Composite

Gatic Composite is a comprehensive system of single duct and multispan access covers and frames for use in pedestrian areas where an anti-slip, light weight, lockable and aesthetic solution is required in environments up to B125 loading.

Cover types
Gatic Composite covers are lightweight and extremely strong, which reduces lifting risks to installers and inspectors. This is a major advantage of composite materials.
Performance
Our composite covers have been tested independently for antislip properties in both dry and wet conditions.
Secure and vandal resistant
Gatic covers are lockable and cannot be removed without the correct lifting key so unauthorised removal is virtually impossible.
Loadings
All Gatic Composite covers will withstand test load and maximum permanent set criteria specified in BS EN 124: up to B125.
Secure Support
The clear opening width between supporting frames is bigger than the pit/chamber design to allow for minor deviations in pit construction dimensions.
Removable Support Beams
Supporting beams in Composite Multispan units are easily removed with appropriate lifting equipment for access to the total chamber area. Beam wallboxes do not project into the chamber opening.
Finishes
Colours available - Black, Grey, Blue, Green and Red. Other colours available on request.
Frame work - Galvanised steel.
Installation
Consignments of Composite units are supplied with comprehensive installation instructions.
