Product Details

Looking for a cost-effective way to access loft space? You need this Manthorpe loft hatch – it has a unique three-point sliding mechanism and hinge system that allows you to hinge the door down or remove it for unrestricted access to the loft. The lightly textured white finish on the door can be easily cleaned with a solvent-free damp cloth too.

The loft access door frame comes with fixings and can be fixed directly into the ceiling for quick and easy installation. There are draught seals located around the frame perimeter to provide sealing between the ceiling and the frame, as well as the door and the frame. This reduces air leakage and prevents moist air from entering the loft space. The door frame also comes with 50 mm of expanded polystyrene insulation.

• Sliding catch mechanism and hinge system to suit your access requirements

• Multiple catch points around frame perimeter to minimise air leakage

• Frame fixes directly up into the ceiling

• Insulated with 50 mm expanded polystyrene

• Fixings provided for fast installation

• Internal opening size: 715 mm x 545 mm

• Fitting size: 726 mm x 562 mm

• Pairs well with the Werner aluminium loft ladder 40397

Manthorpe Drop Down Loft Hatch is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 363.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick easy fix. Very easy to fit even though there are no instructions .The polystyrene insulation needs protection as it’s easily damaged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Good product as a whole, relatively easy to install but this does depend on how good the surface is you are fixing to. Ideal if you have a true flat and square ceiling. Mine is an older house so at first the door was really hard to close, i had to do some tweaking but was fine in the end. All in all I think it is worth the money it has a smart clean appearance when fitted and no more sanding painting like my old wooden hatch when decorating. Happy with it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap & poor design The hatch is of very poor quality, the plastic is so thin it bends and distorts - if you live in a brand new house with a perfectly flat ceiling it might work. The sliding mechanism is extremely difficult to use - I have no idea why this has been designed like this. I was under the impression it would be a catch that opens and closes the door but you have to slide the whole door onto some plastic runners to close. How an elderly person would use this I have no idea. I had to use a mallet to hit the edge to close it, I haven't tried to open it since and suspect the door will be damaged when I do. The manufacturer would do well to supply a door as is advertised not a sliding hatch. The picture on the website is not representative of how the product works - it is a little misleading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great loft hatch. We bought this, as our existing (Same model, but 15+ years older) hatch had broken. The fitting was a piece of cake, and was a better design than the original one. Only issue is, unless you’re tall enough, you need steps to open it correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great loft door. This loft door is easy to install. It has a large flange on the underside of the frame which covers irregularities around the edge of the hole. The fixing screws go in vertically so, again, the size of the hole in the ceiling is not critical to a few mm. There’s no pole with the kit but the one that comes with the aluminium ladders operates it well. The area of ceiling you fit it into does need to be reasonably flat so that the frame isn’t twisted. If that happens, the locking lugs collide, rather than slide over each other. Filing the sharp corner off the lugs can get over a small amount of unevenness and a smear of silicone grease on the lugs can make it slide much more smoothly. It seals well and the 50mm of insulation is a big improvement on the zero insulation that the old trap door is likely to have. Mounting the ladder towards one side of the frame gives a good gap on the other side for getting larger items into the loft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good loft hatch This hatch did exactly what it said it would. It was easy to fit (and I'm no DIY expert by any means)
