Access Covers

With a large range of access covers to compliment our access chamber systems, individual needs can be met with a bespoke cable protection combination.

Solid Top covers are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461. 

How do access covers work? Cubis access covers are used in combination with access chamber systems to protect the infrastructure networks below. Steel covers are designed by an in-house team using the latest technology, where parts can be tested using Finite Element Analysis software to understand how the products perform under load. Solid Top access covers are fitted into a rebate so that the top of the cover is finished flush with the ground level, and can be trafficked in areas with slow moving traffic (under 20mph).

Features & Benefits

Bespoke Sizes

Steel Fabricated access chambers can be created in a variety of sizes to help meet customer needs. Cubis can assist at all stages of a project, with a bespoke access chamber combination, from site survey to installation guidance to provide the best solution for the project.

Bespoke Identity

Covers can be badged with bespoke information to enable easy identification by operatives.

Access Cover For Safety

When it comes to keeping infrastructures safe, solid top access covers are a perfect solution. Covers are optimised for safety during use with a safety stay that prevents the cover leaf from slamming shut when in use. Cubis has designed a number of fall-protection options including; Hinged, Drop-in and Split systems. Safety grids can be fitted with a failsafe lock back catch.

Safe to Lift Access Cover

Covers are hinged and the opening aided by steel springs. Each cover is manufactured so that the cover will rise slowly or with minimal effort. Cover lifting can also be assisted with gas struts.

Long Life Span

Cubis access covers have long lifespans, reducing costs for replacements by the end user. Solid Top covers are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461. For increased longevity and aggressive environments a superior galvanising finish can be used to give a 100 (min) or 140 (min) micron zinc coating.


How The Steel Top Cover Works

The Solid Top Steel access cover is used for infrastructure and cable protection, when used in conjunction with an access chamber. Solid Top access covers are fitted into a rebate so that the top of the cover is finished flush with the ground level. Solid Top Covers can be trafficked in areas with slow moving traffic (under 20mph).

Solid Top access covers can be designed to meet the vertical load classes of A15, B125 and C250 set by EN124.
