The TRAD Loading Hatch offers safe access and materials handling within the housebuilding industry. TRAD Loading Hatch promotes safe access and loading between different floor levels, without the need of an external scaffold. The TRAD Loading Hatch recesses into the building plot floors. The hatch frames secure in place with timber screws which makes the access point safe and secure.
All hatches also have bespoke holes cut in the frames. These safely lash any access ladder in place, adding security and safety.
The TRAD Loading Hatch has a unique slotted design. This allow building materials to be passed from floor to floor without large open holes and can be used with TRAD Deck system.
The hatch frame is polyester powder-coated bright yellow, making it highly visible. TRAD Loading Hatch boasts a bright yellow external frame with a bright red cover door making it really stand out from the rest of the floor.
The TRAD Loading Hatch is available in two sizes, 550mm & 600mm wide, the slightly smaller one fits within floor joists and can be used anywhere within the floor space (providing it’s between the joists). The larger version is typically used in the stair void.
