  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Jan 22, 2013

Howe Green will be exhibiting their high quality steel and aluminum access covers and hatches alongside their US Distributor, FF Systems, at this year’s NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas (booth N2735).

Howe Green is one of the world’s most respected and well known manufacturers of floor, wall and ceiling access solutions offering quick and easy access to concealed services, such as plumbing, HVAC, electrics and communications.

Howe Green’s access covers and hatches are commonly used throughout commercial, industrial, public and residential buildings where a combination of high performance, durability and design is important. Manufactured to order from corrosion resistant aluminum and galvanized steel, they are quick and easy to install providing good appearance coupled with secure and robust performance. The covers can be key locked where necessary, are double sealed to help prevent the ingress of dirt and moisture, and can be in-filled with the surrounding material, making them virtually invisible and removing the hazard of slips and trips.

Howe Green’s U.S. distributor, FF Systems of Fort Myers, stocks a range of access panels in a variety of standard sizes and offers immediate U.S. delivery which greatly reduces delivery time and costs. Complementing FF Systems’ own line of hand welded aluminum wall access panels, all products are hand-finished to exacting dimensions giving the specifier and customer complete peace of mind. Manufacturing to order ensures minimum on-site problems saving time and money on installation and reducing the potential for remedial work.

Richard Centa, UK Sales and Marketing Director for Howe Green, comments, “We introduced our products to the US building industry last February at the NAHB International Builders Show in Florida, Our access covers have been very well received and generated a lot of interest and specifications in the U.S. – from small residential projects through to school gymnasiums and even a large installation in an international airport.

With over 25 years’ experience of manufacturing access covers, we have developed a worldwide reputation for quality and innovation. US architects, contractors and specifiers demand and expect top quality products and that’s something Howe Green can offer. We’re excited to be heading to Las Vegas and have the opportunity to demonstrate firsthand how our access covers are different and why they are increasing in popularity across North America.”

Both Howe Green and FF System’s access covers and hatches will be on display on Booth N2735. Alternatively, for more information please call239-689-5334 or visit or
