The “Hatch Alert” is designed to alert personnel that the roof top opening or hatch is in the open position.
A very bright, red, xenon strobe light emitting 60 double flashes per minute is activated as soon as the hatch is lifted upward 30 degrees. The strobe automatically turns “Off” when the hatch is in the closed position.
Mounted on the inside surface of the hatch with its magnetic base, the Model RHM-2P-R-S features a built-in tilt switch that is located in its battery compartment. This switch automatically triggers the strobe to its flashing mode when the hatch is lifted upward. Two (2) new D-Cell alkaline batteries provide 50-60 flashing hours.
The “Hatch Alert” is not intended to replace roof top safety initiatives or hatch safety rail systems but rather to be used in conjunction with them. The flashing signal is an additional alert that the hatch is open.
Can be used on any vertical door opening to warn of an opening and that care should be exercised.
