Ecco retractable loft ladder from Premier Loft Ladders. Insulated and airtight hatch makes it ideal for use in a bedroom or study

Retractable loft ladder is the ideal solution for small ceiling openings…

A retractable loft ladder is simply a ladder designed to neatly stow away in a ceiling aperture when not in use. The term is commonly associated with telescopic and concertina loft ladders, as these are the most compact types.

A brilliant example of a retractable loft ladder is the ‘Ecco’. It is specially designed for small ceiling openings due to its space-saving concertina ladder. Furthermore, it features an insulated and airtight wooden hatch box.

Manufactured from light-weight, durable aluminium components, the Ecco is easy to operate. Furthermore, it is tested to EN 14975 and can support loads of 150 kg per step. Also, the Ecco can be supplied with a telescopic handrail.

Benefits of the Ecco retractable loft ladder…

  • Space-saving retractable ladder suitable for a small ceiling opening
  • Lightweight and durable aluminium ladder
  • Easy to operate
  • Load capacity of 150 kg per step
  • Hatch box trap door finished in white on both sides
  • Minimal protrusion into loft space
  • Insulated  and airtight loft hatch, therefore helping to reduce energy costs

Standard sizes or made-to-measure…

The Ecco is available to buy from our web site in a range of standard sizes. Opening lengths come in either 1100mm or 1200mm. While opening widths come in 600mm or 700mm. The standard sizes also cater for floor-to-ceiling heights between 2250mm and 2750mm.  As a result, the standard range of Ecco loft ladders suit most applications.

However, the Ecco retractable loft ladder can also be made-to-measure. As a result, you get a loft ladder to fit the exact dimensions of your ceiling opening and room height. This has the benefit of an optimum fit for easier installation and can avoid the need for costly ceiling alterations.

Alternative retractable loft ladders…

If the Ecco is not what you are looking for there is a wide range of retractable loft ladders to choose from. For example, the Piccolo Premium loft ladder features the same space-saving, lightweight and durable ladder mechanism as the Ecco. However, it is supplied without a hatch. The easy to install Piccolo Premium is therefore ideal for retrofit above an existing drop-down loft hatch.

Alternatively, the heavy duty Elite and Supreme (pictured here) retractable ladders offer superb strength and durability. As such, they have a load rating of 200kg per tread. They also benefit from a highly insulated loft hatch with spring-assisted operation, requiring less than 3kg of operating force.

The MiniLine offers the ideal alternative where fire protection is needed. It features the same aluminium ladder as the Ecco, as well as a compact wooden hatch.  However, the MiniLine has the added benefit of either 30 or 60 minute fire protection.
