There is multiple ways to help others

If sunlux were to offer a 30% discount that I saw I would post that.

If I see someone with less experience advertise a more main stream retailers product that is of lower quality than is the standard out there I would, as I have, add in the discussion why I consider it a cold deal and vote cold.

The question becomes is your aim to have an open forum with free discussion on the deal posted or collecting medals on a superficial level. As you put it crack on.

It is their normal prices and the quality of the product they offer I quite rate having seen both what you are offering and sun Lux's - installed one for a family friend not too long back.

Not sure why I would post their normal prices on here - just as you are suggesting a deal I am pointing out that others consider a more specialist company that also offer more variation to cater for different requirements whilst the product being cheaper and imo better on several fronts.

Any opinions on how this ladder compares to the Abru Timber loft Ladder (link below)

There are multiple ways yes, and you are free to write any comment you wish - but as i suggested if you feel it is a better option - post a deal to help others so that it gains more exposure. Hardly anything wrong in my suggestion is there?

Will leave it there and wish you a good night.
Cheers

The fixings between the ladder and the hatch itself appear quite weak in comparison to the OP to be fair. And also seem to have a premium delivery charge to quite a big part of the UK !

don't get me wrong - screwfix (B&Q) wooden ladders are a step up from those metal ladders in the loft that wobble.

But you are looking in the wrong place on where you want the ladder supported - the guides down and the attachments should not need to as strong as the one holding it to the frame at the top - there is a big difference between the two but which of them has the ladder attached to the frame and which has it attached to the hatch and only the hatch attached to the frame?

The thickness of the hatch is also the other tell tale sign and can also be seen on the finish between the two.

There is the big difference to the action - the Sunlux mech literally from down and folded is pushed back by your pinky to start and smoothly guides itself into place. I have not seen anything close in the main stream.

It is still their RRP though which is why I would not post.

edit: forgot the handrail which is an extra from screwfix/B&q.

Availability and ease of pickup is always going to be in screwfix's favour - no idea on what their extra charges are for Scotland and Ireland

I have this ladder and it’s great, been in place for about 10 years now and still going strong!

Sorry if I'm being thick but I'm a bit lost.

Firstly, the handrail seems to an extra from Sunlux too. I'm not sure why you mentioned that as a plus for Sunlux.

Secondly, I can't find delivery prices on their website - even on the page about delivery. Screwfix is half a mile from my house, so I can't see how Sunlux could ever be cheaper for me, unless they do free delivery.

So the one in screwfix is £99

The one closer in specification to sunlux's is £129

Sunlux has one at £80 plus £9.95 delivery unless you are in scotland or Ireland (there are also some variations to cater for different opening sizes etc)

OP, is this actually a Hot Deal in that there is a price reduction?
So, how hard are these to fit? I've looked before but it just looks like a nightmare to cut a bigger hole in the ceiling and make it look tidy. Im fairly good with DIY(just finishing a full bathroom refit) but cutting through beams does worry me!

get up and measure the gap in your joists. in modern houses it will likely be the right gap for these ladders.
Our house is 20 years old.
ladder fitted without cutting joists.
Hammered out the old hatch.
Marked out the gap required. Cut with a plasterboard knife. very easy.I marked the corners and drilled cutting holes. cut the long length from the loft side so the joists could guide me. then did the short sides from underneath.
Should be a 2 man job to fit the hatch but I was impatient and did it a wooden support to hold it in place.
Im still boarding out the loft so havent tidied round the hatch yet but will just use some skirting wood type material to make it neat.
Wouldnt rate it as a big job if you are relativly handy. Just daunting cutting an big hole in the ceiling.

Cheers for the info, the house is 30yrs so I may get away with it. I'll do some further research doesnt sound too bad though
