The Escape Hatch

Hatches add another layer of security to your safe room by creating an additional entry or exit. We offer door skins from ¼” up to 1 ¼” thick stainless steel.

  • Escape hatches allow you to exit your safe room quickly and provide the security of having no entry from the outside.
  • 2-Way hatches allow entry and exit and offer several options for entry security. Hatches can be mounted in wood, concrete, or block walls.
  • Floor hatches go in the ceiling of a vault room and have air-spring struts for increased usability.

Why choose a hatch?

  • Having another way out or in is important – storms, panic situations, or large vault rooms are reasons to install a hatch
  • Having hidden entry/exit is important. Hatches are easy to hide behind bookcases, desks, and under rugs
