JL Industries, a brand of Activar Construction Products Group (ACPG), recently rolled out a redesigned line of steel and aluminum roof hatches providing higher insulation value, easier installation and improved cover operation. The new Diamond Series is designed to reduce energy costs with R-6 polyisocyanurate insulation in both curb and cover – exceeding IECC requirements of R-5 for curbs. One-handed latch opening for ladder access, and counter-balanced lid provide the functionality and safety building owners are looking for to comply with OSHA fall protection standards. Installation is easier with the new Diamond Grip™ feature that secures the roofing membrane and backer rod without special tools. Double wall and higher R-Value curb insulation are optional features for this new series.
