The Klimatec 160 is a high performance solution for passive and low carbon buildings. Not only does it offer superb thermal insulation and an airtight seal, but it also benefits from 30-minute fire protection.
The Klimatec 160 is the latest product in the Premier Loft Ladders range to be certified by the Passive House Institute (PHI) for use in passive buildings. It offers very high thermal insulation, achieving a U-value of just 0.34 W/m2K. It also features a class 4 certified airtight seal. As such, it is extremely effective at keeping the warmth in the building. An optional secondary upper-cover adds further insulation, while the ‘air seal kit’ ensures an airtight seal between the outside of the hatch box and the building.
An important benefit that sets the Klimatec 160 apart from other passive house certified loft ladders is the fact it offers fire protection as standard. The 30-minute fire rating makes it ideal for projects that must achieve the highest standards in energy efficiency, but also require protection from fire.
The loft ladder itself is made of high strength steel components. When not in use, the ladder folds-up within the hatch box. Counter-balance springs and ball-bearings help to ensure smooth and easy operation.
The large treads (360mm wide x 120mm deep) have a load rating of 250kg, making the Klimatec 160 suitable for use in heavy duty applications. Furthermore, the steel components have a high-quality white powder coat finish for both aesthetics and durability.
