Watertight manual hatches

Manual hatches by Newthex are straightforward in their design but precisely engineered and built to the highest specifications.

The result is products that are durable and hard-wearing, and capable of protecting the interior of any vessel from the worst that the sea can throw at it as well as the robust handling that comes with drills and actual combat.
