Inferior sliding loft ladders supplied with smaller, weaker, locking catches which are prone to failure if great care is not exercised when using the ladder. A modern loft hatch provides easy access to the loft while maintaining draught proofing and insulation. The hinge provides a pivot point so when the hatch is closed the action of the latch applies compression to the seals around the door to aid draught reduction. Manufacturers like FAKRO, Manthorpe, Youngman and Timloc have been hand-picked to supply loft ladders and loft hatches to open another space in your home.

OP may be fully competent to do this, and size up the relevant timbers, but the ceiling ties should be beefed up in no different manner to cutting out a floor joist. Clearly thats no good for loft ladders because otherwise whats the point of the ladders if I still need step ladders to open the hatch (which I hadn't quite appreciated before the purchase! Note: you'll need to ensure landing rail, light fittings, etc obstruct your hatch kit while opening and that there are no pipes or electrics above while enlarging an existing hatch. But, if you’re boarding out the roof space for storage, a new loft hatch and ladder is fine and easy to install.

Each loft hatch and ladder here benefits from FAKRO’s signature build-quality and innovative design. This is because the Building Regulations prohibit the use of a ladder if you are creating a habitable room.

Its stance of putting consumers first is protected and enshrined in the legally-binding MSE Editorial Code. Disclaimer: I am not a professionaland am sharing this DIY loft hatch from a novice's perspective and what I've learnt from my carpenter Dad. But with all of the maintenance we've had to do in the attic (and more to come), we needed to install a new loft ladder as our existing loft hatch was far too small. You’ll find the UK’s biggest range of loft hatches anywhere in the UK right here so whatever your needs and budget we have a hatch to suit.

So, if storing valuable items in the loft, using a lock on the hatch is an excellent added security precaution.
