Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Impressive Quality
I have had wooden attic ladders before and was not happy with how they would become wobbly over time. So I decided to go with steel on this one. I was very impressed with how sturdy it is. I also liked how the door is sealed around the perimeter to prevent air infiltration/heat loss.
The most difficult part was the prep of the opening but the instructions were very helpful. We deviated from the instructions and used "third hands" (expanding poles for crown molding installation) to hold the latter in place. My wife and I had no trouble lifting the unit into place in our 9' ceiling. The lenght of the ladder was perfect for our 9' ceiling so we did not have to make any cuts on the ladder. We also constructed a cover to go in the attic out of 2" foam board we bought at HD.

Well built ladder that is very solid. Door is thick and is not flimsy at all. The metal ladder is not going to break under heavy load. The opening is large and will allow items to fit that won't fit with smaller ladders.
I deducted a star for quality because mine had a crack along the one end that I had to repair myself, but it wasn't that big of a deal.
a few things to note when cutting the legs to the proper height. first make sure the ladder is fully pulled as far away from the door as possible (the bolts are loose by default). this creates slightly more room for your feet. then, move the up/down adjuster so the ladder is as far up as possible. this will allow flexibility later in case you have to elongate the ladder later on. you can always cut off more, but you can't add on. also take note how the plastic feet are made. unlike wood ladders, you cut this one straight across because the feet are angled to compensate for that. just make sure to measure everything correctly (measure 2, 3, 4, etc times before cutting).

This ladder was easy to install very sturdy. I'm glad after looking at all brands and model that I selected this one.

This attic ladder is rock solid. No way will you have to worry about it failing if you install if properly and weight less than a ton. Ok less than a ton. I installed it by myself but probably not a good idea if you are not willing to take some significant risks. I like the fact that you can adjust the steps to allow room for a big foot. My only concern is that they are a bit steep. Certainly steeper than the steps I removed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EfromCA A very solid attic ladder
We are very impressed with this ladder; it's extremely solid and unfolds/folds up very nicely. It was also one of the few ladders that fit into our space, that held up to 350 lbs. I figured that my 200 lb husband wouldn't be safe on a 250 lbs ladder if he was carrying anything heavy.
And it was very cost-competitive with other lesser-quality ladders.

I did extensive research on attic ladders before I bought this model. It is well made, installed easily, and looks good. I bought one for the garage and another for the interior hallway. Way better than the Century or Werner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by contractor very good product
This product was used in a barn renovation/restoration to provide access to the barn loft area. The existing opening was only 49" & constructed with rough-sawn beams so it limited what stairs could be used in our situation. The Owner was very happy with the stair system and commented that it is much more stable than the wood attic stair that they installed in their home.
