The importance of site visitations when specifying steelwork
Due to a lack of regulations and agreed industry standards, specifying the right steelwork for a project can be a minefield. Paul Shaw, director of fabricated steel at Wrekin Products, discusses the importance of expert site visitations when it comes to engineering cost-effective, long-lasting, and practical solutions.
BT approved access covers now available
Certified to BS EN124 and carrying the British Standards Institute (BSI) Kitemark, our BT approved access covers are ideal for use in Group 2 B125 class environments such as car parks, open air shopping precincts and pedestrianised town centre areas where occasional vehicular access is likely.
Famous setting for infill covers
Wrekin’s products can be found in a wide variety of environments, some more iconic than others.
The 100mm deep block pavior infill cover and frames seen here were installed recently on the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance in Staffordshire which honours the fallen and recognises service and sacrifice.
