We install and range of loft ladders to suite most homes and situations. These include Abru aluminium 2 and 3 section ladders., wooden, concertina and telescopic loft ladders. Pictures of some of the ladders we fit can be found in the gallery section.
All our loft ladders will support 150kg (23 stone) and comply with quality standard EN14975. If you have seen a particular loft ladder that isn\'t in our normal range ofproducts that you would like we would be happy to provide you with quotation to supply and fit or install only.
In addition to the ladder we can create a new loft hatch, expand and existing hatch and install loft boarding and a light.
If you live in a home which is more than 15 years old, it\'s likely that your existing hatch is made out of either ply wood or MDF. It\'s also likely that the hatch is the \"push up\" type, with no hinges making it difficult to open. We can make a new door that hinges down or better still enlarge the opening and install a new white PVC hatch. You will then be able to open the loft hatch and bring down the Loft Ladder with your new loft access pole.
We are able to fit a light in your loft to make it easier and safer to find your way round when your up there. We prefer to install a fluorescent light or lights as we have found that these provide the best illumination for a loft space.
We will install a switch near the ladder in the loft so that it is easy to find as you climb into your loft.
Why not consider one of our loft packages which includes a ladder, boarding and light for the complete loft access solution - increasing the size of your home storage.
If your home is not insulated, or if your insulation is not up to current recommendations, we can install the insulation to your loft before we lay down any boarding.
Not only will your home then benefit from additional storage space - you\'ll see reduced energy bills too ! And to ensure that your insulation works efficiently, we install the boarding on raised timbers to allow space for the insulation.
More Than Loft Ladders has installed over 216,000 square feet of loft boarding - the equivalent of 2 football pitches
We use 18 mm thick tongue and groove loft boarding that we cut to fit the shape of your loft. Most people will ask us to board the usable middle section of their loft where the roof is highest and they can move around freely. Typically this is an area of 50 - 200 square feet but we can board right into the apex of your loft if required. All our flooring is installed securely on raised timbers to allow space for the insulation and secured with screws. Loft boarding is an ideal solution for storing those things that you don\'t need every day.
