i have a loose hatch that just lifts out. Will this be compatable with your ladder .I cant see how to reach up for the ladder to open it thanks

1 Answer

If you mean that you normally open the hatch by climbing upto the hatch and then pushing it into the loft space (the normal situation), then yes, this loft ladder is compatible.

You will need to remove the small wooden battens on which your hatch currently sits and then refit the hatch so that it can now swing downwards, using the supplied hinges. Instructions are provided on how to do this.

You have to drill a 13mm hole in the hatch to take the plastic locking mechanism.

Your hatch will now be converted to open "downwards".

Supplied is a 70cm? pole, which is used to both unlock (by twisting) the hatch's new locking mechanism and to draw the ladder out and down.

You can modify the hatch opening in about 30 minutes using standard tools, and you can do it separately from actually installing the ladder.

Free standing leaning ladder - why can it not be used in this way

I have a 2 tier garage (the upper tier being used for storage) and would like to use the ladder for access to that upper area - do you advise that the ladder is not suitable for that purpose? Also, as a loft ladder, is it not being used as a 'free standing ladder'? You talk about it being 'attached' to the floor of the loft - it is not apparent how this is achieved, but is this the feature that categorizes it as not being 'free standing'?

1 Answer

Hi, thank you for your question.

The Abru 2 Section Loft Ladder needs to be fixed to the opening of the loft. If it is not fixed then it would be free standing, which is not recommended for this ladder. The installation instructions are located within the product images at the top of this page, it may be helpful to you to read through this to gain a better understanding of how the ladder is to be fixed to the opening of the loft.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Can this ladder be used like an ordinary extendable ladder ? Outside for instance.

Hi, thank you for your question.

The Abru 2 Section Loft Ladder should not be used as a freestanding leaning ladder.
