Vertical loft ladders for installation on mezzanines or in wall hatches…


Vertical loft ladders are specially modified retractable ladders that stow in a vertical position. They are designed for gaining access into lofts, onto mezzanine floors or even into plant/boiler rooms. They provide an excellent space-saving solution for this challenging application.

When not needed, our vertical loft ladders retract away.  As a result, they can be positioned neatly behind a door or wall hatch, with minimal protrusion into the space behind. A spring-assisted mechanism allows for safe and easy operation when the ladder is needed.

Vertical Loft Ladders

Our range of loft ladders for vertical installation applications

Retractable vertical loft ladders

Our product range includes the Supreme Vertical loft ladder, which is a heavy duty (200kg load capacity per step) retractable aluminium loft ladder. The Supreme Vertical loft ladder features an insulated hatch box and door to help keep warm air in the building and minimise energy costs. As the door is opened, the spring assisted ladder gently unfolds onto the floor below.

The Elite vertical loft ladder features the same high performance heavy duty loft ladder as the Supreme Vertical, but is supplied without the hatch box. Therefore, it can be conveniently placed behind an existing door, or discretely positioned on a mezzanine floor.

Finally, the Piccolo Premium retractable loft ladder completes our vertical loft ladder offering.  The Piccolo Premium is a lighter-duty version of the Elite, but it’s compact design makes it perfect for very narrow openings.

Elite with black powder coat finish. For use on mezzanine floors and wall loft access hatches.

Counter-balanced for safe operation

All of our vertical concertina loft ladders feature a spring counter-balance system. This is particularly important for this type of ladder. This is because it ensures the person using the ladder maintains full control throughout. Also, it stops the ladder falling down under its own weight.

Another important safety feature is the gas-strut dampening hinge. This assists with rotating the mezzanine ladder to-and-from the stowed position. Again, it reduces the amount of effort needed to use the ladder.

Both of these features can be seen in the video below.
