Are you tired of dragging a step or extension ladder into your house, scraping the paint off your walls, only to unsafely climb your way up into your attic? Then we have a solution, our Thermo folding attic stairs is the traditional retractable, three part, timber folding attic ladder which is constructed from red deal pine. It is safe, strong, sturdy and built to last!
The trapdoor is 26 millimetres thick and is fully insulated and draft sealed for minimal heat loss and no draft. The trapdoor is constructed using a “sandwich” method, where polystyrene insulation is filled in or “sandwiched” between two outer layers. Red deal pine provides the structural frame of the door, there is a rebated slot taken out of the edge of the pine frame where a rubber seal sits to provide the airtightness and draft prevention. The ladder is assembled using dovetail joints. A metal d-handrail is attached to the top third of the ladder section, providing something to hold onto while climbing up and down the ladder. There are protective rubber feet on the bottom of the ladder, providing protection to floor surfaces which are vulnerable to scratches i.e. wooden floors. The hatch door is spring loaded, meaning you do not have to take any weight while opening it and it does not just simply fall down when you open the latch, with the supplied pole.
All of the timber used in the construction of this folding attic stairs is FSC environmentally rated, meaning that the wood has only been taken from responsible sources. We want to be kind to the environment, and we know you do too!
The “Supplied & Fitted” price which is provided below, includes the altering of your opening by our carpenters, to suit the nearest size available (The sizes are listed below). Or indeed creating a new opening in a different area of the roof, if this is required. These works will only be carried out to the highest possible standard, from both structural and from an aesthetics point of view.
We fit this folding attic stairs for around 7 out of 10 of our customers. We truly believe this is the best “Standard Model” attic stairs on the market.
