The wooden fire rated loft hatch is fire resistant to EI230​, F30 Plus and EI260. It is made-to-measure and supplied as a ready to fit unit. The insulated and airtight trapdoor provides good energy efficiency and both sides are finished in white for improved aesthetics.

The fire resistant loft hatch is tested by IBS Linz for 30 minutes from below (EI230) and 60 minutes from below (EI260), for installation in either wood-beamed ceilings or concrete ceilings. For concrete ceilings only, the hatch is also tested by MPA Braunschweig for 30 minutes from below and above (F30 Plus).

Furthermore, the wooden 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.
