2017 has been a busy year for Howe Green Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of fabricated metal floor, wall and ceiling access covers.Howe Green’s access covers have been specified and installed in a diverse range of projects over the last 12 months, from Scottish castles to Swedish museums. The strongest demand has, however, been generated from the infrastructure sector.

Howe Green has supplied over 400 access covers to Tier 1 contractors working on Europe’s largest construction project – Crossrail. The new Elizabeth line will comprise 118 kilometres of track running through London and the South East and is set to reduce average journey times significantly.

Tier 1 contractor Laing O’ Rourke has specified Howe Green access covers for Canary Wharf, Custom House and Tottenham Court Road stations.

Over 60 of Howe Green’s 7500 Series Multipart Stainless Steel Floor Access Covers were supplied for Tottenham Court Road station. When completed this will be one of London’s busiest stations with over 200,000 passengers a day.All components of the building envelope in such a highly trafficked and challenging environment need to be robust and easy to maintain.

The large 4 part units were precision made to order to ensure that they would be a perfect fit.Installed by specialist stone contractor Vetter UK, the covers have been infilled with granite to match the surrounding area.Supplied with barrel lifting points, with just the securing bolt and barrel edge visible, the covers fit flush with the flooring to reduce the risk of slip and trip hazards.
