Fire rated Bespoke Loft Hatch
This high quality "Made to Measure" Fire rated hinge down steel loft hatch has a sleek design for the contemporary modern house. There are no projecting hinges or handles, just simple clean lines.
Construction and finish
The hatch is Powder coated 1.2mm zintec steel smooth white (RAL 9010) maintenance free finish. The loft access door requires no painting and projects into the ceiling space a mere 8mm.
The hatch frame depth is 63mm (going up into the loft).
Please note if it is less than 450mm from the hinge to the lock side the depth of the panel and insulation is reduced to 30mm to enable it to close.
Insulation and thermal efficiency
The Part "L" compliant loft hatch is insulated with 50mm of exposed fire resistant mineral slab.
The loft hatch has a neat steel, silver tri-drive budget lock with a built in chamfer to give a smooth closing action.
In addition, the loft door has a concealed draught seal between the mitred frame and door, providing a phenomenally high air seal rating. This virtually eliminates vapour ingress and/or warm air leakage and it also makes for easy decoration of the ceiling up to the edge of the loft door surround.
1) Standard Tri-Drive lock - a high quality lock with integrated internal O-Ring seal for improved airtightness
2) Key lock - a neat key operated lock. Useful for situations where access to loft space needs to be restricted e.g. communal areas or rental properties
Fitting instructions are included.
Both lock options operate a chamfered cam which applies compression between the door face and the seal on the frame to maintain airtightness.
What measurements are required to make your hatch to the right size?
Please measure the length and width of your loft opening in mm. Please deduct 5mm from each dimension to allow for the hatch not being exactly square. Please double check your measurements as these loft hatches are made to order. If you are in doubt, please call us on 01937 325 325 for advice.
Quoted in working days (sat/sun not classed as working days)

Need a Fire Rated loft hatch bigger than 900x600mm?
Our maximum size using this design is 900x600mm (please call to discuss if larger as the product structure & price will alter).
Q My opening is out of square, is the 5mm deduction enough?
A Please call for individual advice on the matter.
Q Does the door sit flush with the frame?
A To ensure a tight air seal the door projects marginally on the lock side, however over a period of about 3 months this will reduce by approx 50% to roughly 2mm

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.
