    Description

    Details

    Manthorpe's best selling GL250-03 Drop-Down/Lift-Out Access Door has a twist action catch which secures the frame in three places to provide a secure, draught-sealed fit.

    The GL251-03 Lockable Door has all the benefits of the standard drop down door and is especially suitable for accommodation which has shared loft space.

    This loft hatch meets the requirements of the BS 9250:2007 Code of Practice for design of the air tightness of ceilings in pitched roofs. The air leakage rate through the loft hatch and frame, when tested to BS EN 13141-1:2004, is less than 1.0m³/hr at a pressure difference of 2Pa. It therefore conforms to the BS 5250: 2002 Code of Practice for the control of condensation in buildings (incorporating Amendment No.1 2005) 8.4.1.2, Air tightness of sloping and horizontal ceilings.

    Manthorpe Loft Doors have also been tested and meet the requirements of the Building Regulations 2000, Conservations of Fuel and Power in New Dwellings part L1A 2006 as well as the reasonable limit for the design air permeability of 10m³/(h.m²) at 50Pa. BRE Tests 231-637 and 233-677.

    • Thermally insulated lid

    • From Vincent at 08/06/2017 13:34
      • I have a loft opening of 700*700 push up hatch. Do I need to buy a drop down hatch that fits this exactly or can the likes of this hatch be adapted to fit or does the opening need to be extended? (sounds like a lot of work)

        Vincent.

      • All our loft ladders require a drop down hatch, We do a standard hatch of 600 x 600 or you can have a made to measure hatch.

      Having taken the time to carefully read all the instructions relating to the Loft Hatch, its installation was quite easy, even for an inexperienced pensioner.

      Good service associated with helpful advice, and the opportunity to check first for the correct equipment excellent. I would recommend this company.

      I am very pleased with this product although it could be improved by a hard cover over the foam insulation as it is easily damaged by one's feet when climbing a loft ladder. Delivery and comunication was excellent.

    5. Makes a very good seal and excludes the draughts well
      Performance / Ease of Use
      Quality of product
      Value for money

      Installed this alone, would have been easier with another person but easy enough.

      I put in the two middle screws to hold it in place, the pushed it firmly against the ceiling below each other screw before screwing them in. Makes a very good seal and excludes the draughts well.

      Highly recommended!
