How to choose a loft ladder

Choosing the right loft ladder may leave you stuck for direction unless you know what you’re looking for. So here’s some advice about getting the various types of ladder installed on your hatch, ensuring you choose the right ladder for your storage room or loft conversion that will stand the test of time too! All our loft flooring comes with a lifetime guarantee and manufacturers guarantees with all our loft ladders and hatches, but changes to the household and the people in it still occur, so bare the future in mind when assessing your options.
Fold & Slide Ladders

Often with two or three or 4 sections, and spring assisted mechanisms to ensure they stay in the required extended or closed position. Once the hatch is opened, your sliding or folding ladder can be lowered using the pole that we supply – ensuring an easy method to open and close the hatch without the ladder falling into its own weight and getting damaged. You may want to note that while fold and slide ladders are a great option for accessing your loft, they may come with some space considerations, but you will know this depending on what space is available in your loft that surrounds the hatch. Popular folding / sliding loft ladders we install are manufactured by legacy brands such as Youngman, Fakro, Abru, Stira and Titan.

Concertina Ladders

Concertina loft ladders require less vertical and horizontal clearance in your loft. Therefore making them more ideal for smaller homes, and lofts where the ceiling height is limited. That’s not to say you may prefer the overall design enough to get a concertina loft ladder installed.

Like with our fold / slide ladders, concertina loft ladders are extendable with using a special pole (also often provided). Allowing the user to return the ladder up into the loft hatch when they’re finished with it. Our main supplier of Concertina / Scissor Ladders are Midlands-based loft experts Fakro.

Telescopic Ladders

Telescopic ladders can be seen as the new kid on the block, because the collapsable mechanism has only recently been introduced on the ladder scene, and is becoming a popular for loft hatch access. These ladders have almost no intrusion space, so you don’t even need to consider area that surrounds the inside of the hatch. The Loftman Company is proud to supply Telescopic ladders produced by the reknowned Youngman.
