New Calpro range of triple seal aluminium recessed covers
Introducing our new range of triple seal aluminium recessed access covers and frames, designed to accommodate a range of flooring finishes - including popular porcelain paving, which has seen a recent surge in demand.
Available through merchants nationwide, the new range aluminium covers and frames have been designed with performance and aesthetics in mind. This means that contractors do not have to compromise on the demands of either, due to the strong, corrosion-resistant aluminium finish which blends in seamlessly with the surrounding flooring, whilst protecting against odour and egress. This is in addition to preventing dirt and contaminants penetrating – all thanks to the clever integrated neoprene triple seal solution.
Paul continued, “The added benefit of aluminium is that it is a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel, which can be four to five times more expensive. It is also highly compatible with different types of floorings, including popular porcelain paving, so we are really pleased to be able to offer competitive alternatives for contractors that can tick so many boxes. Not forgetting how high performance this range is, the integrated triple seal solution ensures resistance to gas, water, and grit ingress. Altogether, this is a fantastic addition to our range and one we know will help to meet the increased contractor and specifier demand.”
Coming ready packed with threaded keys for easy lifting through screw holes, contractors can rely on the range for both internal and outdoor specifications, suitable across a variety of sectors, including residential, education, health, leisure, and retail.
