The Adobe Hatchframe is a Structure in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


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.


An Adobe Hatchframe can be placed on any Adobe Foundation (Scorched Earth) Foundation, Adobe Fence Foundation (Scorched Earth) Fence Foundation, Adobe Ceiling (Scorched Earth) Ceiling (with the exception of the Thatch Roof Thatch Roof), Adobe Wall (Scorched Earth) Wall, or another hatchframe.
A Adobe Trapdoor (Scorched Earth) 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.


  • 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.
