Walk on Glass Access Hatch

Walk on Glass Access Hatch


Surespan manufactured this HIACE/GWO aluminium, single leaf, flush floor access hatch for a company in London to fit structural opening 2600 x 650mm (hinged on the 2700mm side) recessed with TripleLite ‘Walk-on-glass’ infill divided into two panes. The lid is operated by two 24v DC actuators fitted to the underside of the lid.

The TripleLite 34mm thick glass to suit pedestrian domestic loading only, 1.4 kN concentrated and 1.5 kN m2 UDL and a U value of 5.4 w/m2k.

The patent frame with unique hidden hinges incorporates an EPDM unbroken seal to help prevent the ingress of dirt and moisture.

This access cover is not watertight, it is self-draining. Should any water pass the seals it will be dispersed via an integral drainage channel, which can be fitted with an optional internal or external ¾ inch flexible hose adaptor (for connection to drain by others).
