​I know their building them like match boxes these days, but that's ridiculous.
Thanks. I needed one. Will check it out tomorrow. Then I'll chase my builder to come fit it. Builders are so busy these days.

in the loft there should be at least 2m vertically and horizontally for the mechanism to work imho
this simply doesn't exist in new homes
We had something like this in our old house which we later replaced with wooden fold down steps. Depending how often you intend to use your loft I'd recommend the wooden step type over these much easier for lugging stuff up & down than on ladders. The steps are around £100 but includes full hatch which may take a little more work fitting but certainly worth it and looks great.

Don't have that problem with the wooden steps as they fold into hatch. The only room needed is to fold them out from where the hatch drops down to the floor.

I tried to pay by paypal and I couldn't order on the end. Guted
My house was built over 70yrs ago and i assumed a loft was a loft but the ladder needs a lot of room to be able to work with the hatch.
I'm back to passing the hatch door back to someone on the ground as i go up the ladder

Certainly only you will need to reduce your current opening down using timber not too difficult only will need to make good again with plaster/paint on ceiling and of course you now have a smaller hatch.
I'd recommend a joiner/builder/handyman to install if you are not too clever at diy as you need to make sure it's installed properly and also drop down ladder will need cutting down to correct level of your landing floor height, this took me four cuts to get right as if you cut it short that's not good.
Had both types wooden and metal in houses over the years, would always buy wood over metal as the metal ladders are freezing cold in the winter and the wooden ones fold open real easy on hinges, they stow away in a smaller area unlike these type which have to be slid down like a conventional ladder
Got to my local b&q at 8 today and plenty > 10 was left. They were still showing the regular pice but it was a red sticker. Scanned it with the b&q app and it scanned at £45 and same at the till.
Few left in B&Q Acton (A40)
These ladders are very weak, be careful if you plan to use it regularly
Anyone wanting one in Luton will be pleased to know there are lots left.
On the B &Q one check the weight limit .

They should sell well in Luton.. lots of people hiding things in the loft round there
Used one of these for occasional access as we have boiler in attic. so it was more about access.

Great ladder for the price, alloy and weighs nothing, and stows away easily. Had no issues with the construction of it so far, but I'm not a lard **** and not moving excess weight to the roof ( haven't got the support up there to do that anyway).
If you are a big fat lard **** then you might want to exercise care when using one of these ladders obviously

But Im average ish weight for my height 6ft over 13 stone if not more and no signs of any weakness yet !

The hardest bit was just getting around to fitting, do it carefully and you will be very pleased, far better than stowing away ladders etc.

I'll stick with my step ladder, i never knew my real ladder.

Old Victorian houses often have very high ceilings, upwards of 10ft - this extends less than that. Just make sure it's not going to dangle!
Thanks OP got one at Wigan pallet full at 1130.

It depends on you, the metal ones are noisy especially after using it for a while but obvioulsy the wood ones should be quieter, if the noise isn't an issue and the wood ones do need a bigger opening to fit so another consideration....possibly.

I think so, because 114 is 9 ft 6" and these ladders are 9 ft 10". You're good to go!

I'd say probably not, you need to account for the height from floor to the top of the hatch (not the ceiling) and also take into account that it should have a bit of an angle on the ladder when extended so you're not going straight up
I went and saw it today. It's just a ladder. I may go for one of those wooden ones

I bought a 2 section loft ladder from screwfix couple years back 34 quid which is fixed into loft and slides down. Not sure why u would need a 3 section ladder unless you have really high ceilings!
