The springs do all the work so you don't have too! Effortless operation thanks to our unique, quadruple sprung mechanism that support both the door and ladder meaning raising and lowering the ladder is very light and easy. Loft ladder is manufactured from powder coated steel so very strong. Massive weight rating of 200kg (31.5 stone) - feels "rock solid" under foot, whereas aluminium loft ladders tend to "flex" when climbed in comparison Loft Ladder is Certified to the latest EN 14975 Safety Certificate for your reassurance. Extra deep (80mm/3") treads with an embossed "non slip" pattern provide excellent grip and we guarantee you will feel safe climbing, especially when carrying large or heavy objects up into your loft. Extra thick 40mm "sandwich construction" loft hatch door fitted with peripheral rubber seals to the edge of the opening to significantly reduce heat loss. Supplied with a tough, wipe clean, finish loft hatch door as standard for the premium look in any home. Supplied with FREE pre-cut and painted architrave to easily hide the joint/rough cut plaster between the hatch frame and ceiling. Elegant and modern design with attractive S shaped stiles which also act as hand rails. Easy install brackets hold the hatch frame in your opening - supports the weight of ladder during installation. The brackets also offer fine adjustment using bolts to make the hatch door sit perfectly flush with your ceiling. No storage space is required in your loft (unlike with conventional loft ladders) as the scissor sections simply fold onto the loft door and sit within the perimeter of the hatch itself. Ladder will be delivered fully assembled in its own frame - ready for quick and easy installation. With the Scissor Loft Ladder it is easy to adjust the length to suit your floor to ceiling height (by unbolting a tread or two) without cutting the ladder, like on other models.
