A Bilco 1270 x 1820mm D-50T roof access hatch has been installed on The Water Well Building at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk. The building is built into the landscape and houses a borehole, which provides drinking water for the facility, and Bilco’s D-50T roof access hatch provides an easy means of access for maintenance.
Danny Galvin, Quantity Surveyor, VINCI Construction UK, explains: “We have used Bilco products a number of times in the past and know that we will be supplied with a quality product that meets the demands of its environment.”
“On a building where people will need to gain regular access to a space for ongoing maintenance, an access hatch that is easy to use and suitable for moving large equipment through is ideal and the Bilco D-50T fitted the bill perfectly.”
Compression spring operators make the D-50T easy to use with one hand, while the automatic hold-open arm locks mean that the doors will remain in the open position whilst equipment and personnel pass through the hatch safely.
The D-50T roof access hatch is built from corrosion resistant materials to provide many years of reliable performance, and that its weathertightness and energy efficiency is never compromised.
