The Ecco concertina loft ladder supersedes the popular Mini loft ladder and is designed for small ceiling openings. It is supplied as a ready to fit unit, consisting of a space-saving aluminium ladder contained within, and attached to, a laminated wooden hatch box. The Ecco features an insulated trap door with multi-point latching system, therefore giving an airtight seal (class 4 certified) all the way around the hatch. It is also pre-assembled with the WDL sealing and insulation tape, preventing cold draughts between the hatch box and ceiling and helping to make installation quicker & easier.

Ecco concertina loft ladder steps up to the challenge
Loft Boarding Scotland and their clients, Ian and Dianne, had a challenging set of requirements. Firstly, they needed a replacement loft ladder that offered safe and easy access to the loft of a period home. Secondly, the new loft ladder needed to be suitable for a high ceiling with only a small loft opening. As such, the compact Ecco loft ladder provided the perfect solution.
“So light, neat and simple to use”
