Install a loft hatch ladder

In many houses, getting up into the loft can be a real contortion act.
My customer wanted to get into his loft, without taking his life in his hands.
He knew what he wanted...
A solidly built wooden loft ladder - 
not one of those wobbly aluminium contraptions...
He also wanted easy access... 
He was tired of trying to get a 2' box (and himself) through a 2' hole.
I suggested a very neat solution.
The Fakro Loft Ladder
It's a folding ladder made of quality pine, 
it's supplied with an insulated hatch door, and a handrail. 

There's loads of wide tread space which makes stepping onto the treads easier. Safety grooves are cut into the treads to prevent slipping. They are relatively easy to fit, and feel really safe to use. All things considered, it would be my personal choice every time. Below is a video of the loft ladder in use.
