Thermally Broken Sliding Hatch
Surespan supplied a thermally broken sliding hatch to California State University, USA. This large 3302 (130") x 1016mm (40") solid top electrically operated hatch travels its length on tracks fixed to the roof. It's unique design, with cam operated hinged rear flap, improves not only thermal efficiency, but also security of the hatch.
Brush seals around the front and side ensure that no roof debris can interfere with the mechanism and the external fixed rail provides an enhanced support for the sliding cover. The thermally broken lid is filled with polyisocyanurate insulation offering an excellent U-value of 0.43 W/m2K. Moreover, Surespan's sliding roof hatches are designed to seal themselves when closing.Find out more about Surespan sliding hatches >>
