Comments by Terry Boardman

“Some of the key advantages of using Dura Slab for our replacement service duct covers relate to better accessibility and its light weight construction. Dura Slab improves Health & Safety in several ways. Previous concrete covers required at least 2 men to lift them and as a result of their significant weight, there was a risk of injury. Now that Dura Slab has been installed, it means that one man can now lift a duct cover by himself and then work on the services without any need for additional man power. This saves money and time and also means that we don’t have any problems carrying out maintenance. The anti-slip surface is also important because the service duct covers are used as pedestrian walkways; the last thing we want is people slipping over due to a slippery surface in wet conditions. Finally, we found that Dura Slab was cheaper than the quote we received for bespoke concrete covers with the special lifting eyes to suit a 2/3 man lift”
