Pull Down Attic Ladders

One of the simplest ways to pick up some storage space that you never knew you had is to make use of the attic. In order to get into the attic, as well as get the things you’re going to be storing in there easily, you will have to install an attic ladder. Pull down attic ladders are possibly the simplest and most convenient of the types of attic ladders available.

A pull down attic ladder disappears into the ceiling of the house when it’s not in use, leaving you with what looks like a standard manhole into the ceiling. By pulling down the trapdoor a complete set of stairs forms to make it a simple matter of gaining access to the attic. These stairs can be as simple or as robust as you are prepared to pay for and they can be made in wood, steel or aluminum depending on your preference.

Take a look at the selection of attic ladders displayed below.

To pull the attic ladder down you may either employ a rope or you may use a long handled hook that catches a latch and swings effortlessly down. A more expensive, but more impressive, variation is an electronic pull down attic ladder that operates at the press of a button.

When you buy your pull down attic ladder you will have to decide on the weight capacity that you need. You may notice when you browse through the various options available to you that the attic ladders are displayed in different load capacities. Naturally the more use your ladder is going to get the more robust it is going to have to be. If you are planning on carrying heavy objects up into the attic you will have to be mindful of the load capacity of the attic ladder you buy.

A good pull down attic ladder will operate quietly when it is lowered into place. The steps should be ridged to ensure the footing, the ladder itself should be relatively light and the ladder itself should be big enough to allow you to climb without fear of falling.

There are some fine attic ladder companies in the market today and each of them carries a strong range of products. Werner is an extremely reliable company, just to give you an example of one of the big names in the industry. They will all give you a choice of the kinds of materials the ladders are made in, choosing size and load capacity will be up to you and, possibly, your attic.
