Easiway Loft Ladder Installation

Location – Shooters Hill, London

Hello from South East London  This week we are installing another Easiway loft ladder.  Ideal loft ladders for  basic access to your loft space.

This job was fairly straightforward as our customer already had an old aluminium loft ladder in place and a hinge down hatch door.

Our job was to safely remove the old loft ladder and replace it with a new Easiway loft ladder.  The hatch door that was already present did not need changing, we therefore kept the door in place and applied a new twist catch.

We get to work but firstly removing the old loft ladder.


We then get the new Easiway loft ladder ready for installation


After the Easiway is unpacked, we then fix it into place


We then open the Easiway loft ladder and test it is working well…


After our testing has been completed, we then make any final adjustments necessary.


The last job left is to create a new twist catch on the existing loft hatch door.


If you would like a loft ladder installed, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 8551 5800, we would be happy to help you.

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.

Location – Woodford, Essex

Today we are fitting the Easiway loft ladder, this product is an ideal solution for simple basic storage use/occasional use.

For this particular loft ladder, there is no need for any cutting in the ceiling, it’s a case of installing the loft ladder into your current hatch opening/hole.  Your home like most others probably has a hatch you push and to the side, for this loft ladder, we would hinge down the hatch and put a twist catch on it.

Lets get to work…


This is probably a similar situation to what you have at home, a hatch door that you push up and put to the side.


We remove the hatch door and set it to the side because we can use it.

Now we prepare the Easiway loft ladder for installation

Quick check of the time there Mr Fitter? yes we are on time (well of course)


While we were preparing the loft ladder, something appeared at the top of the stairs!



Ok let’s continue preparing the loft ladder…


Now time to fix the ladder into place


Apply the handrail to the loft ladder


Ok ladder installed.  It is time to hinge down the loft hatch door.


Fantastic! lets see the loft ladder in action…


Door now hinged downwards.
