Framework agreement with United Utilities signed.

united utilities logoSSC has now won a Framework Agreement with United Utilities, following on from one with UK Power Networks, which was signed on the 1st May.

We have been working hard with United Utilities over the last 12 months, to prove the capabilities of Thrubeam lightweight covers.

Covers have been trialled in pumping stations to show the benefits of installing composite covers.

The covers have been used to replace old concrete and steel products in various locations.

The main driver for the composite cover is the health and safety benefits for operators during installation and for the continued inspection program. As covers are required to be lifted on a regular basis to inspect below ground pumps and chambers it makes it an easier inspection process.

The covers are only 13kg in weight which reduces any problems with back strain or possible injury. No heavy lifting equipment or heavy keys are required. SSC covers are just unlocked and slid to the side.

In addition the surface of the covers have an anti slip surface which reduces the impact of slipping while walking on the cover. The surface of the covers have a very hard wearing aggregate moulded into the surface.

One of the other benefits is that the covers have an automatic engage lock which only requires an operator to push the cover back into the frame and the lock engages automatically which ensures the covers always remain secure.
