Location – Benfleet, Essex
This week we are in sunny Essex. We are fitting the brilliant piston assisted loft ladder. This wooden loft ladder has a unique piston arm which allows for smooth operation. It comes with a double extended handrail for added safety and extra strong springs to close the hatch door.
Our job here was to remove an old loft ladder and replace it with this wooden loft ladder. We get to work…
Here is the current loft hatch.
We open up the hatch to checkout the current loft ladder.
We set out removing the current loft ladder from the hatch.
After the loft ladder is removed, we than have to remove the hatch frame.
We also remove the hatch door from the current frame.
We than remove the old frame and make sure the opening is ready for the new wooden loft ladder.
Once the opening is ready, we then get the new wooden loft ladder out of the van.
It is now time to put the new wooden loft ladder into place. Lift!!!
Phew! that was heavy! We now have to secure the wooden loft ladder into place
Now that the loft ladder is secured into place, we have to cut the ladder section down to size…
We close up the ladder and have one final check that the hatch and frame is all level.
It is now nicely secured into place. Let’s make is look nice with architrave…
We now test the new loft ladder…
