Suregrip Non-Slip surface coating

Surespan floor access covers can be manufactured using calcined bauxite, a special surfacing material which has been independently tested and proven to provide high friction contact. It has been specially developed to provide an aesthetically pleasing, high durable surface.

Suregrip is available in on any size floor access cover and can be customized for any application, logo or signature which can be provided in a range of colours.

This can also be applied to Surespan's IAC Floor Hatches.

Suregrip non-slip coating

Drainage connection

Surespan Heavy Duty access hatch is not watertight, although a self draining cover is available. Any water passing the seals will be dispersed via integral drainage channel, which is fitted with an optional internal or external ¾ inch flexible hose adaptor (for connection to drain by others.)

This can also be applied to Surespan's E Class Heavy Duty Floor Hatches.

Water drainage


E Class Heavy Duty Floor Access Covers can be used individually or as multiples. It is possible to open each lid individually.

Available in standard sizes only.

Hot Tub Covers

Surespan single leaf hot tub covers allow you to have a hot tub within even the smallest terraced areas. When not in use, the cover conceals the hot tub, so you can use the space for entertaining or dining.

When you fancy a dip, simply press a button and the hot tub cover opens to reveal your sunken hot tub.

Surespan's hot tub covers are custom made to match your decking, paving or tiling and can fit any size or shaped tub. They are child-safe as they can only be opened by a key switch or remote control.

Hot tub

Hot tub covers are heavy items that should be moved using two people. Surespan's electrically operated hot tub covers enable one person to easily open and close their spa with the push of a single button. Our hot tub covers also hide the hot tub neatly out of the way providing extra room for entertaining. Hot tub covers are susceptible to damage if they are abused; the best way to keep yours in good condition is to fit an electrically operated hot tub cover.
