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 pitch of 30°.


Access to the roof

The Gorter combination of roof hatch and Large Electric scissor stair provides generous access to the roof and is available for ceiling heights of max. 3,000 or 3,500 mm. The roof hatch has an opening of 700 x 1,400 mm.


Large type: max. ceiling height 3,000 mm

Large H type: max. ceiling height 3,500 mm


Electric scissor stairs

A powerful motor drives the Gorter electric scissor stairs. The system comes with a control unit and a wireless RF remote control as standard.


Scissor stair ensures free space under the roof hatch

Roof hatches combined with an electric 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.


Fully thermally broken

The Gorter RHT roof hatch has a fully thermally broken curb and cover, and a proven high insulation value. This minimises the chance of condensation forming and guarantees energy cost savings.
