Our range includes steel access covers, headwall products including trash screens, raked gratings, hand railing systems and sewers for adoption compliant safety grilles, to ladders, steps iron, safety chains and signs.
Many of our products are manufactured from rolled steel sections which are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 following fabrication (as an alternative to hot dip galvanising products can be supplied stainless steel). Minimum zinc coating thickness under the standard is 85µm, this can be increased to 100µm or 140µm for extended life expectancy. As an alternative to hot dip galvanising products can be supplied stainless steel.

Bespoke access covers for the River of Light
Specialist steel access covers required as part of the artistic transformation of a city centre street in St Helier, Jersey have been designed and manufactured by civil engineering specialist Wrekin Products.
The area is an important entry point to the main shopping area of St. Helier and includes the public open space at Charing Cross. One of the highlights of the regeneration project is the Pitt Street art installation, ‘The River of Light’, funded by the Channel Islands Co-operative Society.
A simple solution to stopping raw sewage pollution
Raw sewage was discharged into England’s waterways more than 300,000 times during 2022, according to the latest Environment Agency figures. Foul drains that leak or overflow allow untreated effluent to enter storm drains, ultimately polluting our rivers and seas.

Herring Bridge: Our first end-to-end bespoke steel installation
Norfolk County Council’s third river crossing project in Great Yarmouth is one of the area’s most significant infrastructure projects in years. A significant part of the project involves an extensive upgrade to Norfolk’s road network, linking the two sides of the river and making use of a five-exit roundabout to take on the bulk of the town’s heavy traffic congestion.

Providing our expertise from manufacture through to installation, helping to overcome project halting delays while enabling site managers to discuss requirements with experts from our Wrekin Steel Team.
How consistent low-leak manhole covers could be key in flooding controls
As climate change increases the likelihood of heavy rainfall that can lead to localised flooding in many parts of the UK, and with the resulting pressure on our sewers, the drainage solutions sector has an essential role to play in supporting our infrastructure.
