Vetus Planus deck hatches

Product information

 VETUS Planus hatch frames are hand polished prior to the anodization process. Not only does this have higher quality appearance, but has the advantage that dirt, salt and grease will not accumulate on the frame and cause permanent stains. Even under the most arduous conditions, VETUS windows, portlights and hatches will still look like new! 

VETUS hatch handles have a number of advantages.

  • The hatch can be opened from either inside or outside.
  • The hatch can be shut completely watertight, or secured with a small air gap to allow permanent ventilation.
  • An internal locking mechanism ensures the hatch cannot be opened from outside when the boat is left unattended. This operates in both the closed or ventilation positions.
  • The low external profile ensures that ropes, e.g. running rigging on sailing boats, cannot foul on the handles.
  • These handles are available separately and can be used to upgrade older VETUS Libero and Planus hatches.



Anodized aluminium counter flange and a mosquito screen are available as options.
