Cost-effective access with Gatic COEX.
COEX is a development from Gatic, aimed at reducing the cost of vital underground access to projects where the safe protection of underground services and equipment is required. This makes COEX ideal for use on projects such as gas and electricity sites, power stations and sub stations, sewerage and water treatment work, pumping stations and commercial and industrial sites.
Light, but tough.
Comprised of a comprehensive system of single, duct and multi span access covers and frames, COEX offers the versatility of a galvanised steel frame combined with the rigidity and durability of ductile iron covers. This engineering allows for shallower, lighter covers to be installed, offering an affordable alternative to expensive and heavy deep steel or concrete slabs.
Standards and specification.
All Gatic COEX covers are manufactured from ductile iron components to BS EN 1563:2011, with side frames and removable beams made to BS EN 124:1994. COEX covers are designed to withstand test load and maximum permanent set criteria specified in BS EN 124:1994 for each loading category.
A range of benefits:
Correctly installed, Gatic covers will be nonrocking under slow moving traffic.
• Easy removal and replacement
The machined underside seating face of Gatic covers allows the sliding out of covers for easy removal or replacement.
• Anti-slip surface covers
Concrete infill covers provide a non-slip surface similar to the surrounding areas. Solid top covers incorporate a raised lozenge pattern on the surface.
• Secure and vandal resistant
Covers are designed to prevent tampering and unauthorised removal.
Ventilation can be provided via ventilation tubes fitted in recessed covers.
• Closed keyways
Gatic cover keyways are closed and fitted with plastic plugs to prevent the ingress of dirt.
• Secure support
The clear opening width between supporting frames are at least 7mm greater than the pit/chamber design to allow for minor deviations in pit construction dimensions.
• Environmentally Considerate
Gatic COEX is designed and manufactured to have the minimal environmental impact.
