Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loft Access Door This does exactly what it says and is so simple to fit. Operationally it is very easy, effortless and provides what appears to be good insulation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and easy to fit Looking for a loft hatch to fit an enlarged opening at my daughter's house. Found this one and it was so easy to fit provided you can hold it in place while inserting the 12 screws. I used an extending prop and a bit of wood which worked well. Hatch looks good and is reasonably easy to operate. The only minor criticism is that the recess for opening the hatch isn't very deep and a pole can't get a good enough grip to slide the cover along. Would have preferred a twist locking mechanism like my older hatch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to fit had fitted one of these before - so came to this one armed with a little knowledge Made the present space slightly larger in 10minutes - fitted the new door in less than 5 mins - amazed how easy it was again - and looks infinitely better than its wooden, hinged predecessor

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to fit Very easy to install, clear instructions. Looks clean when finished. Not overly happy with bare polystyrene backing to door, it's inevitable that it will get scrubbed and damaged in everyday usage. You have to be able to reach the door to open it, there's no hooked rod or any other means of opening, for that reason, I wouldn't install this for anyone who is less than able bodied.

How does it attach to the opening

Asked by: Pirateye

Can a loft ladder be fitted on the hatch and how much the maximum weight of the ladder this hatch can carry?

Asked by: Khaled
Quote from the Manthorpe website "The door can also be used in conjunction with the GLL256 and GLL257 loft ladders and can be operated by the pole supplied with them" Hope that helps.

Understand that this is insulated but does it have a moisture seal to prevent condensation in unventilated loft space?

Asked by: Peaco

What size is the opening

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?
Asked by: Mike84
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.

What is the UVALUE of this door?

According to the manthorpe site this loft latch comes in different model numbers, which one is correct for this door so I can identify the uvalue?
Asked by: saltyzip
The one I received has polystyrene insulation not polyurethane.
