Steelway Defender range of access covers and frames are designed for use on a variety of applications that require frequent opening and are subject to slow moving vehicular traffic. All of the products within the Defender range incorporate heavy guage torsion springs for ease of opening by one person. The range incorporates a deep channel frame which is sealed by EPDM or Nitrile and can be drained into the chamber or by weep pipes externally. Its frame design offers excellent stability under load. The Defender range is suitable for all applications especially on new builds where rebates are to be cast or where road conditions are being built up around the framing.
