Product details

  • In short
    Access hatch rooflights provide safe and reliable access to roof areas, so that essential works and maintenance can be carried out.

    Designed with both practicality and appearance in mind, these hatches are easy to install, energy efficient and secure.

    Each unit is equipped with a single-leaf aluminium lid that can be manually opened to 90˚. It has a gas spring-assisted opening mechanism for ease of use and an automatic hold-open safety stay to keep the cover open while workers are on the roof, preventing accidental closing.

    Depending on project requirements, various internal and external push-pad locking options can also be included for added security.
