At last, a loft hatch designed for a high-end finish! Almost invisible when fitted. Personally, my heart sinks when I walk into an expensive house or multi-million pound flat and see a nasty cheap plastic loft hatch that totally spoils the effect the architect was trying to achieve.
Our loft hatch complies with all the building regulations for insulation, air tightness, L1 & L2, NHBC size requirements, and robust documentation and is also fire rated.
But don’t just use it because it’s fire rated, use it because it’s 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 with 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.
For a traditional look, we can also raise a panel in the centre of the door tray and return the frame to stand off the surface by 7mm. 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.
