Fire rated loft hatches are typically required under building regulations for all houses with 3 or more storeys and blocks of flats. Our range of fire rated loft hatches includes standard size hinged and push up loft traps designed to fit between 600mm joist centres. With 600mm being the standard used for loft joists in UK properties.
All our loft hatch designs have been independently tested in a UKAS accredited test house and achieve a 60 minute / 1 hour fire rating.
Where a standard size fire rated loft hatch is unsuitable we are able to make fire rated loft hatches to measure. Our bespoke fire rated loft hatches are available in either hinge down or push up
All metal fire rated loft hatches are made from zintec steel which is powder coated in white, RAL9010 with a 20% gloss. As standard our drop down loft hatches come fitted with a tri-drive lock. However we can also supply key lockable options in both standard and bespoke hatches.
Each fire rated loft hatch comes with pre-formed screw holes in the frame, when fitting, offer the hatch up to the loft opening and screw fix the frame to the surrounding joists.
Please supply in mm, if you need advice, please contact us as bespoke products are made to order and cannot be returned.
