Blommaert aluminium sliding hatch covers meet all bulk and inland navigation needs. They are tailor-made for the vessel, durable, easy to maintain plus, thanks to their low weight, easy to operate manually. The more panels on different levels, the further they can be opened.
EPDM seals between the levels keep the hold dry, and the hatch covers have guide wheels on only one side to compensate for differences in hold width. In addition, they can be easily stacked using hydraulic cylinders.
Our Delta type sliding hatch covers are lightweight, self-supporting and easy-to-operate aluminium hatch covers for spans up to 15 metres. They are often used on tug-pushed barges.

Our Smooth type (abbreviated to ‘GL’) sliding hatch covers have a smooth surface. The hatch ridge features a walkway in non-slip checker plate. The panels slide telescopically into one another on the wheels under them.
The HD pile planking and HD-GL stacking hatch covers only take up a single level, making them perfectly stackable. This allows for an extra-large loading and unloading opening of up to 90%. Stacking hatch covers are flexible hatch covers which, depending on the number of hatch covers stacked and the staggering of the other hatch covers, enable a customised opening to be achieved depending on the application or weather conditions.
