Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a minimum ceiling height? Mine is 7ft 5 inches.

What other FAKRO attic ladders would work with this ceiling height? RO could be 22.5 x 54 or 25 x 54. Thank you!

My ceilings are 8' tall. Can the ladder be sawed to accommodate the lower ceiling?

Asked by: 4343
Yes; I needed to saw the legs of mine during installation. A standard hack saw does the job quite well. It's worth the effort - this is a great attic ladder.

Do I need to buy an installation kit?

Asked by: npar
The installation kit (LXK) is not necessary but it is helpful to level the ladder before you secure it with screws. See the instruction video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fakro LWM Attic Ladder This Fakro model LWM attic ladder is exactly what I was looking for. After having my arm nearly taken off by the spring on my old attic stairs when a rivet let loose (second set in ten years) I wanted something better. Since everyone in my area (including the local Home Depot) stocked the same junk as I had before, I ordered this model on-line. After living with it for over a year I’ve absolutely no regrets. The hinge design is both sturdier and safer than the others I’ve had and the insulated door locks tight against a rubber gasket to keep your heat from escaping. Overall, the design and construction are far better than the others I’ve seen. Three minor caveats for someone considering this model: 1) The instructions are not the best and the adjustments are a little fiddly. I eventually had to make a few modifications to get the results I was looking for. 2) The three foot long rod that's used to lock/unlock the door has to be stored somewhere handy (offsetting this is there’s no pull-down rope hanging from the ceiling). 3) The painted steel steps are somewhat heavier than the typical aluminum or wood ladder and the treads are a little narrower at 3.2" (others are about 4"). The stairs are fine with me but my 5' 3" wife is afraid she’ll get knocked on the head while trying to unfold the heavy steps. I believe they also make a version with wood stairs but I've no experience with that model. When properly installed, I'm convinced this pull-down ladder will last as long as the house it’s in. I recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stairs, especially for a big guy! Ordered these after reading many reviews of many different manufacturers stairs. Let me start out by saying, I'm a big guy, 6'3, over 400#, so my concern was safety first. None of the stairs had a rating for 400#, most, like these, had 300/350. However I decided to take a gamble. Reading further, I saw that the directions for these, were poor, at best, based on pictures. I will definitely agree with that. Some better directions could help, although with what is included, my father and I got the job done. We had these delivered to my home, none of the issues that I've seen posted here with other delivery woes, so can't speak to that. Packaging was secure and intact, no damage. Came very quickly. Old pull down stairs out, new ones up fairly quick, installed securely. Locking/latching mechanism works nicely. Seals nice, no air draft coming through from above. Adjusting the height for our floor to ceiling height was fairly simple, unbolted the bottom section, took a SawzAll to it, and reattached it, piece of cake. No issues with the stoppers on the bottom falling off as others had mentioned. My father's a decent sized guy, so he went up and down a few times, felt really secure on them, so I decided to give it a try, gotta say, for the amount of times I'm going to be using them, I'll feel safe. For the other times, I'll feel 1000 times safer sending my wife up and down to fetch/store the holiday decorations and kiddo stuff we're saving over the rickety old wooden stairs we pulled out of there =) If you're not sure if these stairs are worth the money, let me assure you, they are. Just take your time and study the directions, I mean, pictures =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade My house is a 1978 vintage, ranch, frame. I have done some serious rennovation and this is one of the last items. The attic access ladder is in the house proper. The old, leaky one was a sore spot forever. This one is insulated and gasketed. Should be a short payback on utility bills. Within a couple of weeks, we knew that the attic dust issue was greatly decreased. I don't know how long this has been on the market, but I found out about it at a friends house and I'm delighted!

The hinges, steel stairs, and latching mechanism really feel sturdy and that they'll last. The wood quality and insulation/weather stripping look great too. I just used a framing square, level, 2 packs of shims and 10 screws to install it following the simple instructions. I then filled the shim-space gaps with insulation and installed the new trim and painted it. The first time I latched it closed with the steel rod I knew it was a very good investment. No more saggy attic door letting the weather in the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is exactly what I wanted I needed to replace a cheap, broken attic ladder and spent considerable time researching a new one. This unit is exactly what I was looking for: A good, solid unit with high weight rating. Installation was quite easy and I'm very pleased with this purchase. I was less interested in total cost than I was the quality, sturdiness and weight rating of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install & very well built The ladder is extremely sturdy and well built. The installation was straight forward and relatively easy. My only complaint was the instructions did not have any words, just pictures. They were easy to follow but not very detailed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recieved broken Recieved the unit and side of frame was destroyed. Cheap thin wood was used in construction with simple staples holding it all together. I was surprised that the other components were un-affected due to the poor construction. I would not recommend.
