Biomass Access

Surespan manufactured a biomass access cover for the National Criminal Justice Centre in Northampton

Double Leaf

The double leaf hatch is electrically operated by a key switch and has synchronised leaf operation with a safety grid.

Biomass Access

National Justice Centre, Northampton

Surespan was chosen by Archial Architects to custom design a hatch to provide access to a Biomass storage plant at the new Criminal Justice Centre in Northampton.

The double leaf hatch – measuring 2750mm x 2900mm – is electrically operated by a key switch and has synchronised leaf operation with a safety grid. Rated to FACTA Class A pedestrian loading, it was designed with a chequerplate lid to match the surround and incorporates a rain skirt apron and Sureguard handrail system on both sides.

A secondary 1000mm x 1000mm gas spring operated floor hatch was installed to allow personnel easy access to the plant. It too features a chequerplate lid to match the surround and has a retractable hand hold for safety. Once open, a Surespan standard ladder provides safe and easy access down to the plant.
