Best way to install these is to make a frame around the new loft hatch whilst it's on the floor out of 4x2, take the frame up into the loft to work out the best position for it i.e least ceiling joists to cut. Then cut out enough for the frame to sit in the gap and screw everything back together whilst reinforcing the area around the cuts. Then fit the new loft hatch in the perfectly sized frame you've just installed.
Don't fit it on your own unless you are feeling strong as holding it in place whilst you screw it to the frame one handed is not easy.

Be careful if fitting this yourself and cutting through joists, joists are there for a reason! Something like this is much easier for a novice to install and no major work needed as it is suitable for square loft hatches toolstation.com/wer…wcB

Same here and I have a joist about 6 inches away from where the hinges probably go-ahead advice?
The actual ladder looks very small and thin?

I have this and fitted it myself. Would recommend it.
That loft hole looks rectangular, mine is square.

Yup, you'd be extending your hatch. It's not rocket science but... equally, isn't something you can just throw in place. I think this is the full hatch+ladder. You probably will need to:
1) Take out your existing hatches frame.
2) Build a new frame around this hatch as per the suggestion above.
3) Cut out the plasterboard ceiling panel to accept the new frame
4) Cut out any additional joists required for frame to fit
5) Screw it all back together and finish making it look cosmetically good.

Get someone in to sort it if you aren't sure. Most tradesmen should have you this fitted in half a day max.

Agree these are much easier to fit, but you need to allow for clearance in the loft for it to store on the floor and the angle of it when it drops down. We just haven’t got the clearance or floor space for one of these else I’d of ordered The wooden ones look great as the store on the hatch door better for us storage wise but more complicated to install

This is designed to fit between joists with a standard 600mm spacing. All you should be doing is extending the opening in the ceiling and moving one noggin between the joists. I installed a Youngman Click Fix 26 (which is designed to be installed by one person)...

I am lazy. Got somebody to extend the size of my loft hatch and fit new hatch and ladders. Got £290 all fitting and supplied. Took the bloke shout 4 hours.
Don’t buy metal ones. As they can hold condensation etc

Would the wooden ladders need varnishing every couple of years or so? Also, could the wooden ladders warp? Pros and cons with each type I suppose.
Thanks OP. One of those very rare moments where you stumble across something you actually need on HUKD.

its safer the wider the step, the wooden ones are twice+ the step on the metal ones.
Is £85 worth chucking on fire these days?????
Please don’t just go cutting out joists randomly to fit one of these as advised above. You may be weakening your roof structure.
It's quite hard to see from the pictures on homebase but is there a trim around this? I'll have to increase the size of my hatch opening to accommodate this and it would be useful to have something to tidy it up

Nope you just see the rectangular wood frame lying flush with ceiling if correctly fitted and have to glue or nail your own trim.
Anyone picked one of these up? What is the box size like? Likely to fit in the boot of a hatchback (C3)?
Edited by: "chezvegas85" 14th Sep 2019
Hi that looked ideal for where I've just moved in but size says "(L)113 x (W)55cm". Just measured mine loft trapdoor and thats 122x68cm. Are there standard sizes or am I just unlucky ?!
Cheers
When fitting it would need cutting out. For new hatch and ladders.
