See the answer to your previous post called burying radiator pipes. The answer wont change I'm afraid, the building regulations are there for your benefit.

Hi,

As the doctor said in your previous post :-

[quote]
Regulations now state that pipes in floors must be in accessible ducts. This means that a plywood duct should be made and a lid screwed to it. The pipe sits in the duct and need be no more than 30mm deep with the lid of the duct forming part of the floor surface.[/quote]

So as you can see the the duct must have the lid accessible somehow.
