Roof Hatches - Access Hatches - Smoke Ventilators - Roof Vents
Bilco has launched Bilco Assist, a new initiative aimed at sharing its knowledge and expertise with the construction industry. The leading access products manufacturer is investing in providing a resource which architects, building engineers, facilities managers, roofers and M&E contractors can tap into, to improve their skills in access product specification.
“This is one area in which most of the industry’s proficiency in specification still lies with the manufacturer,” says James Fisher, Managing Director for Bilco. “While access products have evolved and improved over the past couple of decades, there is still a confusion of ownership of their specification process, so the usual wealth of knowledge that comes with years of practice just hasn’t been accumulated.
“We want to be able to help educate those who need to specify roof access products, so our teams will be available on site, at the end of a phone and to provide CPD seminars, at a customer’s own premises if they prefer; in order to share the dos and don’ts of roof hatch specification, in order to achieve a quality product and installation, while maximising best value for money.”
The task of roof hatch specification can be carried out by an architect, but is also often left to the building contractor, M&E contractor or roofer. Bilco has observed that facilitates managers can find that they inherit a product that is not the most suitable and can even represent an ongoing safety issue, which could have been avoided with a more informed specification.
Because the task can land almost anywhere along the construction chain, the task is often handed to someone with less experience than they would normally need to make a truly informed decision, says Bilco. “When you repeatedly carry out a task, you tend to become expert at it,” explains Fisher. “Being given this task from time to time doesn’t make it easy for anyone to become proficient at it or to remain current in their knowledge. So it seemed a sensible move for us to make what we know more widely available; hence the launch of Bilco Assist.”
Bilco Assist also includes a repository of information on Bilco’s website www.bilcouk.com, which includes CAD drawings, BIM information and NBS Building specifications. “If you haven’t had the opportunity to become expert, the next best thing is to consult one – ideally, Bilco,” concludes Fisher.
Bilco is also forging links with industry organisations and has recently joined both the National Federation of Roofing Contractors and the Single Ply Roofing Association, through which it is working to share advice and guidance on specifying suitable products for each project or application.
Bilco Achieves Lift-Off with 70% Lighter Floor Access Covers

Bilco Floor Access Cover
Bilco has lightened the load for floor access covers with the launch of an innovative new range of lightweight floor access covers which are 70% lighter than conventional concrete filled covers; as well as being easier to install. Using patented ‘honeycomb’ plates which replace the concrete normally used, the access covers come pre-filled and will significantly reduce installation times. Designed for interior use, the cover has been tested and shown to withstand loads of up to 15kN and is therefore ideal for areas with pedestrian traffic only. These new Bilco floor access covers come already filled with material used in the aviation industry in order to keep load bearings to a minimum. Bilco lightweight floor covers come in CLA type, hinged and lift assist versions.
The frames are manufactured from extruded aluminium with a pan depth of 24mm and an EPDM rubber seal. These lightweight covers are reading to receive a wide variety of floorings including carpet, tiles, slabs and parquet, which can be fixed directly to the honeycomb plate filled cover using adhesive. When using thin tiles, the difference in height can be compensated for by using waterproof building board and a suitable adhesive such as MAPEI Keralastic.
This eliminates the need to fill the door cover with concrete as in traditional products. As a result the access cover is 70% lighter than conventional concrete floor hatches. It also speeds installation times as there is no need to wait for concrete to set; the cover can be installed immediately. The 70% lighter product is easier to handle and install on site, making life simpler for the installer. On a typical 60cm x 60cm cover, a standard concrete cover might weigh 75kg, compared with just 20kg for Bilco’s new lightweight cover.
With this new access cover, Bilco has provided a product which makes the floor door easier to open and close, helping to improve its longevity as it places less strain on the hinges and therefore results in less day to day wear and tear. Tested to 15kN, Bilco’s range of lightweight floor access covers are robust, well-constructed and will give many years of reliable service. These new covers are ideal for use in the floors of airports, educational establishments, offices, hospitals, hotels, retail outlets and even family homes. The patented honeycomb material is commonly used in aircraft panels and passenger deck flooring to provide a strong, practical and lightweight structure.
This new lightweight CLA type floor cover pan is part of a range of floor access products available from Bilco at www.bilcouk.com. Bilco is also a leading manufacturer of roof and floor access products and NSHEV smoke vents. It provides fixed safety ladders, hatch safety railings, fall protection gratings and Bilco’s LadderUp® Safety Post.
