It's probably worth looking at the previous post for this item (same price) if you are considering buying one

Thanks. I did run a search for "Loft hatch ladder" in HUKD but it didnt bring that up. Maybe shouldnt have used "Hatch" in the search. I simply found this on Amazon and then checked to see if there was a better price.

It doesn't matter, the previous deal had expired anyway. Just people might find some useful information there
i bought this recently its very good
Wish I got one of these instead of a freestanding ladder. Better at keeping out of sight and no jumping to reach the loft hatch
Not sure this will work for me? My hatch has to be pushed up and in to the loft. Looking at the pics it may block me from doing this?

I have the same issue with my loft, but really need a ladder to climb up instead of dragging the free standing one from the garage, may need to change the hatch opening

Our hatch used to be like yours when we first bought our house. Get a quote from a carpenter to open towards you instead. We opted to open the hatch wider (as was very narrow) and put in a wider frame with the ladder. Ours is wooden and is built onto the frame...

You can still use this ladder with your attic but that means you will have to open the hatch and then pull the ladder down. My dad has done it that way..

Had this fitted just under a month ago and so far no issues! Easy to pull down and push back up. Obviously need to check it’s ‘closed’ length and therefore which side of the hatch you want it to go in the direction of.

Decent loft ladder for the money
Seems good price
The Abru version costs more but has a thumping great spring on top which does all the work of raising and lowering. You won't get one for much less than £90 but is worth considering if someone has limited strength especially when reaching up. Heat anyway.
So this fits any loft hatches wider than 0.38m?

How do you get a non-sprung version back up there? Is non-sprung version suitable for people who are getting on a bit and/or aren't too tall?

Depends on ceiling height, length of pole, etc. Non sprung versions work perfectly well but the spring makes life easier.

As you can see as they pull out it wobbles and had an elderly relative have a renovation with one of these supplied and to be fair not suitable for this type of user

Replaced it for them with a wooden sprung loaded already attached to hatch from here sunluxroofwindows.co.uk/312…tch

Suspect the person renovating had them left over as once you bring in the cost of hatch ( that itself needed ladders to get to) there really could have not been much in it.

Only reason I can envisge using this this is not to is to have an opening that you can not extend to the min 80x60 they offer
Mine is rock solid and my granny has no probs with raising it although she does sometimes stand in the wrong place when lowering it! Wooden ladders tend to be much heavier than aluminium ones. The Abru weighs 6.7kg and has spring assistance while some of the wooden ones weigh over 20kg. As long as the spring can cope with the weight it looks good.

The elderly person in question is in her 90's and suffers osteoporosis - so stability is fairly important.

Besides the farce of the insulated hatch the builder used (meaning steps required before even opening) as I say they wobbled hence found it very interesting that your video from the manufacturer shows that same wobble.

In comparison to you video where on the abru you have to pull down, click the sprung loaded latches on one side in three places (and the correct 3 places) then on other side turn the latches to secure. The pull down's the one I have linked you open pull down and extend the ladder.

Want to know the best, the builder when challenged fell off as it wobbled whilst going into the loft (caught himself where as this relative that may well have been months recovering) and suggested perhaps she should get her children over when she needed loft access (elsewhere for their renovation he has actually done a fantastic job though).

But yes they are heavier to put in place but that adds to the stability compared to lightweight ones - but then it was not this elderly relative installing them and around the same price (by the time you include the hatch) I know which I would prefer as long as you have an opening or can extend the opening to fit.

that made me laugh - good spot
Great ladder, easy to fit
did this come with the pole to drag the ladder?
Our loft hatch opens upwards, any suggestions for a ladder product which I could install without having to change the opening of the hatch to downwards would be much appreciated
thanks!
Just purchased and installed yesterday - these are similar to abru (same company) but they are not spring loaded. Very light and managable anyway. Easy and quick installation. Could be too weak for bigger person as they flex a bit. Worth £55.
Vistrix08/11/2019 09:17

Not necessarily. Most loft hatches are more than 38cm wide, but the rate limiting measurement is the clearance arc which needs a minuimum of 71cm. If you have a shallow pitched roof you might not have enough clearance.
Got one in 2017 for £50, very decent loft ladder. Will likely be buying same one for my new house.
HEAT!

Saved me a night of googling too.
How does one install this on the loft?
Thanks for posting we have added this to the Highlights section
