We understand the importance of having a well-designed loft hatch for easy access to your loft space, while also ensuring insulation and energy efficiency in your home. Finally, I cut some UPVC beading for trim with a mitre box and stuck them around the cut edges of the opening and rang along the outsides with silicone.

Each loft hatch and ladder here benefits from FAKRO’s signature build-quality and innovative design. You can choose between non fire-rated or fire-rated hatches to create a bespoke solution that meets your exact needs. Please note, due to most loft openings not being completely square always allow up to 5mm over to allow for this. The next topic is the boarding out, and the extra load on the ceiling, plus insulation and membranes. As the ladders were too long, we opened them out, while the folded area was aiming backwards and measured the distance from the floor to the fold and cut the bottom piece to the same length and screwed back.Increasing numbers of people use their loft space as storage for bulky, infrequently used items such as Christmas decorations and suit cases. An aluminium ladder is a particularly popular solution for householders looking for access to their loft as they are sturdy, but light. Always seek a professional, or loft ladder fitters if you don't know or are unsure of what you are doing. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.

Don’t attempt any further work until you have placed planks or boards across the joists to make a platform from which you can work. This then raises the thorny topic of structural alterations, and should a structural engineer and Buildings Regulations be involved? All that would be required is to remove any existing facings (architraves) on the ceiling to allow a flush fit. Which type of ladder you go for depends on personal preference, the space available and how often you are going to use it. The FAKRO hinge and bracket system gives a significantly larger amount of space inside the ladder than products using older technology, enabling items to be moved into and out of a loft with ease.Our wooden loft ladders are a great choice if you are looking for a more cost-effective solution that will still be more than sturdy enough for everyday use. Once the ladder has been fixed to the loft hatch, the hatch itself should be insulated (unless using a pre-manufactured unit which is supplied fully thermally insulated) with a draft preventing seal fitted around the hatch. But as we’ve already pointed out any project other than for storage will require permanent stairs and must comply with the building regs. I have a loft hatch already, but its a push up type, so I normally get some step ladders and push the hatch cover up into the loft to gain access, then drop it down as I exit. With fire ratings of 60 minutes, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loft hatch offers the utmost protection.
