What are loft ladders?

Loft ladders provide access to lofts, attics, plant rooms, or even a roof. As such, they come in all shapes and sizes. For example, folding wooden ladders, compact concertina ladders, sliding attic ladders or electrically operated stairs. A key feature of any loft ladder is that it is permanently fixed at the top (i.e. it cannot be removed). Furthermore, they are available in a variety of load ratings and with fire rated hatches.

In order to save space, attic ladders are typically installed within the ceiling, concealed by a drop-down hatch. However, they can also be installed into vertical wall openings, although this requires specially designed ladders. For access to a roof, particularly for the purpose of roof-top maintenance, heavy duty retractable ladders are fixed beneath a flat roof hatch or rooflight.

In summary, there is a loft access ladder for all needs and budgets. However, finding the right one for your project can be difficult.
