You may need to improve the functionality of your condo building. There are many options to make your condominium more functional, including adding fire protection systems and automatic sliding doors. You can also update the windows. Another way to improve the functionality of your condominium is to install a roof opening frame also known as roof hatch.
Most building owners have hatches installed, whether they are commercial or residential. This is because it allows them to gain access to their roofs with ease. To ensure that you get the best hatch for your condo, there are a few things you should know.

What is a Roof Hatch and how does it work?
Roof hatches are horizontal doors that cover roof openings. They provide access to ship stairs, interior ladders, or service stairs. The building's interior dimensions will determine the size of the climbing apparatus. To reach the hatch, you can use a service stairway or ladder if the space is limited.
Choosing Between Equipment and Personnel Hatches
You can have at least two different hatch options for your condominium building. One is for personnel and the other is for equipment use. The difference between them is that the personnel hatch can only accommodate an average-sized person. However, a time will arrive when you will need to bring up large and heavy equipment that will not fit through the personnel hatch.
