great just what i need, thanks a lot
#6
I was just about the insulate my 'hatch' :-) as I believe there is a draft from there, how would you do that with a ladder mounted? Just wondering...
#7
Can anyone suggest a suitable loft hatch to go with this. My current hatch opens upwards.
#8
Anyone got one of these that might know...
Is the hatch required? We want a ladder to get up to the roof inside the garage. Would this work the same way without a hatch, so we could just push it up out the way when not in use? Thanks for any advice!

You need to check what size of hatch is needed for the ladder and the clearance you need in the loft (usually tells you in the ladder instructions)

These ladders are usually fixed to the loft floor or joist rather than the hatch so you should be okay.

I tried to get one of these for my loft, but found that the clearance required both in the opening and in the loft meant that I couldn't get one to fit. It really is worth having a look at the instructions and doing a bit of measuring, otherwise you'll just be taking it back the following day.

Good deal though, not seen one that cheap.

I used this on from Wickes when I put my loft ladder in

Also worth mentioning that after taking out the old hatch I had to cut back the plasterboard around the old opening before the new hatch would fit. An easy job to do just measure carefully so you dont take out too much of the ceiling and end up with a big gap when the hatch is fitted.

You click on the OP's deal at the bottom where it says 15% voucher deal.
#15
If you look at the top of this page at the actual deal there is a section at the bottom of that with a dotted line round it and a clicky link for the 15% voucher :thumbsup:


15% clicky link has disappeared since I posted this
#16
I have the 3 section version of this ladder as I have high ceilings - note that its fine for occasional use where the loft is used for storage, but if you intend to use the loft regularly as another room (games room, den, etc) you'll want to get a better ladder. I can't use mine without wearing trainers as the rungs hurt my feet, plus it flexes quite a bit (I'm 14.5 stone).

But I'd still need a good latch, which from the looks of things would be around £5-10. And also I would need to take care to make sure it's nicely insulated. I don't mind paying £30 to save quite a lot of hassle. Will give the wickes one a go, and see what happens.
#19
where's the voucher?
#20
I might be blind, but i can't see the 15% voucher there... Are you sure it's still valid?

Thanks very much for that! Is your name Brian Giddins? That link points to the voucher for that name :) Heat added anyhow!

i have this ladder, was boarding the loft so needed a one for future access.
i was surprised to find it came with all the bits to convert your existing hatch to a hinged one.
a rod with a hook on the end to pull down the ladder and at the top of the hook a key to turn the lock, once fitted.
it was real easy to fix the ladder and suits my needs just fine.
#28
Great price, and a good basic loft ladder, but they are very flimsy, meaning they are only suitable to for those of light to average weight (unlike myself as I'm 6'4"!), and also bear in mind that you may be carry items to/from loft, adding to your overall weight.I know someone who had a very nasty fall after using one of these, as they catches snapped.Too be honest if you're going to fit a loft ladder, I'd highly recommend you buy something a bit better made.I recently fitted the wooden ladder from wickes (£99.99), and although obviously dearer, it is much better suited to the job, and is very strong, as we used this afterwards for getting heavy boards, into the loft for flooring.

I take it you've strengthened the joists too then:roll:

Yes indeed, we put wood beams in, to carry new floor joists at a slightly higher level, as the existing ones were not suitable for carrying any load, especially as the water tank needed relocating, to maximise space.It wasn't a loft room by any means, but the customer wanted a good size storage area, without worrying about the ceiling coming down.Of course on a modern house with trusses, it's almost impossible to very difficult to do, without major work.Although I wonder how many 'DIYer's' have at tried laying flooring for a basic room on these trusses?, which are basically only designed for supporting the roof weight, and ceiling.I saw someone who'd done just that on TV once, with obvious results, ie collapsing!

when I got a one of these a few years back it came with a latch that you just fitted yourself
