Gorter Hatches offers fire rated roof access hatches for bushfire escape bunkers for added safety during bushfires.
Bushfires in Australia are not only frequent, but can have devastating effects on life and property. However, by installing a Gorter hatch on the bunker, one can achieve a 120-minute certified fire rating.
Gorter Hatches offers certified fire rated access solutions to suit any application including fire rated roof hatches, fire rated wall/ceiling doors, fire rated floor doors and fire rated ladders.
Gorter's fire rated roof hatches are manufactured from galvanised steel and have a 120-minute fire rating.
Scissor stairs/ attic ladder, type EI-60 provides a fire rated partition in ceilings too. In combination with an aluminium roof hatch measuring 700mm x 1400mm, a fire rated roof access can be created. All of Gorter's fire rated hatches are certified and certificates can be provided on request.
Fire rating and smoke class are attested and comply with all Australian Standards (Fire – AS1530-4. Smoke AS1530-4).
