Two and three part access covers are generally assembled to order.  Utilising standard stock sizes, single part covers can be joined to achieve longer lengths than are available in one part covers. Two and three part covers are available in all class ratings (classes B – G of AS3996).

Multi-Part Access Covers

Multi-part access covers are used when a pit is too large to be spanned by a single part access cover.  Removable beams are used to support the inserts.  Multi-part access covers are manufactured to order and any pit size can be covered.  Contact us with your requirements.

Stainless Steel Riser Access Covers

Riser access covers are used for areas with a tiled, paved or exposed aggregate finish and offer an aesthetic finish.  Available with stainless steel riser strips, any sized access cover can have risers added.  Manufactured to order, risers usually extend the height of the cover by 20mm (tiles) or 40 – 60mm (pavers, bluestone, aggregates), however any height is achievable.  Contact us with your requirements.
