Average price...1p cheaper from Amazon delivered
If I was capable of installing this I'd get one.
Measuring (H) 139? How tiny is the man in the picture?

Am actually curious if that's a typo since it seems absurdly short, especially with it saying that it should be suitable for heights up to 3m

The sections are 139mm
The treads are really narrow, and quite painful to walk up without shoes on, especially if you are up and down carrying stuff (Christmas decoration boxes etc...).

Also, in a standard size opening, it's not the easiest thing getting through the hatch without a bit of contorting at the top.

Almost wish I had stuck with the step ladders.
can confirm it does not come with the hole on top

Is it better to get a wooden loft ladder (a Keylite or LWK or something else) or an Easiway aluminium ladder?

Wanting to get a loft ladder installed and board up some or all of the loft space floor to store things like empty product boxes.. I'd rather have a decent ladder with good rung width to make it more comfortable to climb up and down and be rather stable. Although the ladder is not likely to get frequent use. Already got a hatch in the ceiling but this may need enlarging.

Any suggestions or recommendations, most welcome. Cheers.

I haven't used a wooden ladder so can't comment on that - but when I got the loft boarded last year we went for an aluminium ladder and it works really well, feels sturdy and is easy to pull down/fold back etc. Not sure if that helps enough, but thats just my personal opinion on the matter

Do you know which aluminium ladder got installed...and can share the information The ladder probably still has a product label attached on a side.

Just seems to be lots of choices and fitting companies to go with for ladders and boarding products.

I assume you went through a loft ladder company to supply and fit? Also wondering if that is best to do that or to source and buy a ladder and then get someone to fit it.

This one wickes.co.uk/You…028 , got a local builder to fit it - asked for his recommendation for the ladder, then did my 30 min google research and zeroed in on this one - bought from Wickes and he fitted it for me along with the boarding of the loft. Both the boarding (about 15 feet by 30 feet - again got all the boarding material from Wickes and provided him with that) and ladder fitting costed me ~350 in labour if I still remember - and this is London - if thats any consideration. Hope that helps.

Would love to see understand how easy or difficult that really is. Not really to save money more for the challenge and being proud of your accomplishments once is done.

Assuming people are talking about the complete wooden loftladders that include a hatch, they are a pain to fit as your housing will need to be changed to allow the new hatchway to fit.

An aluminium loftladder will fit into the majority of existing loft hatches without any additional work.

Great if you live within their catchment area: spacefindersloftladders.co.uk/whe…rs/


London always seems to have a premium for building type of work.

They also got the loft floor boarded within the £350 bill. That is probably a lot more time consuming.

Is the Easiway ladder the one to go for? Due to cost and function? I've seen it advertised on a few loft ladder fitting websites. What alternative would you recommend is worth a look at?

The £350 in labour was for the boarding of the loft (including cutting the old unwanted water tank out), fitting of the ladder and installing a tube light in the loft.

The 3 section Easy stow from Abru...same as this and available from Amazon is easy to fit....should have 150kg rating.

The ladder it self is 6 screws us 2 extra bolts for adjustment to get it to the right angle. You might want to change the screws though as they can be cheap Chinese rubbish ones.

The most fiddly bit to fit is the hatch mechanism as it requires bits on the hatch and surround to line up...simple if you've done it before but more complicated if you haven't fitted one before.

I would say 3 hours at the most...a lot less if you've fitted one before.

Ah ok.

That's not bad then..I thought it was just the ladder.

Assuming the hole is big enough just take it out of the bag and screw it in.

Thanks. I will take a look. 150kg minimum is what I want.


I suppose boarding a loft is fairly straightforward and repetitive. It's quite dusty up there and having to carry lots of boards up there means it may just be worth me getting someone in to do it, to save some energy. I do have face masks and a Makita cordless drill and countersink bits. Need to get some quotes and see how shocking they are!
