Questions and answers

0 votes
q: Is there much difference in the weight and therefore the ease of operation between the pine and aluminium stairs?
a: Yes they are bit lighter, but the main part of the mechanism is sprung, so it's not a huge issue - only when folding the lower leg elements up before closing really.

q: As I want to have the ladder close to the side of the roof, what clearance does it need above the ceiling?
a: It will need approx 30cm (8cm deep ladder folded x 3 + 3cm hatch thickness + plus some room to move).

We purchased this for our new build after shopping around and comparing similar products. Price and the aluminium steps won us over. Install was a breeze. Would recommend this product.

My husband loves this product because it has made his life so much easier in accessing our attic and more potential storage solutions. Instead of having to pull out a ladder or scaffolding all he needs to do is reach up and pull down. Having some physical limitations, it only took him (with a little help from me!) a couple of hours to make some minor modifications and install these steps ...... great!

Very happy with the attic stairs. We got the aluminium ones. We had to modify ours as we had a larger hole and existing doors and most stairs only come in one size opening. That took a bit of work but has worked very well. Finally cleaning up all the old stuff that has been up there for years. Also had to space out the ladder for more toe room also.

Very nicely made product: works well.

These attic stairs are very well made and thought out. What the pictures do not show is how the trapdoor drops just a short way when you unlatch it. In this position, you won't knock your head on it, but it is easy to reach and pull down until it locks. You then unfold the ladder, and up you go. Similarly, when stowing, the ladder folds up on the top of the trapdoor. No unlatching of anything, you just push the door up and the springs pull it up to that just-open position. It is then just a small push with the supplied locking rod, rotate the latch, and the assembly is completely stowed. I had to do some demo and reconstruction to fit these stairs, as the original opening was 650 mm square: the exact size of this set is 1180 x 580 mm. A couple of hints on fitting the stairs: 1. Unscrew the ladder from the trapdoor. It makes fitting the trapdoor and surround much easier by reducing the weight. It is easy to re-fit the ladder once the trapdoor is in place. It is also easier to cut the ladder (to suit stud heights less than 2.7 metres) if it is not attached to the trapdoor. 2. If you need to cut the ladder where there is a tread, you will be pleased to know that the treads are screwed in place, not rivetted. Removing a tread is very easy. 3. If the trapdoor surround is deeper than the joists, screw a couple of battens to the sides of the surround so that they rest on the joists while you screw the surround in place. This is safer than the cord method shown in the fitting instructions. 4. Do use screws for fixing, not nails. Screws are more secure, and can be backed out if the assembly needs adjusting up or down. 5. You might need to buy some new architrave to make a neat surround for the trapdoor. You will need little over 3.6 metres for the job. Overall, very pleased with the product. We have added a new storage room to our house with these stairs and some plywood flooring.

Fairly easy to install. I will eventually change 2 of the side mounting bolts for the next size up and most definitely change the latch for one that won't rattle loose during an earthquake. Other than that the stairs are much safer than the step ladder I was using previously.

Excellent product but needs a couple of mods.

Installation went well and will be a very useful addition to the garage. However I would suggest that the 4 bolts holding the top stair section to the cover are made one size larger for longevity. And you also need to fit a better latching system than the one installed - it is the first thing that will let go during an earthquake. During installation from the top lowering it into the opening (it was a little tight) the latch came open - it is very loose when closed and the amount of vibration it would receive during an earthquake (and I know how much happens then) would cause the latch to allow the cover to drop (hopefully when there is nothing under it).
