Easiway Loft Ladder Installation

Location – Surrey, UK

Hello from Surrey.  This week we are installing an Easiway loft ladder.  The Easiway is a basic 3 tier sliding aluminium loft ladder with a handrail and a guide bar for ease of use.  This ladder is ideal for basic storage access to the loft.

We get straight to work…

Here is the current hatch.  We removed the push up “lid” that the customer had and are going to fit a new hinge down door.


We then un pack the Easiway ladder, ready for installation into the loft hatch.

We then erect the Easiway and size it up to the ceiling height.

We then fit the handrail to the left hand side (customers request).  We can fit the handrail to any side you wish.


We then get the ladder ready for fixing to the hatch frame.


We then fix the ladder to the hatch frame.


Mr Fitter then tests the ladder out to check it works exactly as it should.

Ladder in good working order, we head out to the van in the sunshine and cut the hatch door to size…

Once all cut down, we head back inside and size the hatch door up against the hatch to check that it is all cut correctly.


All ok, we then fix the hatch door into place.
