Description

If the loft hatch is hinged, the compression seal or the foam strip must be placed on the exterior perimeter on the top of the loft hatch. By purchasing from us we will add you to our monthly newsletter database, there is an option to unsubscribe at anytime from this. In our experience this is less effective than the method above and is only recommended where you don't have a suitable door jamb to seal against.

If sealing is poor, the loft hatch can act as a sort of chimney funnel and pull up warm air out of your home into the unheated loft space. Static and dynamic connections can be made watertight using fibre or rubber washers, O rings or lip seals, all of which need to chosen to match the type of liquid and pressure they are required to contain. So, can anyone recommend an insulation strip that will offer flexibility to allow the catch to work as well as offering a similar level of insulation.If this is the case with yours, you’ll have to apply the tape to the frame and the hatch so that the two strips meet when the loft hatch is closed. This solution will fix the draughts and provide a well-insulated ground floor which feels warmer underfoot. Whilst it is a **** poor job, seals are needed anyway as even a millimetre gap will still let air bleed. Modern homes are constructed with airtightness requirements defined by Building Regs, but older homes are often extremely leaky.

The bright yellow spot in the centre of the image is the bathroom extractor fan – an example of controlled ventilation that you'd be ill-advised to seal. The loft ladder supplier Fakro (from who we get most of our ladders) have a fantastic range of ladders that actually include the hatch and casings all attached together. If the loft hatch is hinged, you will need to put either the compression seal or the foam strip on the outside perimeter on the top of loft hatch.

To comply with all UK building regulations any electrical work should be carried out by a UK certified electrician.
