buyer beware that there is no mention of the finish , smooth or non-skid , in the specs or features, regarding the vertical or deck hatches. If you want a more durable stronger hatch with better features for a vertical application the deck hatches come with a non-skid texture, but there is no mention of what finish the vertical access hatches come with. I'm assuming a non-skid finish to simplify the manufacturing process. Again , there is no mention of the finish on the vertical access hatches.
