"Had a look around and this hatch seemed the best value for money and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Quick and easy to fit and of a very good quality. Just what I was after."

"Bought as replacement for old loft access hatch that failed after a short time with minimal use for a family member, very easy and quick to fit. Excellent sturdy design and finish, good fixings. Thoroughly recommend this item."

"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."

"Couldn't be easier to fit. Had to remove old fascias from previous upward/inward hatch which took longer than fitting of new one. All in, it took me about 30 mins. GL250 frame fitted perfectly and now works a treat. Highly recommended."

Easy to fit
22 Sep 2014

"I bought this as the loft hatch I had was looking decidedly tatty. This came up as a "you may also like" when I was looking for a loft ladder.
It is very light in weight and I was concerned that it may not be up to the job. The strength of the product becomes evident once it is fixed in position. It's not the best looking quality loft hatch I've ever seen but once installed has pleasant lines.
The instructions were a breeze to follow (they're all written on its packaging) and it was very easy to install. Despite having to cut some plasterboard to enable this larger size to fit, I had the job done in about 30 minutes.
A couple of minor adjustments afterwards, all of which are explained in the instructions, and the job's a good 'un!"

Design has changed
7 Jun 2014
By
, Erskine
"Have used several Manthorpe hatches but design has now changed which means I couldn't use this one on my last job. The old style had the internal section drop down but the new one has the whole hatch drop down which does not work if original hatch area is close to the wall. Had to build a new hatch from scratch which cost me more time. Still a good well build hatch & will use them but old style could be used anywhere. Attached picture shows where the hatch could not be used"

"Bought this to enable new loft tank to be fitted without having to plaster and make good after. Did exactly what I expected without any problem to install. Not used before so only 3 stars for reliability but looks as if it will stand the test of time."

"Bought this hatch after reading reviews. I am a competent doing most jobs but found it difficult to get the door back on till you find the knack and it doesn't slide shut very easy.
Would I buy or recomend . No
