Literature Available On Bomar Deck Hatches
A new brochure describing the c o m p a n y ' s line of flush deck hatches is available from Bomar, Inc. These hatches feature a heavy cast aluminum top with reinforcing ribs and a y^-inch-thick base ring. Deck openings of 20-inch diameter and 15 by 24-inch are available, and inside or outside opening is standard.
All cast-aluminum parts are made of high-strength, highly corrosion-resistant Almag-35; all hardware is stainless steel. The Bomar design prevents any metal-to-metal c o n t a c t between top and base when closed. Parts are isolated by a neoprene gasket and nylon friction pads. This prevents freeze-up in highly corrosive environments. The hatch cover is also available with a mild steel base for welding to steel decks.
These hatches have been used on passenger-carrying vessels, and are approved by the U.S. Coast Guard for emergency escape purposes. For a free copy of the brochure, which also contains specifications on the company's offshore windows and portlights, write to John C. Zurich, product manager, Bomar, Inc., P.O. Box 314, Charlestown, N.H. 03603.
