How much does a water tank access hatch cost?

Access hatches are installed as a point of entry to and egress from enclosed spaces, such as cold-water storage tanks. They're not just important for health and safety compliance, but they make routine maintenance activities such as repairs or cleaning works significantly more efficient. Access hatches can help reduce time and cost whenever access to the internal structure is necessary.

Access hatches should ideally be fitted at a low level, close to the base of the water tank or any relevant structure. If the access point is situated at height, then additional precautions are needed to protect the operatives from the risks of falling. This adds significant time, cost and risk to the process, so installing access hatches at a low level is preferable to allow entry in a safe and efficient manner.

Installing a low-level access hatch will greatly reduce the health and safety risks to the operatives who are entering the water tank, compared to a high-level access point. It removes the working at height risks, as well as improving the ability of the outside man to affect a rescue in the event of an emergency.

The price of a water tank access hatch will vary with factors such as location and size, however we'll always provide the most cost-effective solution for our clients.
