About Features Resources Specification & FAQs

Introducing the first product of its kind



Our exclusive design has been brought to the market to allow safer and easier access between floors during the building process. We’ve ensured we have created a ‘one size fits all’ design for this product, which means it can be installed with any joist layout design during the simple installation process.


The sizing of our hatch allows materials to be passed easily between the ground and first floor, meaning all workmen on site will be able to carry out their individual tasks quicker, easier and, most importantly, safer.


Simple by design, simple in use. The Machatch simply slots into the joist design, allowing easy installation and a straightforward work process.


  • Ladder Access Door – to permanently or temporarily fix the ladder into position.
  • Main Access Door –  access is gained through the Main access door by on-site personnel using a ladder between floor levels, once entry has been made the hatch can be closed eliminating the risk of a fall.
  • Material Access Door – The material access Opening allows materials to be passed between floor levels, whilst the main access door remains closed, eliminating the risk of a person falling through the opening.
  • 4 Holes within the outer frame allows the Machatch to be fixed securely into position.
  • Simple installation – Only 2 bolts required for fixing doors to the outer frame.
