Carolus Borromeus College in Helmond has two Gorter roof hatches on its roof. Made from a thermal insulated and separated aluminium construction, the roof hatches measure 1000 x 1500 mm. The roof hatches are supplied with a burglar-resistant 3 point lock.
Gorter roof hatches in combination with a ladder, scissor stairs or fixed stairs
- The push-up ladder is made of anodised aluminium, with 2 fixed hooks, one of which can be locked to prevent misuse
- Scissor stairs are supplied with a hook and eye operating system. They are provided with a stair guide system and 2 telescopic handrails, one of which can be locked with a padlock (not supplied)
- Fixed stairs have brackets to secure them to the floor and in the ceiling opening. Two handrails, complete with uprights
Assembly of the roof hatches
The roof hatches and stair/ladders are mounted and secured separately. The roof hatches and stairs/ladders are made of aluminium. Because of this, the assembly is not such a hard job and in many cases, provided there is enough space, no crane is required. Anodised aluminium is highly resistant to corrosion which makes the roof hatches extremely durable.
