Loft Ladders

Welcome to Loft E Ladder, referred to in so many ways by many different people as attic ladder, loft ladder, trapdoor ladder, folding ladder, loft stairs, ceiling ladder, roof ladder, extending stairs, sliding stairs, extension staircase but we are unconcerned about the terms of reference so long as you find us. Loft E Ladder is superior to anything else available in South Africa, it is proudly South African and First for Safety, Adjustability, Durability and Lifetime usage.

Safety because it is made from extruded certified Aluminium with 75mm finely ribbed non slip treads and handrail, has a 150kg rating and projects into the roof space for stability when stepping off the top tread onto the flooring.

Adjustability, with two sizes available they adjust from to suit ceiling heights from 2,2 metres up to 3,5metres.

Durability, because unlike its wooden counterpart it does not expand and contract with extreme climatic changes causing instability.

Life Time Use, because the design allows for Loft E Ladder to be removed and reinstalled if you move home.

Counter Balanced, Spring Controlled, a light pull down to access and a light upward pressure to stow away. (Loft E Ladder can be accessed or stowed away in less than 15 seconds.)

Enclosures (Trapdoors) are made to measure to suit differing dimensions of roof trusses.

Fittings are Epoxy coated, Gliders are Nylon and all nuts and bolts are galvanised. Loft E Ladder is 100% made in South Africa, has a 150kg rating and suitable for Light Industrial use as well as Commercial and Domestic.

Although we live in the Space Age, most people are experiencing a SHORTAGE OF SPACE, especially storage space. Before moving to a larger home consider creating more space by using the loft. Where better to store suitcases, camping gear, boxes that the Hi-Fi – Television (TV) Digital Video Disc (DVD) Player, Computer etc came in, boxes of books and various items being kept for the Grandchildren etc, the list is endless and when you clear the garage you can get the car back in there!! It is worth knowing that by laying flooring in the Loft you are also providing moderate insulation but we often insulate before flooring which creates double insulation and lower electricity costs.

Your Loft is a large empty expensive area of space in your home that you have already paid for but never use, why not make it cost effective and use it for storage as well as having access to the Stop Cock and your Geyzer.

Building costs have risen so much that Architects and Designers neglect attention to storage space. What with records having to be kept for a minimum of 5 years the situation has been exacerbated with the introduction of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) requiring goods sold that need to be returned by the buyer must be in the original packaging and box for the validity of warranties or guarantees to apply.

Loft E Ladder is favoured by Architects, Designers, High Profile Developers, Project Managers and Professionals because it is in a class of its own for Value, Quality, Safety, Durability, Adjustability and Longevity. We supply and install together with the laying of flooring but with our explicit instructions, diagrams, visuals and DVD the Do It Yourself ( D I Y ) enthusiasts can be assured of their successes. We send everything, via couriers, Enclosures in Flat Pack Form for easy reassembly, Brackets, Gliders, Fittings etc, to anywhere in the country and across the borders.

Loft E Ladder saves you the aggravation of bringing a ladder from the garage, damaging furniture, doors and frames etc in the process. Gives you easy access to storage, the Hot Water Geyzer or Air Conditioning Unit, Alarm system etc..

Mezzanine Floors are designed with precision using Laminated Beams, joists, Tongued and Grooved (T & G ) flooring or 18mm plywood accessed by conventional Staircase with balustrading, straight stairs, double flights with a quarter or half landing. Where space is a problem we build alternating treads. In most cases they are made from selected Pine or Meranti, but we also make from Oak, Cherry, Beech Mahogany etc.

If required, working through Structural Engineers, we can build you a Loft Room with insulated floors, Driwalls, Insulated Walls, Dormer windows, Valiant Skylights, Rooflights , TSW Skylights or conventional windows.

Before ordering a folding ladder from Lofts & Ladders, Creative Spaces or Roof Store, we urge you to give us a call and let Loft E Ladder Cape CC provide you with a quotation for the one and only renowned Loft E Ladder. Our team of specialists will install together with flooring within a day, Minimal Mess, Minimal Stress & Maximum Space.

We have an excellent DVD visual on YouTube and our Facebook page- click here to view how to operate our aluminium ladder. We assure you of satisfaction, We have a first class reputation for service and reliability. Call us for a professional consultation.
