Fixed rails are generally used for larger sizes up to 3000 x 3000 however we can manufacture larger sizes in certain circumstances. The fixed rails provide a maximum clear opening ideal for equipment, tools and personnel access. The external rail is fixed down onto the roof and provides structural support fotr the lid.
