Good quality product
26 Jan 2015
By Mark09
, Oakham
" We replaced a 10year old plastic hatch with this larger one to accommodate a loft ladder and also increase the thermal properties of the hatch.
It was an easy job to install and looks great.
Only slight concern is the polystyrene insulation can be damage easily when refitting the door on to the frame and the sliding mechanism moves very freely once in the vertical position.
Given the removal will happen often in our case we are going to protect the polystyrene edge with a lightweight plastic edge (using the correct adhesive).
Great product and good value for money.

Excellent replacement
20 Jan 2015
By SlimJimDIY

" Used this to replace a yellowed and sagging Manthorpe access door that was fitted by the house builder fifteen years ago. Replacement took half an hour from getting the step ladder out to putting it away again. It will certainly reduce the flow of warm humid air into the loft space.
The old hatch had a foam draft strip to seal the gap between the hatch frame and the ceiling, a feature which is not included with the modern product. As for whether it will yellow like the last one, only time will tell. "

repacement loft hatch
27 Dec 2014
By frenchkitchens
, cotswolds
" Stripped the old wooden hatch off that was very drafty, elongated the hole a bit, fitted a new trimmer 4x2 between the joists and screwed it in place. 15 minutes including vacuuming the bits up start to finish!
100% recommended. "

Easy to fit - good design
6 Dec 2014
By IainNotts

" Used to replace a horrible bowed yellowed and flimsy plastic door installed when our house was constructed 12 years ago. Having allocated an afternoon to fit it is was finished in an hour ! Very well insulated and air tight with several locking points around the frame. Easy sideways action to open and close. "

easy quick fit loft hatch
23 Oct 2014
By Anonymous
, Forest of Dean
" Overboarding landing ceiling, purchase and fitting of this product provided a great finish. Also saved time making a new hatch lining and stripping and repainting existing hatch.
Liked the features of the insulation sliding and operation but especially the ability to completely remove if getting stuff from loft down.
Great price for time saved and finish achieved, only criticism is the off white plastic colour. "

" The Manthorpe GL250 is a little bit more expensive than other hatches but it's well worth paying the difference. I've fitted a few hatches in my time and this has got to be the easiest ever. It is simple and effortless to open and close, and once open, you can unhitch the door to give unrestricted access. Since fitting the GL250 I have been in and out of the roof space like a demented ferret and have had no problems. All my ceilings are white (boring but practical) so the GL250 blends in and is almost invisible. I recommend this hatch unreservedly. "

" Needed to replace my damaged loft hatch door. Really easy to fit and does the job and looks great. My only concern is how the sliding mechanism to open & close the door will cope over time.Aside from that very pleased. "
