Loft Ladders - Loft Conversions in Kingswinford

There are many types of loft ladders from which you can choose. The choice you make will be influenced by the purpose of your loft conversion. For example, a loft conversion, used only for storage purposes and infrequently accessed, does not necessarily require a top-quality loft ladder or a fixed staircase. On the other hand, a loft conversion designed as a child's bedroom is well suited to a high quality loft ladder or fixed staircase.










For those who plan to use their loft conversions frequently, fitted or pull-down loft ladders may fit the bill. An extension ladder may work well in some cases, while a flight of fixed stairs may be the best choice in others. Pull-down loft ladders come in several different forms. Pull-down ladders are made of metal or wood. They make it easy to keep landings clear and take up no floor space.

There are two basic types of pull-down loft ladders. The first type is the concertinal folding loft ladder and the other is the sliding loft ladder style. For easy lowering and stowing, choose a loft ladder with spring assistance.,/

Loft ladders with handrails can be a good choice. The handrails make for safer ascending and descending, as users can hold on easier and feel more secure. If you plan to use your loft conversion to store heavy items, a heavy-duty ladder is likely to be more suitable than a lightweight ladder.

If you prefer a compact ladder, an aluminium version may be a good choice for you. On the other hand, if you are hoping for a quiet ladder, a wooden version may be a better selection. Wooden loft ladders tend to feel sturdier and more comfortable.

After comparing the pros and cons of each type of loft ladder, you may find that you do not want a loft ladder at all. In such a case, you may prefer a staircase. Instead of going to the trouble of adding in a full flight of stairs, you could choose to add an alternative tread staircase. An alternating tread staircase is a bit steeper than a traditional staircase. It's slightly narrower as well. Typically, this type of staircase is considered a good choice when physical space is limited. With an alternating tread staircase, handrails are required to ensure safety.

Keep in mind that choosing loft ladders is directly related to the type of loft conversion you are planning. You cannot choose the optimal ladder without first figuring out how often it will be used and by whom. Remember to always place safety first.
