Is this comment serious? Heat loss through the loft hatch is essentially that, heat loss through the loft hatch........so buy an insulated loft hatch not insulated wooden ladders

"Heavy metal ones" they're made out of aluminium

"The properties of aluminium include: low density and therefore low weight, high strength, superior malleability, easy machining, excellent corrosion resistance and good thermal and electrical conductivity are amongst aluminium's most important properties. Aluminium is also very easy to recycle."

Endgame, shadey12, Honda. I don't think this conversation will get anywhere useful. I preferred my wood ladder over the metal one installed, that's all. Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Have a great weekend. I'll just leave it here.

Absolutely no problem with that, but when you say that aluminium is "horrible and heavy" and that insulated wooden ladders (that you even accepted are double the price) "help prevent heat loss through the loft hatch" then sorry yes, I'll jump in and call you out on it. Have a great weekend yourself

Wood ones are a million times better.
They have deep treads making it easier to get stuff up there and during winter these metal ones get freezing cold.

Preference is fine, ridiculous comments not so much.
The fact that 3 people have told you so means you would be better leaving it there.

The only thing to check with this type of ladder is that you have enough room to install it up in your loft as they are quite long sections. If you don’t have the space try a concertina ladder as they sit fully above the hatch (more expensive and surprisingly sturdier)

Wood is a natural insulator.
metal is a conductor therefore far more colder to the touch.

Agreed, maybe we should build loft ladders out of merino wool?

I'd not worry too much about that post from samiemiah, probably thinks this is a music deal.

Are these easy to fit

Yes can all those that have piped up with bickering comments actually tell us something useful, please, as you obviously (haha) know a great deal about loft ladders. Thanks.

Thanks, just ordered one for my garage loft.

Comedy comments.. its a loft ladder, that er, lives in the loft. Heat for both lols and deal

Were you not persuaded by the argument above to have a wooden ladder then?

We have some right cha vs here!

I'll jump in and call you out.... hahahaha. Now that is someone who takes loft ladders very serious!!! Get a hobby!

If only Kingspan made ladders...

I have got both metal and wooden loft ladders. I much prefer the wooden ones because they are a lot softer on your feet as the metal ones dig in a bit. Although of course you could just wear shoes

Exactly what I was thinking lol

What do people be doing to need such comfort when climbing a ladder to put a box in the roof?

Yeah we heard you the first time but nobody took any notice then either

Ordered after massive time waste by people wasting their Saturday with childish comments
Excellent thanks OP . Just moved to a new build. You saved me 50 quid over b&q one intended to buy genuine thanks !

I'm not convinced that this is such a good deal. The RRP is comparable to the B&Q ladder that has the lift assistance (basically adds £20 to the price of a none assist ladder). From the description, this just looks like a normal ladder.

B&Q lift assist ladder

I just fitted on of these and to be honest the extra £20 for the lift assist made sense just because of the actual height of my loft.

One thing i should point out, these three part ladders are not a stable as the two part versions, so if your loft isn't that high, I would suggest getting the two part versions.

Thanks OP, ordered two (got two loft hatches).
