Case Studies

Elite Vertical loft Ladder fitted into New Build home. Premier Loft Ladders

Elite Vertical loft ladder proves to be the perfect solution for a New Build project in France

Jill Ranford and Patrick Taggart are the proud owners of a beautiful new build home in Southern France. The main bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with access to a loft via a wall hatch located 2.7m up from the floor. Therefore a loft ladder was required that could be easily operated at that height and could be folded behind the wall hatch door without taking up too much loft space. The Elite Vertical Loft Ladder proved to be the perfect solution for Jill and Patrick’s needs.

“The Elite is now installed in our loft doorway and performs beautifully. It is so unlike cheap loft ladders that I’ve come across in the past”

Jill Ranford

Elite access to rooflight

Making the most of outdoor space in an urban environment is very important. With land at a premium, more people are converting their flat roof space to a garden retreat. How do you get to it though? A full size staircase takes up a lot of room and can be quite expensive, especially for occasional use. Doone Lambert had exactly that problem at her Hammersmith, London apartment.

As such, Doone chose the Elite Loft Ladder. The Elite saved both space and money, while still providing safe and convenient access to the flat roof. Furthermore, the custom grey-white powder coat finish meant that it nicely matched the room’s decor.
