The Piccolo Premium loft ladder is easy to fit and made from aluminium alloy components.  The Piccolo Premium’s compact, space-saving concertina design makes it the perfect loft ladder for very small ceiling openings or use in an existing hatch box.

What makes this different to the standard Piccolo is the inclusion of a spring mechanism to assist with opening and retracting the loft ladder; making it very easy to operate and improving safety.
