Delta Sliding Hatches

Our Delta sliding hatches are light, self-supporting hatches that are easy to operate for spans of up to 15 meters. They are often used for tug-pushed dumb barges.


  • Can easily be moved manually since they are slightly lighter than the regular slide hatch covers (GL)
  • Lightweight thanks to self-supporting pile wall construction without compromising strength
  • Require little maintenance as they contain only a limited number of mechanical parts
  • Spans of up to 15 meters
