Application

Suitable for use as a loft access panel for plasterboard or plaster ceilings.

Description

The 3000 series ‘loft hatch’ is designed to provide access between 50 mm wide timber truss/ joisted plaster/ plasterboard ceilings, where access to the loft space is required.


Features and benefits:

  • The metal frame holds a flush metal door through adjustable hinges to one side. The door is held closed with either concealed push catches (PC) or a security key lock (SL). The door opens down towards the user and is removable during installation or if damage occurs. Panels with simulated dry wall beaded frames (BF) are jointed/skim-plastered and then decorated on site to match the colour/texture of the adjacent finish.
  • Picture frame (PF) panels are finished semi-gloss white so require no finishing after installation. A 2 mm gap is maintained between the door and frame through the adjustable hinges.
  • Customization of the access panel may be possible including alterative sizes, lock and paint colours, consult manufacturer for details.
  • Rubber draught seals to all sides.
  • Fully adjustable hinges.
  • 3000/PF/PC:
  • Frame: 1.2 mm thick, electro-galvanized carbon steel, incorporating a simulated dry wall edge bead profile (BF) and door rebate. Factory welded to specified size and finished white powder coated primer. Rubber compressible draught seals are fitted all round.
  • Door: 0.9 mm thick, electro-galvanized carbon steel flush faced tray finished white powder coated primer. Bonded to the door rear is a 70 mm rigid insulation board that gives a U-value of 0.38 W/m²K.
  • Locks: Concealed touch catches (PC) on rear of the door, operated from the front face with an operating pole (included), or a security key lock with keys included (SL) with chrome escutcheon to door face for captive key entry.
