I suspect the opening is not perfectly square, so I would cut it to size with just a 'little' extra, then plane and sand edges to make it fit snug. Draught excluder tape is used to seal any aperture fully by filling gaps in frames and protecting properties from the elements. If you’ve got a draught of cold air coming into your top landing then it could very well be from your loft hatch. Modern homes are constructed with airtightness requirements defined by Building Regs, but older homes are often extremely leaky.

Not to mention the comfort of rooms that have less of a draught, the seals will also block heat and make your air conditioning more efficient. This will allow some air to pass through (good ventilation) while preventing uncontrolled loss of warm air. Arguably, getting something for totally free will get a true MoneySaver's heart pumping faster than any cardio workout ever could. If we’re not installing something like a Fakro loft ladder that comes with a fully-insulated hatch and frame then we build one bespoke. A smouldering incense stick producing a steady stream of smoke can also be useful for detecting gentle air currents.If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. The hygienic fire and smoke seals are extremely popular in hospitals, schools and kitchens because they're easy to wipe clean, unlike standard intumescent seals with a nylon brush, helping to reduce the spread of bacteria. Below we list the branches disappearing and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking.

If you’ve got the type of hatch that rests on the frame surrounding, and swings into your loft, then a compression seal or foam strip can be applied around the edge of that frame. 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. 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 you don’t use as much energy in your home, you are naturally lowering your carbon footprint as well.Credit subject to status, UK residents only, Toolstation Ltd, acts as a broker and offers finance from a restricted range of finance providers, PayPal Credit is a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH. Cross-section of a hatch and casing with ‘P’ seal What’s the difference between a draught-proof and an insulated hatch? All our loft ladders and hatches are durable and come in a range of materials and sizes to suit your space. To draught-proof the first of these, you can simply put a compression seal or foam strip around the perimeter of the bottom of the loft hatch. Good use of draft proofing could reduce your air permeability to around 8-10 metres cubed per hour which is a good low-cost way of reducing you heating bills.

Millions of people would have to double their incomes to escape financial hardship, says anti-poverty charity Joseph Rowntree Foundation in a new report published today. It’s super important to always keep safety in mind when doing any work inside or around your loft space.With these hygienic seals, you have the option to specify the colour of the seal, with a completely white seal, white backing with a black seal, or brown backing with a brown seal. If you intend to insulate the loft and draught-proof the hatch yourself, it is imperative you take safety seriously. The hatch then rests against that post when shut and it’s on that post that we apply a rubber ‘P’ seal as illustrated in the diagram below. If you have a breeze coming down your open chimney, try a universal chimney draught excluder to ensure you never feel the chill again.

And this is actually quite common and one that can be made much much worse if the insulation is being squashed. These have disappeared in the second image after installation of Q-Lon Retro draught-proofing seals. cut off some normal insulation, pop it into a black bin bag and staple it to the hatch - jobs a goodun! They have various options and for people wanting a top quality, and energy-efficient, sealed loft space.I am trying to replace a loft door the maximum available opening is 695mmx880mm there is enough room to have a 50mm architrave type trim around this opening. And finally, if you have the very old style of loft door that isn’t hinged or even attached to anything fear not! If the chimney flue isn't too wide, you should be able to seal it by simply stuffing some wool-type insulation into the opening. Fasten two handles to the inside of the hatch to assist in pulling it down against the weatherstripping.
