Leading access brands Bilco and Howe Green have recently launched a new website – www.bilcouk.co.uk.
The website is designed to provide easy access to all the resources an architect, specifier or building services professional would need to include Bilco and Howe Green products in their next project. The significant investment in the new site acknowledges the importance that Bilco UK attributes to the role of the specification in the construction industry.
Howe Green Ltd, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of floor, wall and ceiling access hatches, was acquired by the ERA Group in March 2017 and incorporated into the Bilco range of horizontal access products to support Bilco’s proposition for “safe access all areas”.
The new website contains the full product range for both brands – Bilco roof access hatches, floor doors, smoke vents, ladders and roof safety products and Howe Green floor access covers, wall access panels, tree grilles and linear drainage. The website provides a wide range of resources including specifications, submittal drawings and technical data sheets in addition to links to external resources such as NBS specifications and BIM files.
To coincide with the launch of the website a new brochure has been printed. The brochure contains detailed information on floor access doors, floor access covers, wall and ceiling access and safety ladders. Again the aim is to make it easier for architects and specifiers to establish the information they need to create an appropriate specification.
Managing Director of Bilco UK Ltd and Howe Green Ltd, James Fisher, comments, “Since the acquisition of Howe Green we have been working to bring the Bilco and Howe Green brands together to deliver our ‘safe access all areas’ proposition. The new website helps us to present our full range of speciality access products in a way that is not confusing for customers who in the past may have only worked with either Bilco or Howe Green.
“We have brought together two premium quality, long established brand names to deliver a very strong offer to the building services market. Our goal is to make life easier for architects, specifiers and contractors though a combination of quality products supported by high levels of technical expertise and ease of access to information.”
