Equipment Access

The larger opening provides an easily accessible means for equipment to be installed or removed from a building. Equipment access roof hatches are available in steel, aluminum and stainless steel construction and in one standard single leaf size [Type F, 48” x 48” (1219mm x 1219mm)]. Special single leaf sizes (Type SS) are available and are recommended for widths up to 5’0” (1524mm). For larger openings, specify double leaf construction (Type D). For best operation, specify aluminum construction for single leaf hatches over 3’0” (914mm) wide and double leaf hatches over 7’0” (2134mm) in width.

Type D Roof Hatch-Equipment Access

A type D roof hatch provides a convenient way to install or remove large pieces of equipment from a building. Equipment access roof scuttles are available in steel, aluminum, and stainless steel construction. Hatches are custom fabricated to meet your size requirements (Note: larger sizes may require aluminum construction for proper operation).

Type F Roof Hatch-Equipment Access

Type F roof hatches, 48" x 48"(1220mm x 1220mm), are ideal for applications requiring roof access larger than the typical 36" x 30" opening. A type F roof hatch is commonly used to remove or install small pieces of equipment in a building.

Thermally Broken Roof Hatch

Thermally broken roof hatches feature R-20+ insulation and a frame and cover design that minimizes heat transfer between interior and exterior metal surfaces. The result is a product that resists harmful condensation and provides superior energy efficiency. The Thermally Broken design is available in all standard BILCO single leaf sizes (S, E, NB, L, F, GS*) and special single leaf sizes are available upon request. (Patent Pending)
