Houdini Marine has been manufacturing marine windows for over 30 years and the Houdini Hatch has a worldwide reputation for robust construction, quality materials and economic pricing.
Houdini hatches are available in 6 sizes. The Houdini Super 50 deck hatch (500mm x 500mm) is the standard deck hatch.
The standard specification:
- Anodised aluminium
- Alloy safety bars
- 6mm grey tinted toughened glass
- Stay arm
Other specifications are available for special order and are priced accordingly. These include colour polyester powder coating, matt gold, clear glass and adjustable stay arms. Chrome or polished finishes are not available.
All hatches must be fitted to a flat surface and bedded down on a good quality non-setting mastic. The outer flange is drilled and countersunk for no.8 self-tapping screws or M5 machine screws.
Backing Trims are available for purchase – flat or box shapes. Inner backing trim for the deckhead is not necessarily required if the hatch can be screwed securely into the deck. If an inner backing trim is used there are three types available. Type 3 is to be installed by experts only
Materials and Construction
Frames are constructed in marine grade aluminium (HE9). All joints are sealed against ingress of water, fish-plated and screwed. The seal is of extruded neoprene or similar. The hatches are glazed with 6mm tinted toughened glass with the exception of the Type 6 which has 8mm.
