Safer Roof Hatch for Use on All Models of SCAFCO Grain Bins

Industry standards updated for a much safer entry and exit

Safer Roof Hatch for Use on All Models of SCAFCO Grain Bins

SCAFCO Grain Systems, a manufacturer of grain silos for worldwide use, will introduce a new, safer roof access hatch for their entire line of corrugated and galvanized steel storage bins.

The new roof hatch is appreciably larger than the previous trapezoidal hatch and opens to the right rather than uphill on the roof, facilitating safer entry and egress from the bin. The hatch’s inside dimension measures 18” x 30”. The new hatch will be conveniently placed adjacent to the roof ladder cleats or roof stairs.

The new roof hatch meets or exceeds emerging standards that have been in development for over ten years by a committee led by Daniel Wambeke, SCAFCO Grain Systems Vice President. The informal group made up of industry professionals developed the standards for the new hatch in response to critical safety concerns still unaddressed in current grain bin designs.
