"There’s never been a better time to buy"

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Jul 28, 2016

The last time sterling fell below $1.31 was in September 1985, nearly 31 years ago! Back in 1985 Howe Green had been trading for just two years and its focus was very firmly on serving the domestic market in the UK.

Howe Green’s founder, Antony Centa, had worked for many years for a company manufacturing and installing Terrazzo tiles. During his time with this company he identified a real need for a solution that could provide easy and safe access to services, such as electrical cabling, which were installed under the Terrazzo flooring.

Howe Green was established to address this demand. Antony designed and developed a high quality aluminum access cover that could provide a reliable way in which to access concealed under floor services in highly trafficked areas, such as supermarkets and shopping malls.

Fast forward to 2016 and Howe Green has developed a worldwide reputation as a leading manufacturer of floor, wall and ceiling access covers, panels and hatches. Howe Green access covers are supplied around the globe through a network of trusted distributors. They can be found in a diverse range of buildings from a church in Indianapolis to a major US international airport; from Buckingham Palace to a patio in Liverpool; from Education City in Qatar to a hospital in Berlin.

The company is still family owned and operated by Antony Centa’s four sons and building relationships based on trust and honesty remains an integral part of the company ethos.

Why choose Howe Green access covers?

Standard sizes of floor access covers are available from stock from our distributor, FF Systems Inc, who have offices and warehouse facilities in the US and Canada.

Bespoke sizes can be ordered via FF Systems Inc, manufactured by Howe Green in the UK and shipped direct to site using our trusted shipping partners.

The level of technical expertise available from the team at Howe Green has been acquired over 33 years of working with and understanding the needs of architects, specifiers and contractors. Whatever your access challenge Howe Green can develop a solution.

The weakness of the £ makes these high quality access hatches better value for money than they have ever been before.

Richard Centa, Sales and Marketing Director for Howe Green explains, “We have been exporting for over 26 years and have distributors covering 5 continents. From our perspective the fall in the value of sterling presents an opportunity for Howe Green to expand our export business even further.

There really has never been a better time to buy our floor, wall and ceiling access covers, hatches and panels. Over the years we have not competed on price as we are selling a premium product supported by a high level of technical competence. However given the UK’s decision to leave the European Union the fall in the value of the £ has made our access covers even better value for money and we believe that is a fact worth highlighting!”
