Compact loft ladder for fire escape
Eversley Building Services Ltd required a roof access ladder for emergency use in the event of a fire. However, the application presented many challenges, in particular the small skylight aperture. As such, a compact loft ladder was needed. Furthermore, it needed to be easy and safe to use. The Piccolo Premium ticked all the boxes.
“The install was very straight forward and the client was extremely happy with the product.”
Mark Winscott, Eversley Building Services Ltd
Piccolo Premium Vertical loft ladder offers innovative access via glass loft hatch
The glass loft hatch in this Victorian family home provides a valuable source of natural light. However, it is also the only means of access to the loft. The home owners wanted a loft ladder that maintained the period features, did not block the light and could fit within the existing small opening. Therefore, finding the right loft ladder was very difficult.
A space-saving loft ladder that could be stowed away from the opening was needed. The Piccolo Premium Vertical offered the perfect solution.
