Yale University, USA - The Wright Lab

Floor Access Hatches

The Wright Lab (previosuly Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory) used to be home to the most powerful Atom Smasher of its kind. The Labs are now undergoing a 3 year renovation project to repurpose the facility and re-position them at the forefront of physics.

Surespan provided a steel SAC Flush Cover to measure 2743 (9'-0") x 4572mm (15'-0"). The cover was reinforced to support a live slow moving wheel load of 16 Tonnes. They were operated via a hydraulic cylinder and an electrically driven power pack. The cover was finished in SureGrip Non-Slip surface coating.
