Supplied with comprehensive test certification, the Floor Access Covers support professionals in not only achieving constant compliance, but provide a trial of due diligence, if and when required. Tested to BS 476 – Part 22 for integrity in the case of a fire, the test is for use of the cover in a dead load environment only. Any multi-parts above 4m x 3m are not covered by the fire rating.

All insulation times are also based on the Floor Access Covers being completely filled with C40 Concrete. If a surface finish is applied, such as tile, then the insulation times must be disregarded.
