Most frequent questions our customers ask.
We can provide a floor hatch with a recessed tray to take flooring infills from ½ inch to 4” allowing the door to blend in with the surrounding flooring whether it be wooden decking, ceramic tiles or concrete. There is a brushed stainless-steel top trim but if desired a hidden edge hatch frame can be manufactured.
All our floor hatches can be manufactured with a fire rating of up to 4 hours for integrity to BS EN 1634 and UL-EU Approved.
Floor doors can be made to be acoustic rated to reduce the sound transmission between floors ideal in musical venues, concert halls and other areas.
Our custom floor hatches can be offered with gas spring assisted opening, electric opening and hydraulic actuators. Gas spring are generally for smaller sizes while electric is ideal for residential properties. Larger floor doors will need to be operated by hydraulic cylinders which are operated by a hand pump or an electrically driven pump. We can also offer lift out covers where lids can be hoisted out.
Our floor hatches have an integral drainage channel whereby any water that passes through our double EPDM seals do not fall directly into the opening, it is collected in the drainage channel which can be supplied with a ¾” pipe adaptor to drain the water off or away from any sensitive equipment.
Our engineers can design for most scenarios where a slow-moving wheel load is present including H-20 and HS-20 equivalent loadings. Point loads can also be accommodated whereby a single point of pressure is likely to be applied. If you have a PSF requirement then let us know!
