Roof Hatches

The Access Panel Company has been manufacturing roof hatches for over ten years. From small individual hatches for maintenance and inspection, we also manufacture larger hatches for access to machinery and plant that may have to be lifted in and out of industrial buildings. We manufacture hatches with integrated upstands or to minimise site work, to fit over an existing kerb. Most of our hatches can simply be lifted into position, screwed down and weathered. There is no site assembly work except to add a padlock when finished. We recommend an electric operation for larger or frequently used hatches. For example in domestic use to access roof gardens. We supply hand held controllers so operation is as simple as opening an electric garage door.
