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.
