Does anyone know if it's a lot of work to convert a loft hatch that pushes up into the loft?


It's ok, I've found the instructions. Looks easy enough.

All depends on what you already have up there,

Is the trap big enough for you to climb through easily ?

Does the trap have a proper frame?

Do you have flooring in your attic?

Insulation?

yeah to all that. As it is now, the hatch sits on top of bits of wood screwed to the sides of the opening. They just need to be removed as in pic here, then I think we're good to go, just screw the hinges onto the hatch opening edge.

thank you, just ordered, been looking for one that fits and this does. Just worried about one thing though, is the hinges which screw into the side, my floor is made of 18mm t&g which is sitting above my joists, will th ehinge be big enough to screw into the joist, or will it only overlap to the side of the 18mm floor, which wont give it much strenght? having typed this ive spotted the picture above, which shows the loft ladders are not screwed at the end of the hatch, but rather the door and the hatch is screwed in the floor further away..hmm, my hatch is not flush with my ceiling, it sits up in the space bwtween the floor and ceiling, so i would need to lift my hatch up and backwards into the loft space to get acces to pull the ladders out, rather than cut a bit of the hatch door to bring it sown to ceiling level. Im guessing there si no hatch door with these ladders just a ladder..hmmmm

Well this is all very topical, got one of these the other night, and will most likely this weekend be kitting out the loft in the new house, which will involve putting up 18mm thick boards on loft-legs. I am presuming looking at the installation that as the hinges as well as the stowing 'v' rod need to be on the same level that the main point of reinforcement under the t&g flooring would be around the hatch itself.

If you look at the hatch opening (A) and where the diagram shows (F) I will ensure that I will box in the edges of the tongue and groove flooring around the hatch to add support underneath where the hinges will lie. Depending on joint and stilt location corresponding to where the stowing rod swing arm attaches extra support stilts could be applied.

That's my theory on it, if anyone has boarded out their loft above insulation though, I am open to suggestions
It is brilliant. Easy to put together. Hot from me.
Worth noting that the one in B&Q for £60 also includes a handrail and a spring mechanism to make it easier to stow. Each to their own but I’d rather spend the extra £15 for these benefits.

B&Q loft ladder with handrail
It mentions the loft hatch has to be under 20mm or under, that seems pretty thin? Most modern ones I've seen seem to be about 25-50mm and lined with foam insulation.

Are you keeping them robes you are selling on Ebay in the loft?

Thanks, ordered. Great price.

Unfortunately this has expired now. I would've got it at this price!
