Swedish Hospital “Takes a Chance” on Howe Green

Howe Green Ltd supplied HSE75 Hinged Aluminium Floor Access Covers for the £1.5 billion New Karolinska Solna University Hospital (NKS) in Stockholm through Swedish distributor, Elkington AB.

The gas assisted hinged HSE75 hatches provide easy and safe access to the underground power stations and escape routes located underneath the hospital. They have been installed in various areas and infilled with both concrete and tiled flooring to provide a seamless, flush floor finish.

The HSE75 can be infilled with ceramic tiles, marble, terrazzo, concrete, resin, wood or parquet floors and is suitable for pedestrian and vehicle traffic up to a 5 tonne pneumatic tyre wheel load. Supplied as a single cover or a configuration of duct covers HSE75 is available in standard sizes from stock or can be precision made to order.
