electric roof hatchElectric control components

The Gorter GT35 system consists of a control module and two powerful electrical motors that are installed on either side of the cover. This is also to control the roof hatch when opening and closing it in poor weather conditions. The cover of the roof hatch can be immobilised in any position you want. The system is available as standard with a compact control panel that is connected to the control module with a signal cable. The control panel is no bigger than 7 x 1 cm and can easily be fastened to the finishing around the roof hatch or on the wall. The system is also available on request with a wireless remote. One option is to connect the system to the emergency power supply for opening and closing the door hatch cover in the event of a power failure.


Controlling the roof hatch with sensors

An electric roof hatch can also be controlled by the extra contacts on the control module with signals from sensors such as a rain sensor, storm detector, wind gauge, fire alarm centre and smoke detector.


Both roof hatch and scissor stair are electrically controlled

If you want to proceed with automating your roof access, the Gorter combination of electric roof hatch with electric scissor stair is a very nice solution. The advantage of this roof access is that the whole combination is completely out of view when not in use. The scissor stair fit flush with the ceiling and you can use the entire floor space in the room underneath.
