Features & Benefits
Access chamber covers have security options, which can be added with the use of a standard feature such as a spring bar, captive hinge, factory fitted security bolts and screws; or by providing the facility to enable a locking kit to be fitted retrospectively.
Access Cover For Safety
The development of a comprehensive range of hinged access covers and gully grates, helps minimise the risk of injury through static lifting of ironwork.
Cubis access covers have long lifespans, reducing costs for replacements by the end user. Optimum performance is ensured through the seating contact areas, the thickness of the frame and controlled manufacturing tolerances.

This combination of material properties allows the design and production of many innovative features as well as making significant weight savings that could not be achieved with less sophisticated materials.
Access covers meet the requirements of the European Standard BS EN 124.
