We fit either a two or three section aluminium easy store loft ladder with safety hand rail as standard. To determine which ladder would best suit you depends on your ceiling height, loft size opening and clearance space available inside your loft. We can discuss this on our free site survey. All our ladders are rated to 150kg (24st), which is the highest in the industry. These are made in the UK by Werman. We have been using these ladders for over 8 years because of the high standards of quality and highest weight load rating in the market.
Easily the best fold out wooden ladder available today. They are a quality, perfectly balanced ladder and very easy to operate. These need the minimum amount of effort to open or close and once fitted look great in any home. These need the minimum amount of clearance in the loft due to the nature of the folding scissor ladder that sits on the actual hatch, so they are a must for customers with poor access and low roof height.
Made from slow grow Scandinavian pine, grown and made in Norway. We only fit the brand leader Fakro loft ladder, which are rated to 160kg. Because it’s a trade item, I can order them in a choice of 14 sizes for small to medium or extra-large loft access. Every ladder comes with a safety handrail with further options for fire rated, scissor and extra heavy duty applications.
Firstly you will need your hatch to open downwards. For your convenience your new hatch wants to open easily without the need to get the step ladder out. We supply the ‘pole’ to access your loft and/or loft ladder to get into your loft with minimal fuss.
There are a few options here, we can re-size it in its current location or relocate the opening to a new preferred location. We can then fit a new draught proofed Upvc insulated hatch with seal and multipoint lock, or build a new bespoke timber hatch if the opening requires it or you’d prefer it. Metal security hatches and fire rated hatches are also available. Whatever you need for your home, just give me a call and I can go through the options with you.
There is only one industry approved type of loft board. It’s a 2400mmx600mm (8’ x 2’) pressure treated tongue and grooved P5 loft board in either 18mm or 22mm variants. We only use these boards. Due to their size, it might seem impossible to fit them in to such a tight space, but this is where our experience in working in lofts really shows. In nearly all cases, first we look to install a braced perpendicular sub floor to your existing ceiling joists. This serves to both strengthen your existing ceiling joists and raise the floor level above your insulation. This is vital as forcing the insulation up against your ceiling not only reduces the efficiency but can cause problems with the ceilings underneath. This stud sub floor ensures the home wiring and plumbing work can be covered in most cases and constructional support timbers stay in place, giving you an unbroken, level, incredibly strong floor for home storage.
When more space is needed in the home and building an extension is too costly, Loft Solutions can come and create a well-insulated loft space with fold out wooden steps or staircases, Velux windows, fitted 13 amp electrics and lights with a plastered finish. Added to that we can then create bespoke cupboards in your eves for even more storage. Please call for more information as prices start from only £3000.
Fresh air and natural light are a welcome benefit to any loft, fitted in less than a day we can transform the feel of any loft with the installation of a Velux window. They come in many shapes and sizes, Velux have recently improved the design to make them even easier to use. We only fit the latest generation of Velux windows.
We offer a range of lighting and electric sockets to suit all budgets and locations. All electrical work is carried out by fully qualified electricians.
