This Baier 18" Round, Flush to Deck, Hex Centerbolt Hatch uses their patented Strongback system. Baier's Strongback uses only two moving parts to secure the hatch cover in place. Far superior to more complicated hatch closure systems because of its simpler, stronger and more reliable water tightness. The design is infinitely adjustable from topside. Spare parts are readily available and field replacement is not complicated. Both the hex centerbolt and grab handles are recessed and do not create snags for feet, nets, lines or hardware. Hatch covers, Strongbacks, and deck rings are available in your choice of cast aluminum or cast steel.

STRENGTH, SIMPLICITY and SECURITY The ultimate in strength and simplicity, Baier's original patented strongback system has only two moving parts to secure the hatch cover to the deck. It is superior to other more complicated hatch closure systems in that it is simpler, stronger, more reliably watertight, infinitely adjustable from topside, and more easily serviced (parts are readily available and replaced in the field). Importantly, the recessed hex centerbolt and grab handles offer no snags for nets, lines or hardware.

MATERIALS The majority of the Classic Model BFH hatch cover product line is available in both cast aluminum and cast steel. Steel Cover assemblies and deck rings are hot dip galvanized for superior corrosion resistance. No other flush hatch is available in cast steel (which is stronger, more durable, and more impact resistant when compared to iron hatches, especially in cold climates). The deck ring is available in galvanized mild steel (for welding into steel decks), or cast aluminum (for welding into aluminum decks or bolting to fiberglass or wood decks). Cast stainless steel hatches and fabricated stainless deck rings are available by special order.
