Abru 38002 Abru Loft Ladder Aluminium 2-Section 10-Tread
Good loft ladder
Item well priced and held in stock by my local branch. Abru manufacturing quality is good, and all the parts were included. Instructions were clear and comprehensive, so it was straightforward to assemble. Good safety features are the handrail (not on all loft ladders), a very positive locking catch arrangement when the ladder is extended, and a well made stowing hook. The ladder needs two strips of timber between the rafters in the loft, one to attach the ladder hinges next to the hatch area, and another to take to connect the stowing "V" guide rod. My installation of the ladder was with thick (low "u" and wind proof) Glidevale trapdoor; this was less straightforward as the ladder needs the thicker trapdoor to hinge back further than vertical. So its worth thinking about trapdoor clearance needed as well as where the ladder clearance needed. I think this clearance issue will be common to all thick hinged trapdoors when used with loft ladders.

Easy Loft Ladder
My boiler (in the loft space!) broke down and the servicing company said a temporary ladder would not be safe, so I would need to install a loft ladder. They would come the next day so I needed to be quick.
After reading the reviews on the Screwfix site I choose this one. At pick up I checked on the package what roof space was needed, and that the ladder was suitable for my ceiling height. Everything checked out.
The fitting instructions were clear and spot on. The longest time I spent was altering the roof hatch to fit the opening neatly. The ladder itself was installed quickly without a hitch. It was working perfectly the next day for the service engineer's arrival.
Now all I have to do is resist storing all my rubbish in the loft!
Good value. I could have paid twice as much and not got a better product.
