1700 / 1750 Series shallow frame spring assisted access cover range


In February 2015, Kier construction contacted us on behalf of South West Water with a conundrum. Kier/SWW had a list of requirements that needed to be met; they required a twin bookend hinged cover alongside a larger single hinged cover. The twin bookend hinged cover was required to allow for easy access to a ladder into the chamber, whereas the larger single cover was required to cover a screen below and needed to be large enough to be able to gain full access to it if needed. The main constraint was that a shallow framed product was needed to take account of a reduced rebate size.

Project Summary

With EJ having the UK’s largest range of access covers & drainage gratings we were able to call on the new PS1700/1750 shallow spring assisted product range to solve the problem and meet the contractors needs. With such a complex cover design it required all departments to work together from sales, design, production, through to delivery.

A site survey was carried out to ensure all requirements were accounted for and that the customer was fully aware and satisfied with the product they would be receiving. With the total specification established and agreed, AutoCAD & Autodesk Inventor drawings were created for approval.

The cover was manufactured at our fabrication shop within 5 weeks and was delivered to Kier construction a week later for installation.
