ACCESS & HATCH COVERS

NEI engineers and manufactures a full line of cast-iron access and hatch covers for a variety of applications. These access and hatch covers are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit your unique specifications.

Neenah Foundry’s heavy-duty are fully compliant with AASHTO M36 & ASTMA536 standards.

We engineer our products for safety, ease of access, and the protection of the underground infrastructure.  Given the weight of these products it is critical to endure that workers are kept safe and can handle our products with ease – this is why we are continuously focused on ergonomic improvements.  Our hatch products completely eliminate heavy lifting, thereby making the performance of maintenance tasks much easier and, of course, keeping workers safe.

THE NEI Difference

Safety

  • Reduce on-the-job injuries by employing springs that perform the work, requiring less lifting force.
  • The slam latch ensures the lid will stay closed even when bolts are not replaced, further reducing injury risk.

Security

  • Avoid theft or damage to sensitive and essential equipment through secure bolting technology.
  • Enjoy watertight and water-resistant applications.
