Access specialists launch new website

ACCESS specialists Bilco and Howe Green have recently launched a new website to provide easy access to resources for architects, specifiers and building services professionals.

Howe Green Ltd, a manufacturer of floor, wall and ceiling access hatches, was acquired by the ERA Group in March 2017 and incorporated into the Bilco range of horizontal access products to support Bilco’s proposition for “safe access all areas”.

The new website – – contains the full product range for both brands: Bilco roof access hatches, floor doors, smoke vents, ladders and roof safety products and Howe Green floor access covers, wall access panels, tree grilles and linear drainage. The site also provides a range of resources including specifications, submittal drawings and technical data sheets in addition to links to external resources such as NBS specifications and BIM files.

James Fisher, managing director of Bilco UK and Howe Green said, “Since the acquisition of Howe Green we have been working to bring the Bilco and Howe Green brands together to deliver our ‘safe access all areas’ proposition. The new website helps us to present our full range of speciality access products in a way that is not confusing for customers who in the past may have only worked with either Bilco or Howe Green.

“We have brought together two premium quality, long established brand names to deliver a very strong offer to the building services market. Our goal is to make life easier for architects, specifiers and contractors though a combination of quality products supported by high levels of technical expertise and ease of access to information.”
