It’s that time of year again: the days are getting shorter, and the temperature is dropping. That means it’s time to start thinking about how you can prepare your home for winter and lower your heating bills. Every homeowner knows they need to insulate their loft, but it can be difficult and expensive to do this properly. And this has never been a better time to insulate your home with energy prices at the highest recorded levels.
Not only is it important to insulate your loft, but it’s also essential to insulate the loft hatch, through which warm heat will escape and heat your loft, or cold air will blow in and cool your warm home. Either way, fixing your loft hatch into the attic is essential, especially in a thermally efficient and stylish way.
All the TB Davies loft ladders are well-insulated. All have a continuous bead around the lip of the hatch, creating an air-tight lock. But the LuxFold loft ladder trumps the rest of the line-up. With a tested U-value of 0.59 W / m²K, it has one of the lowest U-Values on the market.
LuxFold is designed with thermal efficiency and features an extra-thick 87mm trapdoor for optimal insulation, but it also has a continuous seal that prevents cold air from escaping.
The continuous seal is found across our range of Loft Ladders. Not all our competitors* offer this, and air will blow through gaps in their products, but not so with a TB Davies loft ladder.
Lastly, the integrated double-lock system ensures secure closing and prevents unauthorised access.

*When comparing competitor loft ladders, note that ours are tested values, not calculated, and the continuous seal is continuous, not just along each edge.
