Its a Loft hatch
23 Mar 2015
By Andrew23
, Reading
" A great value insulated loft hatch which took me half a day to fit in a turn of the century home with non standard joist gaps. Having built a wooden frame specifically for the hatch I realised that any twist I introduced with my frame would effect the way the hatch catches the frame. Now successfully fitted I would only question shape of the hooking point of the hatch "

Easy to install
22 Mar 2015
By davtom

" This was a drop-in replacement for an existing push-up trapdoor that was installed in my house which was built in 1999.
Most reviews of this product say it is good, but there are a few that said it is difficult to operate the catch. I did not have a problem doing this. There are stickers on the product that say that the screws should not be overtightened. I can see how the plastic would distort and make it difficult to operate the catch if you did overtighten the screws.
I removed the existing trapdoor and installed the new one in an hour and a quarter.
I like the fact that the trapdoor can be removed completely if needed. In summer, I tend to do this to help keep the house cool.
In summary, product is good and should last years. "

Excellent Loft Hatch
6 Mar 2015
By Millenniumsteve
, Measham
" I am so glad that I purchased this product, not only does it look good it has also stopped the draft that we were getting through the old loft hatch.
The most time consuming part of the task to replace the old hatch was to make the hole in the ceiling bigger as our old hatch was small. Fitting the new loft hatch took less than an hour once I had the hole the right size. The instructions on fitting are minimal but they really don't need to be any better than they are. In total I spent two and a half hours on the job from start to finish. I'm now left with a nice looking loft hatch that blends in with the ceiling and does not stand out.
If you are thinking about changing your loft hatch then you will not go wrong by buying this one. "

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

" 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. "

" 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. "
