Bilco Supplies Hatches for Top London Development

Leading access doors and vents manufacturer, Bilco, has completed delivery of roof access hatches for apartments at the largest public square built in the UK for more than a century.

Dalston Square in Hackney, East London, includes landscaped open spaces, a new public library and new retail facilities as well as new homes.

The homes are eco-friendly one to four bedroom houses and apartments, built using sustainable building materials and incorporating systems to reduce energy consumption and domestic waste.

Bilco has supplied three of its new NB-50T roof access hatches which were installed on the rooftops of the building. The hatches were supplied to Allan Roofing Ltd, which installed them as part of its roofing contract. The main contractor was Barratt Homes.

The development features a green roof – a roof partially covered with vegetation and soil, planted over a waterproofing membrane. Due to the high degree of insulation that they provide, green roofs are known for their ability to provide a constant temperature throughout the year.

The NB-50T is part of Bilco’s recently improved roof hatch range which provides increased thermal insulation and reduced air leakage. The modifications help architects and engineers meet the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations.
