Drop Down Loft Hatch

Manthorpe are one of the leading manufacturers of high quality loft hatches in the UK and Armstrong Supplies offer a wide selection of products to suit your home. Investing in a Manthorpe loft hatch will maintain draught proofing and insulation, while ensuring you have easy access to the loft whenever you need.


If you want to cut down on energy bills, installing a new loft hatch is a great place to start and we have something for every home, no matter what budget you are working to.

Easy operation

When you are searching for a drop down loft hatch you should ensure they feature spring loaded catches which makes them much easier to operate. This will mean they have closing mechanisms with hinge systems that enable the hatch to be opened normally, and where needed, removed entirely. If you need to move large or bulky items in or out of the loft having the option to remove the hatch will ensure you can maximise the opening gap to make the process much easier to manage.

Find the right fit

There are two types of loft hatch available – either drop down or push up. Drop down hatches are the more common style installed, while push up styles feature a separate door and frame. Installation is made easy thanks to the instructions provided with each product, so you don’t have to be a very experienced DIY fanatic to replace your existing loft hatch. They provide a modern fit to improve ventilation and insulation around the home, whether you live in a new build or an older property.

Enhanced insulation

Hatches fitted in older properties can sometimes be poorly fitted which can lead to a lot of heat being lost and draughts coming into your home. The roof is where properties lose most of their heat, so finding ways to reduce this is important. Damp can also enter the loft space and create a lot of structural damage and ruin any items you have stored there. Choose from our various loft hatch sizes to find a drop-down loft that can solve many of these issues to create an air-tight barrier.

Match your home décor

When you install a new hatch door you will want it to match the existing décor of your home. Buying a white neutral-coloured hatch will allow you to paint it over to easily match the current aesthetic. All of the hatch doors available on Armstrong Supplies are available in white, so once they are installed they can be painted to match your preferences.

Safety and protection

You should also ensure you invest in a fire rated loft hatch and purchase a product that complies with the latest safety standards. It’s something we can guarantee in our range, so whether you are buying the Manthorpe drop down loft access door or a hinged trap door, they all comply with Part L of the current Building Regulations. This gives you the confidence that you are installing high quality products that will provide the best available protection for your family and home.
