The Bilco Co.’s enhanced-performance roof hatch meets LEED standards for recycled content and is more than 48% more energy-efficient than standard roof hatches.

The enhanced performance roof hatch is designed for buildings seeking a LEED certification and for buildings located in areas with extreme temperature conditions. The roof hatch features a cover and curb that are fully insulated with a two-inch polyisocyanurate thermal insulation board for superior performance. This insulation achieves an R-value of 12 and is ozone-friendly to protect the environment.

In addition, the cover features a specially designed EPDM finger-type gasket that ensures a positive seal with the curb to reduce air permeability and ensure energy performance. Now the standard in European markets, the roof hatch has been tested and approved to BS EN standards for weathertightness, sound rating, and security. BD+C
