Combining personnel emergency escape and entry in a high security upstand cover, Technocover’s innovative LPCB certified UltraSecure Emergency Escape Unit sets a new benchmark as it launches.

The two-way security hatch is not only the first of its kind with LPCB certification, it is also the first access cover on the market approved to LPS 1175 Issue 8, the latest revision of LPCB’s demanding test standard.

Available with a D10 security rating, the novel addition to Technocover’s extensive LPCB portfolio has resolved technically complex challenges, assisted by bespoke locking from Tindall Engineering, to achieve secure, dual access functionality.

The design fills a gap for an emergency escape cover for underground assets, which allows ingress by authorised personnel compatible with site security while assuring LPCB certified resistance to physical attack. This will significantly enhance operational flexibility for tasks such as plant maintenance on utilities, telecommunications, transport, energy and other critical infrastructure sites and high security applications.

The new range offers sizes to meet clear openings from 700 mm by 600 mm to 1200 mm square and Technocover’s usual value-adding features such as alarm brackets, domed water-shedding lid and assisted, one-person cover handling.
