Composite single duct and multi span access covers and frames for use in pedestrian areas where an anti-slip, lightweight, lockable and aesthetic solution is required in environments up to B125 loading. All variants are suitable for 3 t slow moving pneumatic wheel loads, with a cover test load of 125 kN.

Features and benefits:

  • Available in solid or vented variants.
  • Lightweight and extremely strong, reducing the lifting risks to installers and inspectors.
  • Anti-slip properties in wet and dry conditions.
  • Secure and vandal resistant. The covers are lockable and cannot be removed without the correct lifting key, making unauthorized access virtually impossible.
  • Two standard lifting keys are supplied as standard, a short key for ease of inspection and a longer key which reduces the risk of operator injury.
  • Covers have a spring loaded lock which allows covers to be pushed into the frame - the lock will automatically engage, reducing the risk of covers left unlocked.
  • The composite covers will withstand test load and maximum permanent set criteria specified in BS EN 124, up to B125.
  • The clear opening width between the supporting frames is bigger 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.


Suitable for pedestrian, industrial and utilities areas such as:

  • Factories.
  • Pedestrian walkways.

Sealed assist lift options are available. Consult manufacturer for information.

Standard product features


  • Cover: Hybrid resin construction.
