Surespan custom designed a hatch to provide access to a Biomass storage plant at the new Criminal Justice Centre, Northampton. The double leaf hatch – measuring 2750mm x 2900mm – is electrically operated by a key switch and has synchronised leaf operation with a safety grid. Rated to FACTA Class A pedestrian loading, it was designed with a chequerplate lid to match the surround and incorporates a rain skirt apron and Sureguard handrail system on both sides. A secondary 1000mm x 1000mm gas spring operated floor hatch was installed with a retractable hand hold and ladder for safe and easy access.
