Hey,

I'm looking to replace my loft door. Currently it has one of those removeable covers, so I want a door which you can easily push and it then opens like a flap.

I'm thinking the Manthorpe GL250 from Screwfix, however - what concerns me is the border around my current loft hole in the ceiling. Would I need to remove that border? If so, how?! See pics in first comment.

Thanks

Yes you would have to lose the trim looking how the new one opend
Tbh is the door the same size as you may be able to put up a new trim after the new one is fitted anyway to finish it off and not make the roof look untidy

We have a loft hatch that looks just like yours, and had our door replaced with a drop down one which you open with a pole , however ours is wooden and was not fitted as a complete unit like the screwfix one, just a replacement door. This enables us to have a wooden ladder that then pulls down. We previously had a hatch door that open inwards towards the loft , but had to have it changed as it wasn't compatible with a pull down loft ladder. The new door has a twisty metal latch ( sorry you can tell I didn't put it in myself ) and is hinged on the other side , it meant we could leave all the existing trim in place .

Loft ladders, such as this one, include the pole operated catch for the door.

How would I attach that?

It's called a loft hatch.
