Key Features
The T-Handle Strongback hatch cover product line is available only in cast aluminum. The deck rings used are the same as the Classic HEX and are available in galvanized mild steel (for welding into steel decks), or cast aluminum (for welding into aluminum decks or bolting to fiberglass or wood decks). Stainless deck rings are available by special order.
The design is especially popular on aluminum boats, fishing and other workboats, as well as many U.S. Navy and U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard vessels.
Optional spoked or un-spoked handwheels are available. Request the handwheel option from a Baier sales representative or Baier distributor at the time of purchase.
