University Saves Time and Money with Visedge Floor Access Covers

 

Howe Green’s Visedge Series Flexible Floor Access Covers are helping the University of Surrey to save time and money when it comes to maintenance of concealed services in their busy refectory.

University Saves Time and Money with Visedge Floor Access Covers

Established in 1966 the university estate has been transformed over the last 18 years with a £400 million building development and improvement programme. A series of investments has been made in student accommodation, the Surrey Sports Park, the Library and Learning Centre and the Ivy Arts Centre.

Additional investment has also been made in a new School of Veterinary Medicine and 5G Innovation Centre, a research centre for mobile communications and future internet technologies.
With a population of over 15,000 students the campus of the award winning university is a hive of activity.

Fourteen of Howe Green’s Visedge Series Flexible Floor Access Covers were specified for a refurbishment project in the refectory by main contractor, Roberts Building Services Ltd of Woking. The access covers were fitted by Progressive Floor Surfaces, a family run business with over 55 years of experience in the installation of flexible and hard flooring finishes.

Once installed the Visedge covers were infilled with Altro StrongholdTM which has been developed specifically for use in commercial kitchens, canteens and food preparation areas. This safety flooring has Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance as well as providing noise reduction and comfort underfoot due to the 3mm thickness of the flooring. Weldable PVC securing edge were used to enable the frame section of the access cover to be bonded and welded to the cut edge of the sheet flooring. By doing this an impermeable, flat, hygienic and permanent joint was formed ensuring the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene.

The Visedge Series Flexible Floor Access Covers replaced frames which were so heavy and cumbersome that they had previously taken four people to remove whenever maintenance of the services concealed beneath the flooring was required. The new Visedge covers offer a tough, light weight, non-rusting access solution. In the event of any maintenance to underfloor services the covers can be removed safely, quickly and easily with the use of lifting keys, keeping disruption in the busy university refectory to a minimum.

George Flinn, Managing Director from Progressive Floors comments, “Our experience with Howe Green on this project was perfect. 11/10 from start to finish! We rang them for a quote which was provided by return. The Visedge covers were delivered on time and were easy to install. We were very happy with the service we received from the Howe Green team.”

The Visedge Series offers a pedestrian loading and is suitable for pedestrian footfall, wheeled trolleys and sack trucks. The covers can be supplied as a single cover, a duct run or as a multipart unit. A range of standard sizes are available from stock or can be custom made to order where a bespoke size is required.
