If you’re looking for a loft ladder that offers a luxury connection between your upstairs flat and attic space, the LuxFold Loft Ladder is a perfect fit.
Bill & Katie were looking to fit a loft ladder that would offer a luxury connection between his recently re-modelled upstairs flat and the attic space, which had always been draughty and of limited use because the opening was so small. They knew what they wanted and what they didn’t want. In a previous house, they’d had a sliding aluminium loft ladder that was noisy and cumbersome to use, and cold air used to pour into the landing and make the upstairs area cold. Here was an opportunity to put in something that would stop the draughts and make it easy to access the attic. The loft ladder had to be easy to install and come with a hatch and have as little assembly as possible. On calling TB Davies for advice, the sales team suggested straight away that a LuxFold loft ladder would be the best fit, as it is the most insulated loft ladder in the range and comes fully assembled.
Introducing the LuxFold Loft Ladder
The LuxFold is a premium loft ladder, offering the lowest u-value of any timber loft ladder on the market. A low u-value is an insulation rating that measures how well a material conducts heat. The lower the u-value, the better the insulation. A material with a u-value of 0.59 W / m²K is considered to have excellent insulation properties. This means that it will prevent heat from escaping, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If you’re looking for a way to improve the insulation in your home, installing a loft ladder is a great option. Not only will it help to keep your home more comfortable, but it will also save you money on your energy bills.
Fitting the loft ladder in a day
In this case, Katie and Bill were thrilled with the result. Bill had roped in a friend to help do the installation, and the two worked on enlarging the opening and cutting the non-load-bearing joists to get a snug fit for the LuxFold. Once the ladder sections were cut to fit his floor-to-ceiling height, they were able to start moving the clutter to a new home.
The LuxFold also offers quicker installation because the loft ladder comes fully assembled. All you need do is to cut the opening in your loft ceiling and fit the ladder. As with all our loft ladder products, please read the instructions before purchasing and fitting the ladder. We have a handy video showing you the various steps to installing a loft ladder. Note that some actions are not needed as the LuxFold comes fully assembled.
