Our composite covers continue to grow in popularity despite already being the first choice for many builders throughout the UK. We researched and developed our composite covers as an alternative to heavier iron-based solutions. The material utilised in Eccles composite covers is lightweight, easy to handle and fit for purpose in a wide range of challenging use cases.
While composites were previously viewed as a high-cost alternative, research and development undertaken by Eccles has significantly reduced these costs and accelerated the adoption of composite covers into contemporary projects.
Comprising both sought-after practical applications and aesthetic considerations, our Cover-All system provides an eye-pleasing and lightweight manhole solution.See More
Our UK testing facility and machinery is custom built for the testing of access covers and grates falling under EN124:2015. Our digitised test load machine can apply a load of up to 150 tonnes with a bed size 1000×1000. A wide range of access covers and grates can be tested at our facility on this machinery, which also has the capability to carry new additional tests in EN124 pull out and tilt test.
After practically testing the samples and prototypes, we thoroughly inspect and analyse each one to ensure they are manufactured to the design requirements set by Eccles and meet the parameters and specifications of the corresponding standard. Bringing this process in-house is a huge benefit as allows us the flexibility to make dynamic adjustments and modifications to perfect the product for optimum functionality and efficiency. Only once these stringent requirements are met, and our rigorous testing is complete, is the product is then ready for mass production.
Eccles holds its own BSI Kitemark license KM656600 for the standard EN124-2:2015. This certification confirms our commitment to demonstrating leading levels of consistency, quality and reliability throughout our entire range.
This is demonstrated further by Eccles being one of the first companies globally to be awarded certification from the British Standards Institute for the most recent EN standard for access covers and frames BS EN124-2015.
In moving from the previous accreditation (BS EN124:1994), we have completed further and more stringent testing to transition our kitemark to the latest certification.
