SG Single Hinged Hatch Safety Grate
The Hinged Hatch Safety Grate smoothly rotates 90 degrees to its open position and locks in place by a hold-open rod. The aluminum grate has an OSHA safety orange finish. Hardware components are made of 316 stainless steel to withstand corrosive waste water environments.
Features: The Hinged Hatch Safety Grate provides continuous safety assurance in both its closed and open positions. When closed, the grate system allows people to move freely around the hatch opening without fear of falling into the opening. Also, it allows visibility for inspections and accessibility for limited maintenance and float adjustments below the grate. When open, it acts as an additional barrier to the access door opening. Since the hatch cover cannot be shut without first closing the Hinged Hatch Safety Grate, this system insures that the grate is in position when the next person opens the hatch cover. Since the grate does not provide load reinforcing for the cover, a damaged or missing grate will not jeopardize the function of the cover in carrying the specified load capacity of the hatch.
Retrofit: The Hinged Hatch Safety Grate can be retrofitted into existing openings. It can be made to fit the custom dimensions of most floor access hatches.
