HOUDINI DECK HATCHES
The world renowned and instantly recognisable Houdini deck hatch has been in production for over fifty years.
Our hatches are robustly constructed using quality materials and are fitted with toughened glass. When compared to acrylic glazing, used in most deck hatches, toughened glass will not scratch as easily or suffer UV degradation.
With an above deck height of a mere 25mm these hatches are extremely streamlined and cause minimum obstruction on the deck.
Our standard hatches are silver anodised, however frames can also be black or gold anodised, or powder coated to a specific colour.
Houdini hatches are CE marked for compliance with the ISO12216 standard.

ELECTRICALLY-OPENING TRADITIONAL BARGE HATCH
The aluminium framed 'Traditional Barge Hatch' has been designed to encompass the latest design trends of maximising the glass area and minimising the visible frames. The skylight hatch comes as a complete unit ready to be screwed or bolted down to the existing deck structure and is manufactured to customer's individual sizes.
Remote controlled electric opener
Due to the common problem of hatches being fitted well above head height and also the issues with opening these heavy hatches, this 'Traditional Barge Hatch' has been fitted with a remote controlled electric opener, offering a range of openings from 0 to 400mm. This
means it is easy to adjust to allow almost permanent ventilation of the barge. In the event that the hatch needs to be fully opened for easy access of large items of furniture, a 'fast pin' can be easily removed to allow the hatch to be manually fully opened.
Broken glass easily replaced
The hatch is fitted with double glazed units to minimize condensation and can be easily replaced at a future date without any costly requirements of removing the hatch from the boat.
