Columbus Treppen GmbH – supplier profile

Company overview

Columbus Treppen GmbH has over 60 years of experience in manufacturing loft ladders and staircases. Furthermore, it pioneered the concept of space-saving concertina stairs, for which it is best known. Over the years, Columbus has continued to enhance its manufacturing process; perfectly combining hand-craftsmanship with high precision, state-of-the-art technology. The result is a range of loft ladders, stairs and flat roof access hatches of the highest quality.

Located in Neusäß near Augsburg, Columbus Treppen employs more than 80 people and is an independent business unit under the umbrella of Roto Frank AG. As a result of Roto’s experience with precision-engineered window hardware systems has helped inspire some of the latest and most innovative loft ladders from Columbus.  A good example of this is the Designo wooden loft ladder, which features a Roto 6-point locking mechanism to create an airtight seal when closed.

Product range

As a result of a relationship spanning more than 15 years, Premier Loft Ladders is the main UK distributor for Columbus Treppen GmbH. Subsequently, we offer the complete range of Columbus loft ladders. Also known as the Exklusiv, the Supreme heavy duty loft ladder remains our most popular product. It is an extremely versatile product, that can be specified with a wide range of hatch box and operational options. In addition, the Elite (also referred to as the Junior) is a popular loft ladder. This is because it offers the same high strength and easy-to-use benefits as the Supreme, but is very easy to install and can be fitted within existing hatch boxes. Furthermore, the expanding range of wooden loft ladders, such as the Designo and Quadro, add to the premium product line-up.
