access solutions with the launch of its new Galvanised Steel Floor Access Covers, which deliver first class performance and attractive affordability.
Galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461, the range includes three configurations of floor access covers, which support fast and safe installation manufactured in single, Duct Run or Multipart configurations with bespoke shapes available on request to meet each project’s unique requirements.
Each model within the new range is FACTA A - D rated, withstanding forces of up to 108kN or 11 tonnes, such as those found at heavy duty plant areas and service roads making the range suitable for internal and external applications. Higher FACTA ratings can be also be manufactured on request through additional reinforcement in the support structure.
Chris George, Business Development Manager for Howe Green, said: “The launch of our new Galvanised range represents our commitment to providing construction professionals with the highest quality access solutions, now at an even more affordable cost.”
Each product range has a maximum clear opening of 900 x 900 mm, a minimum clear opening of 300 x 300 mm and an outer frame maximum of 1100 x 1000 mm. The 7500 galvanised Series offers a maximum stone depth of 55mm, whilst the 1050 galvanised Series features a stone depth of up to 85mm.
Howe Green’s team of engineering experts can also design and manufacture deeper recesses and bespoke shapes upon request, to meet the most demanding site requirements. As an official Made In Britain manufacturer, every Howe Green product is designed and manufactured at its UK site in Hertfordshire.
The Galvanised 1050 Series and 7500 Series’ crown vapour seal protects against dirt ingress and the EDPM construction acts as a barrier to reduce the flow of water within the unit.
Lifting points are available either at the corners or inset and are available with UKPN lifting keyholes, certification pending.
Chris George continued: “At Howe Green, we continually invest in our products and manufacturing capabilities to ensure we offer every client the most suitable access solution for every installation. This new range represents our continuous investment in product development to further our commitment to ensure we provide specifiers and contractors with the widest choice of safe, secure and resilient access solutions.”
Howe Green’s extensive portfolio of products are installed throughout some of the UK’s highest profile construction projects for the healthcare, education and transport sectors.
This includes the creation of bespoke Floor Access Covers for the iconic Roman Baths and Southmead Hospital, whilst also developing unique Tree Pit Access Covers as part of the development of Heathrow Terminal 5.
