Fire Rated Loft Hatch Fitting and User Guide

Installation Advice

  • The product is designed to fit between 38mm thick trussed rafters or ceiling joists spaced at 600mm centres which provide a clear joist opening width of 562mm
  • If the roof design does not provide this joist opening width, a suitable opening must be formed Trimmers must be installed across the ends of the frame. These must be spaced to give a clear opening length of 726mm
  • The frame fixes with 16 screws.
  • Fit the loft access door after the ceiling has been plaster boarded and skimmed
  • The frame must be a good fit into the trimmed opening. Never try to force it into an opening that is too small. If the opening is too large use packers to ensure a good fit

  5. The ceiling should be finished and painted before installation. Offer up the frame and have the door open ensuring it sits square and flush with your ceiling. Use 50mm long woodscrews to secure the frame through the 16 no. pre punched holes. Lastly, seal around the join between the frame and your ceiling using a fire retardant mastic.
