Surespan SLH sliding roof hatches and sliding glass roof lights provide many advantages over standard roof access hatches. The sliding access hatch is ideal where there is a height restrictions or in areas with high risk of wind. They are also ideal for access to roof terraces via a staircase.
Surespan sliding covers are manufactured with a thermally broken lid and upstand as standard. The sliding mechanism can be sold with fixed rails or internal telescopic rails.
The lid is filled with 50mm of CFC and HCFC free insulation with a U-value of 0.43 W/m²K. Surespan can also provide bespoke solutions such as our glazed sliding hatch over a fixed roof window.

Surespan offer sliding roof hatches, which can be glazed and electrically operated. This design was produced because of the height restrictions, which precluded our standard hinged hatch.
All Surespan SLH Sliding Roof Hatches are offered with a cost option using thermally broken extruded sections, offering clients excellent energy conservation properties and substantially reducing internal condensation or frost formation.
This in turn reduces thermal conductivity and consequently the heat loss due to heat conduction through the roof hatch frame.
This can also be applied to Surespan's SRHG Roof Hatches.
All Surespan electrically operated roof hatches are available using solar technology, offering clients an environmentally friendly alternative.
A 12V solar panel is fitted either onto or nearby the roof hatch, harnessing solar energy to charge it's batteries and allowing the hatch to automatically open and close using a completely wireless system. This can be operated by either a wireless switch or remote control. It's batteries are fitted with a conditioned monitoring feature which sounds an alarm if they are running low or indicate a fault.
Additional options including being linked up to the building's Fire Alarm System (FAS) or Building Management System (BMS) are available. Multiple roof hatches can be operated by one solar panel.
This technology can also be applied to Surespan's SRHG glazed roof hatches.
