The Minimalist

Loft Hatch

An almost invisible loft hatch designed to be as discreet as possible. This hatch will blend in seamlessly to compliment any high-end end/luxury scheme where a better solution than the standard house-builder plastic hatch is required.

Our loft hatch complies with all the building regulations for insulation, air tightness, L1 & L2, NHBC size requirements, robust documentation and is also fire rated.

But don’t just use it because its fire rated, use it because its beautiful and your client will love it.

For the best result we recommend specifying the beaded frame variety where the frame edge is tape and jointed or skimmed into the ceiling membrane. Ensure the door face is over-painted to match the ceiling. If your ceiling is already finished there is a picture frame option with ‘soft’ corners to cover the cut edge of the aperture. This panel is finished in a polyester powder coated white textured finish, which can also be over-painted. The door tray is hinged in its short length by two pivot hinges and locked by a concealed key operated square drive lock.

To open all our loft hatches from the floor specify the ‘SLIK’ Invisible Keyhole system and an extra long key. Open the hatch and pull down ladders without using steps. Security locks are available for communal areas.
