Roof hatches for roof maintenance
It is essential for buildings to have a roof access point or a roof hatch to ensure that maintenance can be performed on the roof and rooftop installations, such as air-conditioning systems. As servicemen require a safe way to access the roof, it is vital to take the following points into account when constructing roof access points:
- 1. Installing the roof hatch at least four metres away from the edges of the roof, ensuring that the roof hatch is in the roof's safe zone.
- 2. Ensure that the roof hatch is safe to go through by installing a ladder, retractable ladder or a fixed stairs.
- 3. Make sure that you take the servicemen into account by installing a roof hatch that is big enough for them and their tools to fit through.
- 4. Ensure you have roof safety system in place that servicemen can immediately hook into.
