Deck Hatch Cover

Reliable and strong protection of equipment

Equipment stored in mission bays directly below deck is often of mission-critical nature, making demands on the hatch cover to protect the valuable equipment underneath while being fast-acting to allow for fast and safe access to and deployment of the equipment.

SH Defence has applied its vast experience in designing and manufacturing hatches and side doors for naval applications in the design of this hydraulically operated deck hatch cover, which is perfect for any naval vessel regardless of its mission.

Complete system, ready to go

The hatch cover system is supplied complete with coaming, hatch, control panel and HPU. The hatch cover is embedded in the vessel’s weather or poop deck, providing a flush surface on deck and weatherproof sealing to prevent water ingress.

The hatch cover is locked by means of battens. Hatch cover, hinges and HPU are ready for class approvell.

Configurable for warfare

If the hatch cover is of tactical importance, it can be delivered in a redundant warfare-ready setup with redundant valves, control system, HPU and actuator and a hydraulic outlet to the missile container from the HPU.

If fast opening is required, the hatch cover can also be configured for specified opening/closing speeds, and it is possible to establish radio remote control or an interface to the combat management system (CMS).
