Baier is the first name associated with commercial marine flush deck hatches, having set the standard for the industry since 1947 when Baier was awarded its first patent for innovative design. Baier was the first flush deck marine hatch manufacturer to receive American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and US Coast Guard certification. Today, Baier Flush Deck hatches are employed on all types of fishing boats, tugs, barges, rescue boats, and other marine vessels in both military and private sectors.
