A high quality, precision made hinged metal loft hatch suitable for all types of house. Each hatch is made exact measurements. the hatch is designed to be subtle and clean with a minimal protrusion of 7mm from the ceiling when fitted. All hinges and fixings are also concealed. The lid is fitted with a neat alloy lock.
Construction and finish
The hatch is fabricated from corrosion resistant 1mm Zintec Steel (Zinc coated). The frame and lid are powder coated white RAL No. 9010 with 20% gloss for a satin finish. The hatch frame depth is 63mm (going up into the loft). The frame surround (the visible part you'll see when the hatch is fitted is 25mm on each side unless specified otherwise in the drop down menu.
Insulation and draught resistance
Our hatch design features a concealed seal between the loft door and the frame. This results in an incredible airtightness rating. The lid is filled with 50mm of exposed mineral wool insulation. This hatch has a U value of 0.32 and exceeds the requirements of Part L Building Regulations.
As standard we fit a Tri-Drive lock which can be operated with an opening pole. If the hatch lists a key operated lock, this cannot be used with an opening pole.
Add 5mm for structural opening size e.g. 548 x 700mm panel will fit an opening up to 553 x 705mm
Unless specified in the description, all these hatches have a 25mm frame on each edge. The overall size of the hatch when measured from edge to edge will be the our quoted size + 50mm (+/- 1mm). Please note, where the description lists a 50mm frame, the overall size will be our quoted size + 100mm (+/- 1mm)

Our couriers have had to make some changes in order to protect you, and their staff, while also dealing with exceptionally high demand. As a result the following changes apply:
Parcelforce Worldwide Update - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19). From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.
In order to protect both our people and customers as much as possible, we will not be handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures. Our drivers will instead log the first and last name of the person accepting the item and we will record the geolocation of the delivery. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
If recipients are unable to come to the door or are self-isolating, we will post a customer contact card in the normal way, advising of other ways the recipient can arrange to get their item. For example, by getting a friend or family member (who is not resident with someone who is self-isolating) to collect the parcel from their local Parcelforce depot or Post Office branch, as specified on the card. They will need to bring along the card we left and a form of ID in the name of the person the item is addressed to. Examples of suitable ID are specified on the card.
Due to the current situation, there are significant impacts on our ability to maintain all our usual service levels. We will continue offering our services, receiving and delivering parcels for our customers but there may be disruptions to some services under current conditions. As a result, we will be suspending service guarantees from 18 March 2020 but will seek to ensure ‘all reasonable endeavours’ to maintain service levels where we can.
