EJ has a broad offering of access hatch products available in aluminum, steel and ductile iron. Our hatches are designed to provide easy and secure access to belowground and below-floor installations — used in areas such as sewer pump stations, water treatment plants, gas valve vaults, water meter pits, water valve vaults, telephone and electric vaults, industrial plant pits, ventilation shafts, fuel storage pits, de-icing control facilities, storm drains, monitoring wells and collection pits.
Easy-opening aluminum access hatch designs are load rated for pedestrian and non-vehicular traffic. Standard features include all stainless steel hardware, cover-opening lift spring, hold-open arm locks, slam lock and removable T-style lift handle. Options include a padlock clip, and Safety Sure Grip slip-resistant surface.
Ductile iron design access hatches are load rated for heavy duty traffic, and extra heavy duty airport traffic. These hinged hatch access assemblies are typically installed in high traffic areas, airports and ports. Our airport rated hinged hatch provides a secure and easy access point to underground utility structures. The standard mechanical strut reduces the lifting force of the cover to less than 50 pounds. Standard features include: Lift Assist, MPIC® multi-tool pick bar, EON LOCK® and bolting. Covers open to 105°, safety catch and removal of cover at 90°. Optional features include: ductile iron grate (instead of cover), special lettered covers, top or bottom flange frame, security bolting, safety grate and water resistant design.
Our SAFE HATCH® safety grates provide OSHA-compliant fall-through protection. The doors can't be closed unless the safety grates have been put back in place. Safety orange grates create a visual barrier around the pit to help create awareness of the hazard.
ERMATIC® modular covers by EJ are a new and innovative solution that provide easier accessibility. ERMATIC is a highly engineered modular system which can be customized to fit any underground vault dimension or cover configuration, for a wide variety of applications. The complete line includes load-ratings from pedestrian use to applications such as airfields and seaports. For particularly high wheel loads, an extra heavy-duty airport version is available.
