The Wright Lab (previosuly Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory) used to be home to the most powerful Atom Smasher of its kind. Now, the Labs are undergoing a 3 year renovation project to re-purpose the facility and re-position them at the forefront of physics.
Surespan provided a stainless steel flush floor hatch to measure 9 ft x 15 ft (2743mm x 4572mm). The reinforced floor door supported a live slow moving wheel load of 17 Ton (US). As a result, the covers had to be operated via a hydraulic cylinder and an electrically driven power pack. The cover was finished in our SureGrip Non-Slip surface coating.
