Surespan SLH sliding roof hatches have many advantages over standard 90° opening roof access hatches. The sliding roof hatches are ideal where there is a height restriction or risk of high wind ensuring your roof hatch is operable in all weather conditions. Additionally, the sliding roof hatch can be utilized for airflow control or ventilation. http://www.surespancovers.com/roof-slh.htm
Don’t skimp on a roof hatch. More and more, we’re including roof terraces for the homes we design. The detailing and waterproofing of the required roof access hatch is a big deal and we want a product that provides weatherproofing and security for generations. It’s also got to look good. Our favorite is the Bilco roof hatch which is available in large sizes to accommodate an entire run of stairs.
