Aluminium Attic Ladders

As with timber attic ladders, there are a number of factors you need to take into account when you are making your decision on what type of ladder you are going to install.  When looking at aluminium ladders, consider their load rating and the quality of the finish.  Make sure you are buying something that will be safe, secure (a strong latch) and has a reputation for quality so that you are able to get parts and service if required in the future.

One of the biggest differences that you will see between models of high quality such as those below and some of the other ladders available in the market is the quality of the hatch door. These should be insulated to minimise the potential for heat transfer between the roof space and the inside of the home and should have an effective seal to prevent dust entering your home while the hatch is closed.  Have a good look at how the hatch door will look from the inside of your home.  A well finished hatch door will look sleek and modern.
