SUITABILITY

The 1050 Series Floor Access Cover from Howe Green is the first choice for demanding external and internal environments subject to heavy pedestrian or vehicular traffic where the emphasis on creating an attractive public realm is at the heart of the development and easy access is required to concealed underfloor services.

External and internal areas that require a Floor Access Cover with a deeper capacity to accommodate a thicker floor covering, such as granite.

The use of support beams and cross members enables complex designs to be manufactured to accommodate situations where a non-standard access solution is required.
