Terrazzo flooring contractor TRI, chose Howe Green’s aluminium covers to provide easy, reliable and durable access to essential under-floor services for The Emirates Air Line; Transport for London’s gondola link across the River Thames from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks.

Howe Green is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of fabricated metal access covers and their quality products are made to order at no additional time or financial cost. The 5000 and 7500 Series aluminium panels are tamper resistant and double-sealed for safety and hygiene and sit flush with the floor to prevent slips and trips. They are also exceptionally hardy, making them ideal for the high levels of traffic expected to use the link, which connects two important Olympic sites.

Howe Green also designed and fabricated a bespoke decorative trim for the project. An aluminium bar with special anchors was made featuring a semi-circular section with a 10-metre radius and a 6mm visible edge. The company’s technical team worked closely with client TRI and added anchors on one side only to accommodate a 20mm Strata Granazzo floor tile - making tiling up to it much quicker and easier on site.

“We’ve worked with Howe Green for over 20 years” commented Simon Petrou, TRI’s Commercial Director “That says an awful lot about the company and the excellent standard of manufacture, service and support we get from them. The Emirates Air Line is a very prestigious project for us. It’s a job with tight time and budget pressures though, as every project is these days. Having Howe Green’s full support and knowing that they will pull out all the stops should we need them to gives us greater flexibility and peace of mind”.
