What are the main benefits of wooden loft ladders?
The benefits of wooden loft ladders are that they have a quieter operation compared to metal loft ladders. They also offer comfort to yourself especially underfoot with sturdy, non-slip steps. Your hand grip whilst climbing a wooden ladder benefits from the smooth, warm feel of the timber. With the Stira Heavy Duty Timber Folding Loft Ladder it also comes complete with two timber handrails for a safe and secure climb. Wooden loft ladders complete with a hatch do not take up extra space in the loft as the ladder will fold on itself and sit securely on the trapdoor.
How do you fit a wooden loft ladder?
The first stage to fitting a wooden loft ladder is creating or modifying your ceiling opening to a size ready to take the product. You will then need to prepare the ladder by attaching it to the trapdoor and installing the spring arm mechanism (product dependent). Once the ladder preparation has been done the timber casing frame needs to be secured to the joists by drilling and screwing into place. You will then need to lower the loft ladder to the floor and make any adjustments to the ladder length (by cutting) so it suits your ceiling height. To complete the job, decoration to the edge of the loft opening can be achieved by fixing architraves.
Do all of your wooden loft ladders come with a hatch?
Most of our wooden loft ladders will come with a hatch making a strong and stable access solution into your loft application. They will also include a spring assist mechanism to aid trapdoor lowering and the trapdoors come with varying levels of insulation. Our best insulated wooden loft ladder is the Dolle ClickFix 76 Timber Folding Loft Ladder which offers a low U-value making it more energy efficient compared to other ladders. We can offer a wooden loft ladder without a hatch this is a one-piece ladder known as the Dolle Straight Flight Wooden Loft Ladder ideal for mezzanine applications.
