Access covers and top sections (gully tops) are classified as follows:
The (test) load class to be chosen depends on the area of application. The different areas of application are divided into groups from 1 – 6 (vide illustration here below). Illustr. 1 and 2 show positioning within a road. For each group the test load class to be used is stated in brackets. The decision as to which class should be chosen lies within the responsibility of the user/planner. In case of doubt, however, we recommend to use the next higher class.
Circulation areas frequented exclusively by pedestrians and bicyclists.
Walkways, pedestrian precincts and comparable areas, parking lots and car parks.

Carriageways / public roads (incl. pedestrian precincts – garbage/fire fighting vehicles), Paved verges of roads (illustr. 1 and 2) and parking areas, which are permiited to road vehicles of all kinds.
Areas used by vehicles with high wheel load, such as in docks and airport service areas.
