A roof access hatch must be equipped with a reliable and safe mechanism; its handling must be easy if manual or electrically operated. It should be easy to install, enjoy a robust structure to relay efficient insulation, withstand sound, and be fortified to ensure reliable security. To prevent the possibility of heat loss— the roof access hatch bears a coat of insulation on its cover and upstand. Hatches with high insulation values are preferred in modern constructions, especially in institutions of learning and those providing health care services.
Both flat roof access hatches and smoke vents can be installed as part of a fire escape plan. It is easy to install them in specific locations such as stairwells and corridors to cover various scenarios, including fire emergency and smoke buildup. Hinged frames on hatches open up to allow people and equipment access to the roof, and smoke ventilators provide safe and immediate passage.
