The Metal Hatchframe is the third available hatchframe. A hatchframe functions as a ceiling, providing protection from the elements and giving bonuses to hypo- and hyperthermic insulation, but with the addition of a hole to allow entrance and exit.

Construction[edit | edit source]

A Metal Hatchframe can be placed on any Foundation, Fence Foundation, Ceiling (with the exception of the Thatch Roof), Wall, or another hatchframe.
A Trapdoor can be placed in the hole and locked to provide a way to restrict access to the structure while still allowing you and your tribemates a way through.
A hatchframe requires support from a nearby foundation or pillar in order to be placed. The hatchframe can only be placed up to 2 ceilings away in any direction on the x or y-axis, and up to 1 ceiling away diagonally from a wall or another ceiling that is directly above a connected foundation or pillar. The hatchframes on the far ends of this setup will not be able to support walls.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The insulation provided by a house is not affected by hatchframes, whether the trapdoor is open, closed, or missing.
  • If a hatchframe is destroyed, any building pieces that rely on it for support will be destroyed as well. If it was destroyed via the demolish option, no resources will be refunded for these extra building pieces.




The Metal Ramp, Sloped Metal Roof, Metal Ceiling, Metal Hatchframe, and Metal Windowframe share the same paint regions.
