Glidevale offers a
competitive range of loft access traps with insulation, fire
protection and security options. Each Glidevale loft access trap
comprises a frame which is fixed into a trimmed opening and has a
seal to the ceiling and a trap door which is thermally insulated and
has a flexible, closed cell seal between door and frame.
- 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
enhanced insulation meet the minimum U-value requirement of Approved
key-operated security bolts for tenanted properties or public areas.
- Half-hour fire
resistance option with Class 0 flame spread.
- On hour fire
resistance model available.
- Suitable for
standard 600mm joist centres.
