As part of the multi-million pound airport-wide transformation of London Stansted, construction leaders Carillion and Galliford Try selected Howe Green’s Floor Access Covers to provide reliable access to essential underfloor services.

Over 250 bespoke panels and frames were supplied for Stansted’s new Satellite One and Departure Hall refurbishment, in two separate phases of works delivered by specialist flooring contractors P. Plunkett’s and AC Flooring.

UK manufacturer Howe Green adapted its Stainless Steel 2500 and 5000 Series Floor Access Covers to custom depths and incorporated additional baseplate reinforcement to accommodate specific site conditions and meet the required loading. As well as single covers, the company’s innovative multipart covers were also used. A series of panels set into one larger frame, they grant simple access to more complex junctions of service utilities.

Howe Green’s covers provide a high quality solution for easy access to vital underground services so that, should any maintenance be required, access is straightforward and will not require costly, time-consuming and disruptive removal of paving slabs or flooring.

The panels have tamper-resistant features to provide additional security, whilst double sealing at the edges makes for enhanced hygiene. They fit perfectly flush with their surround to avoid distortion and prevent slips or trips; essential for heavily trafficked locations such as the UK’s fastest growing airport.
