On a project requiring a unique solution for Biomass
storage, Steelway Brickhouse were chosen to survey,
design and install a one piece hydraulic operated access
cover. Steelway were chosen due to their ability and
expertise as a leading manufacturer of non standard
fabricated access cover solutions.
The size of the opening required for offloading fuel was
3000x3000mm. Traditionally a cover of this size would be
manufactured from multiple cover segments with
additional support beams, but due to the requirement for
frequent access into the fuel container, a solution for a one
piece access cover was required.
Further design requirements for the access cover for Biomass storage included the need for fire
tenders to traffic the cover and for surface water not to
enter the chamber.
To overcome the biomass storage access cover requirements a one piece cover was
designed complete with hydraulic lifting arms, heavy duty
reinforcements and internal frame drainage.
Steelway Brickhouse part of Steelway Fensecure Ltd are
committed to providing bespoke access cover solutions on
any project requirement. They have two dedicated
manufacturing facilities which are both extremely flexible in
their approach to producing specialist designs. Combining
this with over 90 years of fabrication experience, they have
