Vertical Wall Access Ladder makes use of wasted loft space

Vertical Wall Access Ladder makes use of wasted loft space

The owners of a modern home had no means of access to the loft space in their property. They approached Swindon-based ‘Artisan Loft Ladders’ to install a ladder and board the loft, so that they could make use of this otherwise wasted space. The Supreme Vertical wall access ladder offered the perfect solution.

The Challenge

Premier Loft Ladders were contacted by Artisan Loft Ladders, who needed a high-quality, durable loft ladder for one of their clients. The customer had purchased a recently built house with no loft access – the original opening having been boarded over. As such, they wanted to open up the loft space and board the area to make use of the wasted space. What made the project more challenging was the fact the loft hatch was positioned on a vertical wall, as opposed to a regular horizontal ceiling position. Furthermore, the hatch was 3m from the floor.

The Solution

Artisan Loft Ladders realised that they needed a specialist ladder to meet their client’s brief, so contacted Premier Loft Ladders for assistance. The Supreme Vertical was quickly identified as the perfect loft ladder for the project. This high-performance vertical loft ladder is suitable for ceiling heights up to 3.39m, so could comfortably achieve the 3m height that was required. Furthermore, the hatch box is made-to-measure, so the unusual aperture measurements were no problem at all.

“The quality and versatility of the product reflects in the price and is worth the extra cost for peace of mind that my reputation will be upheld with excellent customer satisfaction and reviews.” - Steve, Artisan Loft Ladders

The Supreme Vertical features a heavy-duty concertina ladder. However, it is carefully-counterbalanced to ensure that it can be opened and closed with a minimum of effort. In addition, the aluminium components ensure that that the loft ladder is durable and will last for many years of regular use with minimum maintenance.

The Results

Artisan loft ladders erected a small tower to prepare the aperture, lift-up the Supreme Vertical and then secure it into place. As the hatch box is made-to-measure, it fit within the structural timbers of the wall. The installation gap is then filled with an insulating material and the trim is clipped to the hatch box frame.

The customer was delighted with their new loft ladder and amazed at how easy it was to use.
