When it comes to custom access products, Acudor continues to show why they are the leader in the industry. Across the globe, our exemplary products have been providing solutions for even the most intricate and challenging projects. Our custom fabrication ability allows us to cover a wide range of applications without compromising the quality of our products.
In a recent job, Acudor was responsible for providing three oversized, custom hatches. Each hatch required a clear opening size of 96” x 96”, approximating an overall size of 117” x 117”. These custom hatches were fabricated for the Opequon Water Supply Water Treatment Plant, located in Stephenson, VA. The treatment plant was designed to help supply clean water to the residents of Frederick County.
These oversized hatches will serve as access points for heavy water filtration equipment to be craned in and out. Once the project has been completed, the facility will be responsible for giving access to nearly three billion gallons of high-quality water to the community it serves.
To ensure that these three oversized hatches arrived in perfect condition to the jobsite, we mounted them on custom wedge-shaped pallets, which would then fit in a traditional 40 ft. truck. This pallet design would not only be sturdy, but also offer easy maneuverability while on a standard forklift. Acudor’s team has been invested in ensuring that all aspects of the hatches’ creation, transportation, and application are seamless.
