Currently, the 4-dog BFHLP series hatch cover assemblies are available only in cast aluminum. However, the deck rings for the BFHLP are the same size as the Strongback models, and are available in galvanized mild steel or cast aluminum. Stainless Steel deck rings are available by special order.
Baier™ low profile hatches are designed for applications where inside clearance is limited. Built strong for the extreme rugged requirements of the commercial and fast utility craft worldwide.

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.
