In 2018, there was a 114% increase for loft conversion applications in the UK. If you were one of those who applied for one, you might've recently finished building your loft!
With this new addition, you'll need a safe way to get up and down. For that reason, you should look into loft ladders. There are many options out there for you, including Screwfix ladders.
Read on to find out a little more about this brand.
Screwfix is not a loft ladder brand and is actually part of Kingfisher PLC. This is a home improvement company that has stores in 10 countries around the world.
Generally, you can expect Screwfix's ladders to be affordable and very straightforward.
Now that you know more about this brand, let's talk about the types of Screwfix ladders that are available. They're pretty basic and will do the job. However, they don't come with safety rails, so we'd suggest using these temporarily before you can get a better, safer, and more aesthetically pleasing loft ladder.
Below are your choices when it comes to Screwfix ladders. All of them come with a 1-year parts warranty.
Screwfix's timber loft ladder comes with 3 sections with a height of 2.77 meters. You'll get non-slip, flat treads with solid wood construction.
It has a maximum static verticle load of 150 kilograms and costs just under £100.
With Screwfix aluminium loft ladders, you'll have the choice of 2 or 3-sectioned ladders. They also come in heights of 2.69 and 3 meters. These ladders come with a maximum static vertical load of 150 kilograms and have anti-slip feet and treads, as well as non-slip rungs.
Prices for these aluminium loft ladders range from £45 to £75.
These also come in either 2 or 3 sections, with heights of 2.67 and 3 meters. As their name suggests, these are lightweight ladders that are easier to move around. The maximum static vertical load for them is 150 kilograms and they're anti-slip products.
Getting one of these ladders will cost between £80 to £90.
The Mac Allister ladders are higher-end products from Screwfix. They cost a bit more at £130 and £150.
If you don't have much space, you should get the 4-section ladder, as it's made specifically for restricted spaces. Your other choice is a 3-section ladder. The ladder heights are 2.76 and 2.78 meters, respectively.
These fold up to be stored within the trap door to save on space.
You have quite a few choices when it comes to Screwfix ladders. However, as we've suggested above, it's better if you only use them temporarily and upgrade to a higher quality loft ladder when possible.
