Our steel hatch is manufactured by a Utah steel fabricator. The hatch features internal hinges, self-rescue capabilities, and the lift assist is shock dampened to allow the door to close in a controlled manner. This provides safety from injury while closing the hatch. The user merely pulls the hatch closed with a short length of rope from a safe distance down the stairway. The inside dimensions of the hatch are 31 in x31 in. The door is weather proof and vandal resistant. A closed cell foam gasket makes an effective seal against biological aerosols and fallout. The internal latch will resist 3 tons of lifting force.
