4.0 out of 5 stars
Sturdy, attractive ladder, 7 Nov 2011
This is decent ladder that solves the problem of not having space in the attic to store a ladder because the folded ladder sits on the loft hatch itself - although this does make the hatch longer than standard and does require enough space below for the ladder to swing down and unfold - just over 1.5m
The unit seems well made and can be fitted by just one person, which is what I did, but it is pretty heavy and involves a fair bit of climbing in and out of the attic, so a decent stepladder is a must. I would recommend getting someone to help.
I have not given this the full 5 stars because there are a few construction essentials that are not supplied - temporary wooden support batons that you need to screw into the ceiling (which then need making good); 100mm screws and wooden spacers to fix the ladder frame to the roof joists; and finally architrave to finish around the loft hatch (even though this is shown in the picture).
Overall this is an attractive ladder that seems very sturdy. Recommended.
