Description

High performance single, duct and multi span access covers and frames for use in paved areas where an aesthetic finish is required in environments up to D400 loading. All variants are suitable for 11.5 t slow moving pneumatic wheel loads, with a cover test load of 400 kN.

Features and benefits:

  • Recessed covers create an aesthetic paviour infill.
  • Non-rocking, under slow moving traffic.
  • A film of graphite grease between the contact faces of the unit provides a gas and airtight seal and a watertight joint under rainwater conditions.
  • Secure and vandal resistant. The covers are lockable and cannot be removed without the correct lifting key, making unauthorized access virtually impossible.
  • Ventilated covers are available - consult manufacturer for details.
  • Pave cover keyways are closed and fitted with plastic plugs to prevent dirt ingress.
  • The covers will withstand test load and maximum permanent set criteria specified in BS EN 124, up to D400.
  • The clear opening width between the supporting frames is at least 7 mm greater than the pit/ chamber design to allow for minor deviations in pit construction dimensions.
  • Removable support beams for ease of access into the chamber area.

Applications:

Suitable for use in the following areas:

  • Urban public places.
