The updated energy conservation and air leakage requirements of Building Regulations (Approved Documents L and C) mean that a loft trap needs to be a highperformance product. Site-constructed traps are no longer adequate.

Glidevale Loft Access Traps have been redesigned and re-engineered under BS EN ISO 9001 to meet these latest demands.

Features and Benefits

  • Each Glidevale Loft Access Trap is a complete unit comprising frame and trap door, with integral closed-cell air/vapour seals and thermal insulation.
  • The integral seals significantly reduce water vapour migration into the loft space, reducing condensation risk.
  • The seals also virtually eliminate heat loss by air movement around the trap door and exceed the airtightness requirement of the Approved Documents, as demonstrated by test.
  • The traps provide continuity of thermal insulation at ceiling level, substantially reducing heat loss by conduction through the trap.
  • Options with rigid insulation meet the minimum U-value requirement of the Approved Documents.
  • Suitable for standard 600mm joist centres.

Each Glidevale Loft Access Trap comprises

  • a frame which is fixed into a trimmed opening and has a seal to the ceiling
  • a trap door which is thermally insulated and has a flexible closed cell seal between door and frame.

LA2 hinge-down trap

The trap door is injection-moulded polypropylene with phenolic insulation or expanded polystyrene infill and a black PVC back, attached to the frame by two hinges.

Twin latches hold the door against the closed cell gaskets. Access pole supplied for opening.

LA2 trap and frame has a lightly textured scuff-resistant white finish, which blends unobtrusively with a classic brilliant white ceiling.

Hatch opening size (nominal) 680mm x 520mm
