Gorter roof hatches with scissor stairs provide practical and safe access to flat roofs for maintenance work or other purposes. The roof hatch can be installed on flat roofs with a maximum slope of 30°.


Access to lift machine rooms

The Gorter combination of roof hatch and type XL scissor stair was developed in part to reach higher lift machine rooms and utility rooms. The scissor stair is supplied with an Aboma certificate for access to (lift) machine rooms in accordance with EN-ISO 14122-3. The wide stair treads (480 mm) and larger roof hatch with an opening of 1,000 x 1,500 mm simplify taking materials to upper areas/roof.


Scissor stair ensures free space under the roof hatch

Roof hatches combined with a scissor stair are ideal for applications where occasional but also frequent access to the roof is required. When the scissor stair is folded, you always have free space under the hatch.
