Jury and assessment criteria

Assessment of Gorter’s innovation:

The new Gorter roof hatch prevents heat losses to the outside, making thermal bridges a thing of the past. Both the lid and curb are fully insulated. This also provides a good heat resistance. There is a double seal between the lid and the curb, thus creating an additional insulating cavity. The construction is robust, stable and durable. The snow load is 2,000 kg per m². The hatch is suitable for applications on the highest buildings, also in areas subject to gale-force winds. In short, the roof hatch is robust, stable, wind resistant and waterproof, highly insulated, easy to handle, durable, secure and lockable. The best possible roof over your head.
