7500 Series How Green floor access covers
A solution was required to provide safe, secure and easy access to building services concealed beneath the floor within an elevated concourse building at an underground station.
Over 850 Howe Green floor access covers were specially designed and manufactured, based on the 7500 Series medium-duty floor access covers. With a 69mm depth the access covers were manufactured with an extra-thick baseplate and reinforcements to meet the demands of what will be a highly trafficked area.
The products were installed by award-winning DMC Contracts Ltd, specialists in the installation of floor finishes.
The covers were infilled with two different types of flooring, dependent upon their location. The main duct run in the station concourse uses Conservation Smooth paving from Marshalls; covers in other areas of the station are infilled with Granazzo.
The 7500 Series can be also be supplied as a single cover or as a multi-part unit. The duct covers supplied for the underground station were specially made to order, however standard sizes are available from stock. Fire rating is an option with up to a 3 hour fire rating BS 476: Part 20 1987 on stainless steel single covers or 2 hours on duct and multipart covers if required. The covers can also be supplied double-sealed to meet the highest standards of hygiene and security.
The 7500 Series can withstand up to a 5 tonne pneumatic wheel loading and is resistant to rust and corrosion.
