Vetus improves on escape, vent hatches

SCHIEDAM ~ Boat systems maker Vetus has launched a line of line of ventilation and escape hatches _ suitable for deck thicknesses of up to 75 mm _ that will greatly improve comfort onboard. The hatches come with both a roller blind, plus a fly screen. One side of the unit contains an automatic roller blind. The other side features an automatic roller fly screen..

The hatch can be blacked out by pushing the handle all the way over to one side. Alternatively, push it to the opposite side and the blind retracts and the fly screen covers the aperture. Separating the magnetic clasp in the handles allows both the blind and the flyscreen to retract automatically.

All hatch frames are made from off-white, powder-coated aluminum, designed to last last for years without discoloring. The blind and fly screen are made from UV-stabilized, white PVC-coated material. A simple to install finishing strip can be trimmed to size and used to cover the deck aperture up to 75 mm thickness. Vetus says the blinds are particularly suitable for hatches with corner radii of 43 mm or less. VETUS combination roller blind/fly screens are available for all square Altus and Magnus hatches but can also be customized upon request. The maximum blind length is 62 cm.

VETUS has been developing and making marine engines, generators and technical equipment for recreational craft and small commercial vessels for over 50 years. It markets almost 4000 products worldwide.
