5000 Series - Light Duty Aluminum & Stainless Steel Floor Hatch


Aluminum and stainless steel floor hatch to give easy access to concealed services under hard floors with pedestrian traffic.

"I am really pleased with how the Eagle Church project came out. The installation went very well. The 5000 Series floor hatch looks great. It pretty much "disappears" when closed and blends right in with the surrounding flooring. Thank you Chuck for all your help in selecting the correct Howe Green product, it was a pleasure working with you".

Carl Verh - Facility Manager Eagle Church Whitestone, IN
