Arctic Tern Roof Hatch - Electric Deluxe

No reviews yet Write a Review

The Arctic Tern Electric Deluxe Roof Hatch is a wonderful addition to your camper or van.  It is available in electric drive only and features a German-made Bosch drive motor, and a removable emergency hand crank.  These hatches have been tested to 5000+ cycles with no failure.

The Roof Hatch features a breathable seal that prevents the entry of dust, but allows for some breath-ability in the cabin.  The dome is smoked double pane acrylic.  Like all Arctic Tern window panels, these are European made and meet strict ECE/DOT standards for UV resistance and impact.  It features a pleated retractable screen and blind.  The body of this hatch is high strength white ABS.  Bright white LEDs can serve as primary light in most cabins.  Mounting is by adhesive and clips.  This hatch requires 12V service.  The interior trim extends down 30mm/1.18". 

The Electric Deluxe Roof Hatch features a rain sensor designed to close an open roof hatch if it is raining and water contacts the sensor.  The rain sensor override switch allows for control over the rain sensor.  A motor disconnect switch interrupts power to the motor controller and allows operation of the roof hatch using the button on the trim.  A remote control opens and closes the roof hatch from a distance and a switch on the trim can operate the roof hatch without the remote.

An optional Spoiler is available.  This unique spoiler has a white acrylic exterior laminated to a fiberglass interior layer.  The result is a beautiful smooth finish with exceptional strength.  Mounting is by 3M high strength tape and screws.  This spoiler is highly recommended if the front of the hatch is exposed to high speed oncoming air / water.  If the hatch is mounted behind a solar panel or other wind break, it would not be necessary.  The spoiler reduces cabin wind noise.
