Seaglaze Marine Windows new flush deck hatches are available either flat or cambered with an outer frame made of GRP to avoid corrosion issues.

The design has been developed to aid installation with several sizes available, which have all been CE tested and approved.

Our new flush deck hatches have been specifically designed over the last three years, after reviewing the issues our customers have experienced with other hatch manufacturers products, explained Seaglaze MD, Alastair Clayton.

The opening lid inner frame is made from anodised aluminium with a tough powder coat finish and a matching inner coaming that can be trimmed to suit various deck thicknesses.


The lids can be supplied as 12mm grey acrylic with a black printed border or as a 2mm aluminium plate ready for teak to be fitted on the top surface.

The hatches have a drainage hole in each corner of the frame and are supplied with drainage bocks and plugs that can be fitted during installation to each hole to allow a spigot or cover to be added and connected to the drainage system.

Other features include a high-recovery silicone sponge seal, two gas struts for each hatch allowing it to open between 85 to 90, two stainless steel internal lockable handles which are flush and can also be operated from the topside and adjustable hidden hinges to achieve perfect alignment.

The hatches are available in cambers up to 12mm as standard with cambers over 12mm also available.

The outer frames are flat and the lid can be either flat or cambered to suit the deck and on top of the standard CE Marked range, we are also able to produce Custom sizes if required explained Alastair.
