A Youngman Loft Ladder providing access to Loft conversion

If your UK home has a loft or attic, chances are you're using it for storage, which is a great way to keep clutter in your house properly under control. But have you considered the rickety staircase or aged ladder that you must climb to access the loft? In many cases, it's just an accident waiting to happen. For your own safety, you should consider replacing it. Here's some information about loft ladders and the types available.

Loft Ladder Overview

The first step in a loft ladder installation or replacement is to decide what type of ladder you want. While some customers may find that standard size attic ladders will suit their needs, it's also likely that you may need a bespoke attic ladder or attic stairs. Even if you think you might not have space for a new loft ladder or folding staircase, it's likely that a bespoke, made-to-measure solution can be devised for you. Of course, a good range of standard sizes is generally available as well. Materials typically used include wood, aluminium and steel. There are even electric loft ladders that operate with the touch of a button. Most ladders for lofts fall into the following categories: folding, telescopic and sliding.

The Folding Loft Ladder

Generally constructed in 2 or 3 sections, folding loft ladders have large hatches that make it easy to handle large or bulky items. If you're limited on space, this type of wooden loft ladder or aluminium loft ladder is a good choice. The sections of the ladder stack on top of each other when the loft is closed. When the loft is opened, the sections unfold and lock the ladder securely in a fully straight position. It's important to note that aluminium ladders, while lighter in weight may flex, a fact that some people find disconcerting when they climb or descend the ladder.

The Telescopic or Concertina Loft Ladder

This type of ladder is perfect in situations where space is a significant concern, especially the hatch.  A telescopic loft ladder is also a good choice for applications with high ceilings, since these ladders are both stable and compact. In addition, many people choose concertina ladders for roof access and vertical openings. A motorised version of a telescopic ladder is usually available.  Choose a concertina ladder if you plan to access your loft frequently.  

The Sliding Loft Ladder

These are made in 2 or 3 sections that nest together to conserve space. Sliding ladders are usually more cost effective than other types because they attach directly to the attic floor joists with hinges. The ladder is operated by pulling the two nested sections down and then sliding the lower section down to meet the floor. These ladders are light in weight and easy to operate, especially if made of aluminium.

Loft ladders are the perfect solution for UK homeowners with limited space and budgets.

Just a quick note to say Thank You for a wonderful customer experience. Everything from browsing your website, choosing and paying for my ladders to the delivery of the ladders was easy and painless! The delivery lady even carried them to my garage for me.

The ladders are extremely good, but the price was even better.  You were so much better value than rival companies and yet you still delivered free of charge. Many thanks to you and your staff for a great purchase.
