Manual Hatches are cheaper substitutes for iris valves.[1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Manual Hatches: They are hinged, pressure-tight doors secured by a handwheel and extending bars. They are not automatic and have no interaction with the ship's computer, though sensors may be placed to tell the computer whether the hatch is open or closed.[2]

A manual hatch cannot be opened if a major pressure differential exists between compartments on either side of it.[3]
