Bilco opens the route to abseiling The Shard

Bilco, access hatch

A key role in the charity fund raising abseiling down The Shard in London, reported last month, was played by a Bilco roof hatch. Members of the abseiling team, including Prince Andrew (pictured) emerged from the surface-mounted floor door on the 87th floor to reach the starting point for the 239 m abseil.

The abseil was in aid of the Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust.
