Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent loft hatch This hatch was very easy to fit. Luckily the existing opening did not have to be altered. The way that it locks together is simple yet strong and effective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from loft hatch cover Looks good when fitted and is easy to fit but to open and close the hatch cover you need to be able have hands onto the cover to slide it open/close. You will need a step ladder or hop-up to reach the door to carry out the opening or closing of the hatch cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Item Very simple to fit and for the money it looks great and performs well. When the door it can be completely detached so if you push it the wrong way you can end up with it party detached. I think this can make some people to panic, apply force, and break the hinge. The hinge is perfectly strong, but it is only plastic. Provided people remember this is a budget product then really there isn't a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and price I've read some of the poor reviews of this loft hatch and don't know what people have done. I can only assume they've fitted it incorrectly or have very uneven ceilings. I've now fitted four of this newest version of the hatch, all four were easy to fit and operate easily, I'm a tall guy so can reach up and open the hatch easily but I would recommend getting yourself up to the hatch level and opening the hatch by hand rather then trying to use a pole. This is the best version of the hatch with great multi point locking - which if you fit the hatch properly easily slides back and forth without any chance of damage. The seal is great and has I'm sure reduced the heat loss due to its 'airtightness' Do read the instructions, do fit it square, don't over tighten the screws at any point. Job done. PS to the person who said the hatch fell out - what on earth had you done to achieve that, it's possible to remove the hatch but mine require quite careful movement to get it in a position to come out, no way can it just fall out unless it was either damaged before it was installed or wasn't installed correctly,

The Manthorpe website lists the GL250 fitting size as 562mm x 726mm however you the product title states 686mm x 856mm.
What is the overall size including surround and how big is the opening?

Answer: 
The ManThorpe website fitting size is correct at 562mm x 726mm. Screwfix for some reason lists the most extreme dimensions of the product 686mm x 856mm (what you see from your landing as the overall dimensions of the plastic frame).

The opening size is a lot smaller than the frame size. I think they could have made the frame slimmer.

Answer: 
There are lugs in the door which engage with the frame. When the door is shut you slide it along and the lugs in the door engage in the frame forming a seal. I stand on steps to open the door as it needs to be supported when opening.
