Access doors manufacturer Bilco UK Ltd ( has introduced a 'golden key' system for opening its range of exterior access covers.

When the golden key is inserted into one of the four corner keyways on the cover the unique shaft design breaks the seal between the cover and the surrounding frame. This - coupled with the tapered profile of the cover itself - allows even a 'sticking' cover to be easily removed from the frame. The keyways also provide lifting points - each cover comes with two keys to enable it to be moved easily to one side to provide access to services or underground space.

Bilco access covers are available with a range of depths and structures to accept pedestrian, vehicular or industrial loadings and can be finished with brick, concrete or other materials to allow them to merge with driveways, patios and car parks.

The covers can be manufactured in steel, stainless steel or aluminium and with reinforcing to meet a wide range of loading requirements. They can be supplied with watertight sealing, insulation and fire protection if required.

Bilco also manufactures a range of roof hatches, smoke vents and pit and floor doors. Models include drainage doors, non-drainage doors, lift assisted doors, doors designed to receive flooring materials, doors for interior building applications, fire rated floor doors and a series of special application doors
