Standards, classes and groupings
NotesBS EN 124 and CD 534 apply to products with a clear opening up to 1 metre. The Hercules range of access covers have a clear opening greater than this, however load capability and design features exceed the requirements of these documents. Please note that Hercules 1,200 x 1,200mm cover is the only cover in the range to have keyholes for manual lifting. All values stated are nominal within 2.5% tolerance.
National Highways skid resistance requirements
CD 534 v0.1.0 contains changes to skid resistance test requirements that are now based on a WRc test method for BS EN 124-conforming coarse textured cover surfaces. This article guides you through the test and Wrekin's conformance.
Understanding BS EN 124 groups and classes
BS EN 124:2015 divides access covers and gully grates into a number of classes by static test load. It also categorises the various places where they may be installed from Group 1 through to Group 6. This article will guide you through the groups and classes.
