Gorter® has been specialising in roof hatches for over 20 years.

Virtually all roof hatches can be combined with a ladder, step ladder or scissor stairs.
Exceptional insulation, soundproof and burglary-resistant

RHT roof hatches can be used as escape hatches, but in most situations, they provide a convenient access to roof terraces, cooling installations, lift machine rooms, window cleaning installations, solar collectors, and other facilities on rooftops. The RHT roof hatches can be installed on flat, insulated or non-insulated roofs made from concrete, steel or wood with a maximum roof pitch of 30°.

In addition to the standard ladders, scissor stairs of fixed staircases, the RHT roof hatches can also be supplied with electric operation. The roof hatch is fitted at the factory with two powerful electric motors. Motors can also be subsequently installed on most roof hatch models. The roof hatches can also be supplied with electric scissor stairs.
All Gorter roof hatches and combinations are safety tested to the most stringent EN standards and are supplied where appropriate with a TÜV NORD certificate, Aboma safety mark and KOMO® certificate.
One of the safety features is the hand rail in a yellow finish characteristic of Gorter, which provides a secure grip when accessing or exiting the roof. Another safety feature is the automatic locking in the open position making sure the roof hatch cannot slam down shut unexpectedly.
