Our 30 years of technical expertise and leadership have allowed us to develop a range of unique, innovative and patented products that give the specifier and contractor significant benefits.
Access covers and gully grates can be safety critical. In certain circumstances failure or misuse could lead to injury or loss of life.

As well as optimising frame stiffness and rib positioning and design Wrekin have developed additional unique features and benefits :
This is a unique form of iron which has been treated before the casting process to produce an exceptionally strong and durable material with high impact resistance. It has a much superior strength to weight ratio than traditional grey cast iron.
This combination of properties allows Wrekin to design and produce our innovative features and make significant weight savings that could not be achieved with less sophisticated materials.
