Manthorpe GL250 Insulated Drop-Down Loft Access Door White 686 x 856mm
Easy fit loft hatch
Bought to replace an existing push up type of hatch as I wanted to fit a loft ladder. Took literally minutes to fit and works perfectly. Good value quality product.

Good quality product
We replaced a 10year old plastic hatch with this larger one to accommodate a loft ladder and also increase the thermal properties of the hatch.
It was an easy job to install and looks great.
Only slight concern is the polystyrene insulation can be damage easily when refitting the door on to the frame and the sliding mechanism moves very freely once in the vertical position.
Given the removal will happen often in our case we are going to protect the polystyrene edge with a lightweight plastic edge (using the correct adhesive).
Great product and good value for money.

This is the most awful tacky loft door. I returned it shortly after buying it.

Used this to replace a yellowed and sagging Manthorpe access door that was fitted by the house builder fifteen years ago. Replacement took half an hour from getting the step ladder out to putting it away again. It will certainly reduce the flow of warm humid air into the loft space.
The old hatch had a foam draft strip to seal the gap between the hatch frame and the ceiling, a feature which is not included with the modern product. As for whether it will yellow like the last one, only time will tell.
