The JL Industries Warning Light attaches to the underside of roof or equipment hatches, and is designed to alert personnel that the roof top opening or hatch is in the open position.
A very bright, red, xenon strobe light emitting 60 double flashes per minute is activated as soon as the hatch is lifted upward 30 degrees. The strobe automatically turns “Off” when the hatch is in the closed position.
Mounted on the inside surface of the hatch with its magnetic base, RHWL features a built-in tilt switch that is located in its battery compartment. This switch automatically triggers the strobe to its flashing mode when the hatch is lifted upward. Two (2) new D-Cell alkaline batteries provide 50-60 flashing hours.
The “Hatch Alert” is not intended to replace roof top safety initiatives or Saf-T-Hatch rail systems but rather to be used in conjunction with them. The flashing signal is an additional alert that the hatch is open.
