Unlike traditional tip-up hatches, the Slidewise Roof Hatch opens horizontally so it is unaffected by wind gusts. This reduces maintenance and replacement costs while improving safety because the panel won’t slam open or closed. One-handed operation allows personnel to keep a hand on the ladder at all times.
Can be installed on existing curbs without the need to modify roofing materials. Features corrosion-resistant aluminum construction, stainless steel hardware, and a full-perimeter EPDM weather seal.
