Roof hatch with fixed stairs

Access to the roof with style

Gorter’s standard combinations of a roof hatch with fixed stairs are not just stylish in their appearance but also demonstrably safe and reliable. The combination is ideal for application in situations where the roof is frequently accessed or where access must at all times be immediately available.


The roof hatch with fixed stairs can be supplied in nine different combinations with roof hatch dimensions ranging from 1000x1500 mm to 1000x3000 mm. There are two versions of the fixed stairs; the GS50 and the GS55. The GS50 is the shorter version of the GS55 stairs, which were primarily designed to be used with lower ceiling heights.
