The Elite loft ladder was chosen for a Hammersmith apartment to provide safe and convenient access to the flat roof.
Private outdoor space in London is limited, so making the most of the flat roof to provide a small garden retreat was a great idea. There was already a large rooflight installed above the staircase, which flood the stairwell and landing with lots of natural light. The rooflight also slid open to allow access to the roof. However, the only way to access it was positioning a ladder beneath it. This proved quite dangerous. In addition, there was the issue of where to put the ladder when it was not being used.
The Elite is a compact, space-saving loft ladder. Furthermore, the Elite features deep treads (350mm wide by 140mm deep) offering a safe and comfortable footing for anyone using the ladder.
Because of the prominent position of the Elite above the stairway, and the decor of the room, a powder coat finish was requested. A ‘grey-white’ (RAL 9002) colour was chosen, which provided a near perfect match to the wall colour. This durable powder coat finish was applied to the metal structure of the loft ladder. Also, it was applied to the extra tread that was fitted to the wall above the Elite, which made access through the rooflight much easier.
The Elite loft ladder provides safe and convenient access to the rooflight. The compact concertina ladder means that the Elite can fit snugly into the space beneath the skylight when not in use. When access to the flat roof is needed, the Elite gently extends to the floor (requiring less than 3 kg operating load to open and close). The large treads then allow the occupant to easily climb the ladder and pass through the rooflight.
