Long time lurker, but 1st post. Don't fret though - I'm prepared for the the wrath of some of those not so friendly hukd users all set to blast me for messing up! ;-)
Was looking for loft ladder when I spotted this, which for me is much more flexible as it doesn't require loads of fitting and is usable for other applications too.
