Hatch Defender - Non-Penetrating, Non-Attaching Roof Hatch Fall Protection Guardrail System
The Hatch Defender is a non-penetrating roof hatch fall protection system. Constructed of galvanized steel, the Hatch Defender system feature a self-closing gate for added safety.
For installation, this passive fall safety solution is first placed on the roof hatch curb. Then, the rail on the gate side and its opposite are tightened until the Hatch Defender fits snugly against the curb. The top rail and mid rail adjust as the sections are tightened.
A Simple Solution for Roof Hatch Fall Protection
The Hatch Defender creates an OSHA-compliant barrier for permanent installations. The unique design of our roof hatch defender system eliminates the need to attach the rail to either the hatch or the roof surface, making installation easier and eliminating leaks in the roof surface or the roof hatch.
