Bilco supply the following ranges:

Roof Access Hatches:

Roof access hatches provide access to the roof areas for routine maintenance and inspection as well as for servicing of HVAC systems and other roof mounted equipment. They are ideally suited for use in office buildings, flats, factories, warehouses, retail stores, shopping complexes, hotels, manufacturing plants, hospitals, schools, auditoria and sports facilities where roof access is a requirement.

Natural Smoke & Heat Exhaust Ventilators (NSHEV) - CE Marking Compliant:

Natural smoke vents help vent smoke and gases from burning buildings primarily to provide clearer means of escape for individuals within the building. They also aid firefighting visibility when entering the building to fight the fire and reduce the lateral spread of the fire. Used widely in stairwells, corridors, smoke shafts and on roof areas of factories, warehouses, auditoria and retail facilities. CE Marked Compliant.

Bilco natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilators are manufactured to comply with all the latest regulations including the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011. All standard vents are supplied CE marked and with a Declaration of Conformity and are manufactured to meet the demands of Building Regulations, Approved Document B, BS9999 and EN12101-2.

Bilco BIM Information Forms Part of RIBA National BIM Library

Bilco BIM Information Forms Part of RIBA National BIM Library

Bilco UK is helping the UK construction industry to embrace the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling) by making its product BIM information available via RIBA’s NBS National BIM library. Architects will now have this invaluable resource to help them determine the most appropriate and cost effective products for each project, without compromising on either safety or quality.

"Specifying access products has lagged behind some other areas of product specification as architects have had less experience in specifying these vital products," says James Fisher, Managing Director of Bilco UK. "This has been due to a confusion as to whose responsibility it was to specify the product itself, rather than simply stating at planning stage that such a product must be used. The choice of access product has sometimes been handed to the builder, the M&E contractor and sometimes the roofer. With the advent of BIM and this new resource, we are certain that architects will rapidly gain expertise at specifying access products at the design stage, designing in accessibility with safety at the earliest stages, benefitting not only the construction industry but also millions of future users of new buildings."

This latest initiative from Bilco follows its recent strides to increase safety in the industry through the increase in knowledge and expertise in the specification of access products. To this end, the company founded its own online resource, Bilco Assist, which has already seen thousands of downloads of CAD sheets, BIM information and NBS Building specifications from its online resource at www.bilcouk.com. Bilco has also joined the British Safety Council, the Single Ply Roofing Association, Constructionline and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited.

Bilco -Out of this World Installation for Bilco Products at the European Space Agency

Bilco UK - Out of this World Installation for Bilco Products at the European Space Agency

Bilco Roof Hatch
Two Bilco SS-50T roof hatches and two BL-ZBOX retractable ladders with trap doors have been installed at the UK branch of the European Space Agency (ESA) at the Harwell Oxford Science, Innovation and Business Campus in Didcot, Oxfordshire. The Bilco products will ensure easy and safe access to the roof of the five-story office building and conference centre for maintenance and repair.

Bouygues UK Regional Director, Cliff Thomas, said, "The ESA want to create an exceptional building, both aesthetically and environmentally, so using the very best products is essential. Bilco roof access products have allowed us to install bespoke sized roof hatches large enough to move personnel and equipment through for maintenance work to be carried out on the green roof."

At 1220mm x 1220mm the two Bilco SS-50T roof hatches are both large enough to move equipment to the roof for the maintenance of the green area. The SS-50T roof hatch includes specialist gasketing and increased insulation for superior energy efficiency and performance making it the perfect choice for a project where energy performance is key.

The Bilco BL-ZBOX retractable ladder with trapdoor is manufactured to EN 14975 (DN 4570) standards and is designed for easy installation and use. Heavy duty counter balancing springs provide safe and controlled operation, whilst a timber lining and trapdoor discretely enclose the ladder from the underside so as to leave interior design uncompromised. Also available is a fire rated 1.5mm steel hatchbox with steel trapdoor, in F30 or F90 versions. The BL-ZBOX retractable ladder is available with telescopic handrails for safer use, insulation for thermal efficiency and can be fitted with electronic operation. Bilco offers a BL-ZBOX backboard designed to provide additional steps and 2 hand rails between the top of the retractable ladder and the top of the structural opening or roof hatch.

The ESA building has been designed to be highly energy efficient and sustainable, reflecting the client’s wishes for low running costs and a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) Excellent rating. Ground source heat pumps facilitate heating and cooling of the building and high quality insulation and natural ventilation of the office areas have all come together to keep energy use to a minimum.

As well as providing a modern workspace for over 100 ESA staff the development is home to an indoor and outdoor exhibition area, a gym, a new vehicular access route and parking.
