SCHIEDAM – As VETUS made its glazing products for over 50 years, the company acquired a huge amount of knowledge, experience and expertise. To maintain its leadership, VETUS constantly monitors and upgrades its wiper systems, flush hatches and custom windows manufacturing.
F hatches feature a meticulously engineered construction that ensures a flush fit and silky smooth hatch-deck transition. The 12mm ‘dark smoke’ acrylic yields a ‘VIP-privacy-glass’ vibe in a polished, anodized aluminum frame.
The FGHF series distinguishes itself from the FGH series with flush-mounted handles, stays and hinges. Nothing protrudes! Nothing gets snagged! The larger sizes have a handle socket and can be opened from the outside by a winch handle. The flush design reduces wind noise, is easy to clean and maintenance-free. FGHF hatches are engineered for cut-outs with a corner radius of 43 mm.
The roller blind-and-fly screen combination, designed for escape and ventilation deck hatches, has been updated. The HMB design is now fitted with a modified clasp for durability, a stronger and easily adjustable spring to manually reset the screen’s tension. Also, a redesign of the guide system ensures smooth use.
The PL series
A very shallow aluminum edge, combined with the clamping mechanism ensures a very low-profile portlight even when fitted in glass itself. Like all VETUS items, the PL series is thoroughly tested and CE-approved for use in A1 locations. What’s more: all PL portlights are fitted with the new ergonomic PPL2 knobs that are supplied standard with a removable fly screen.
