My first post so please be kind :-)

Purchased this last week for £47.99. Ready to install today but had no instructions so went on the screwfix website and noticed it had been reduced again! Got a refund and re-purchased at £27.49! Installed today, top quality and total bargain in my opinion!

Cheers

I fitted a smilar loft ladder myself about 6 months ago.

I am yet to fit a hatch. It looks a bit of a nightmare to set the hatch up.

Spookily enough I have been planning on doing just that tomorrow.

Anyone who has fitted one of these loft ladders got any tips on fitting the hatch? Anything to look out for?

You never know I may even read the instructions...

Welcome to hukd!

Great post.

I know what you mean about the hatch - that was the hardest part since it used to be a push up one!

The ladder itself is great - I paid £15 on ebay for mine so this price looks great. Heat added.

Yes....don't use MDF for the hatch door. These hatches are prone to some stress & therefore the screws holding the hinges need to have a solid grip else you'll end up with a loft on yer heed. I can't recall the name of the board best used, but it''s made up of thin strips of ply, to make a board about 18mm thick
#17
^ 18mm ply wood?
good find OP!

I added it to trolley and all I can see is checkout .. not "collect in store" or something along those lines.

Whilst the instructions seem comprehensive they seem to be missing some vital information.

1. How small can your loft hatch be to accomodate the ladders?
2. What clearance is needed in the loft for the ladders to work properly?

I also like this bit from the instructions

Only use a ladder for a maximum of 15-30 minutes at a time:?
Does it need a rest if you use it any longer:)

Screwfix don't have any sort of website link up between the site and stores. You can ring their call centre who will check stock availability for you, but they won't be able to reserve it. They're like Argos used to be ten years ago - they've just gotten stock checkers in store next to the catalogues!

This is gonna get hot on this site. Lots of people needing to store all that early christmas shopping and other early shopping that will be of use some day (or impulse buys.)
#29
Great find!

Our male chicken of a builder failed to install our all-in-one loft hatch and ladder when our bathroom & toliet was knocked through into one, just putting a piece of MDF over the hole! I've been looking to get one of these! Great price too!

Once again Hot UK Deals brings up a deal on something I'm looking to buy!

[Edit]: If anyone has any tips on installing a proper hatch door, then please let me know / post a link.

You will idealy need 2 people, one in loft and one to push hinged door up to get it level. You could do it with just one person by screwing a screw into top of door and pulling it up but it is very hard to pull up and mark all holes

You can't order online and collect in store. You can't check store levels on the internet either.

It's a case of ringing your local store or going to the store.

bought mine from wickes as it was cheapest at the time, this is a great price!

instructions were not too great though lol and yes mine are youngman

i have used mdf for the hatch which i bought from b&q, cut to size, painted it and fitted hinges and is fine.
the ladder hinges are screwed to timber inside the loft and is solid, to open the ladders i just drop the ladders down, and pull them down and out from the plastic stop locks in the runs and extend. not sure if this is 100% the correct way of fitting them as instructions were useless but they work great for me. the lock stops are a good idea otherwise would have been a nightmare trying to get them to clear the hatch as my loft opening isnt that big and has beams kinda in the way. anyways great ladders!
#34
Been wanting these for a while to save me having to jump up and down from the top of my step ladders (kind of dangerous, especially if your hatch is at the top of your stairs). Great find - thanks. Ordered mine already :thumbsup:
#35
I happened to try buying this in the shop (not store!) today although I hadn't seen the hot deal. They are still £48 in the Sheffield shop so I believe this deal is online only. I bought the 2 piece one instead as my ceiling height fitted into the range of either. I've just been fitting that and it seems okay except for the screw heads being a bit soft.
#36
well done keep them coming .voted hot

just been on the website - back up to £49.99 boo Iwanted one of these

I did my loft out last week (Still aching from it now!)

I used a Youngman Easiway ladder which looks the same as this one. Very easy to fit, just make sure when they state the floor to ceiling height you use the floor of your loft for the ceiling height so the angle of the ladder is correct when it locks into place.

The hatch its self, make sure you strenghten around all the sides, i used 4" x 2" wood and used joist hangers (B&Q £1.18 each) to hold them in place and also to hold the joist i cut in place as well.

For the actual door i used some floor boards i had 18mm thick tongue and grooved held together with 2 pieces of wood across the back top and bottom (leaving space for the catch when shutting the loft door so it can be held in place)

All in all it was hard work but well worth it, i even added extra insulation (from Homebase BOGOF that was available a week or so ago) under all the 8' x 2' P5 boards that i boarded it out with.

I searched the net prior to doing it all for all the rules and regs etc and found some useful site added below:
