Hello All; I am looking for access covers for a utility trench in a pedestrian area recessed to fit unit pavers. The power company thinks steel covers are very beautiful, but we are trying to disguise this one into the paving.
Hi Daniel, whats the paving composition (base, joints, paver dimension) and the utility type and cover, is it a manhole? It’s tough to grasp exactly what’s going on from the given information. Are you looking to camoflouge the access or cover with pavers?
Geoffrey; Thanks for the reply. This is a utility trench between an electrical transformer and the main distribution room for a senior apartment building. (The transformer is located very near the main entry to the building to access the electrical room located very near the main entry by the architect; Hmmmm…..) The power company requires an accessible cable trench from the transformer to the building. Attached is a sketch of the application; 2′-8″ wide. We will adjust the paving to work with the cover.
Bummer. I probably could have used this on a recent project. We went a totally different instead, but this would have been a good (maybe even a better) option. Thanks for the link and info; I’ll keep it in mind for next time.
