All Gorter roof hatches and combinations are safety tested to the most stringent EN standards and are supplied 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. The Gorter retractable and removable stairs/ladders such as the scissor stairs and ladder can be locked easily when in use.
