The steel fire rated loft hatch has been tested by IBS Linz for 30 minutes from below (EI230), 60 minutes from below (EI260) or 90 minutes from below (EI290). The fire resistant hatch is suitable for installation in fire retardant wooden or concrete ceilings. It is made-to-measure and supplied as a ready to fit unit. The insulated steel trapdoor provides good energy efficiency.

Furthermore, the steel loft hatch is fully counter-balanced and supplied with an operating pole. As such, it can be safely opened and closed from the floor, without any need for a stool or step-ladder.
