How Does Vault Pro Build Emergency Pro Escape Hatches?
We start with Prime Grade American Steel that is cut and bent to exacting specifications to match the client’s requirements. Frames for the emergency hatches are squared before they are full seam welded and reinforced with backing for locking bolts and ¾” step systems.
The doors begin as hand cut
and custom fit ¼” steel fronts that are also reinforced with
guide rails and step systems to perfectly match the frame.
After adding appropriate fire insulation, the locking mechanism and
internal releases are installed using very heavy duty steel
guides. The door is then hinged to the frame using Vault
Pro’s own 1-1/4” diameter seamless ¼” tubing and ¾” solid
cold rolled steel bar to far exceed any stresses the door
After quality inspection for fit and function, the Pro Escape Hatches are painted, fit for gaskets and final inspected before being packed for shipping.
Hatches ordered for a government facility ready for delivery.
Emergency Pro Escape Hatches feature eight locking bolts with internal release system.
All of our Hatches are built to
exceed the FEMA 320, 361 and ICC-500 recommended standards and
are simple to install and easy enough to use that a five year
old can operate them in the case of an emergency.
