Customer Questions & Answers

Is the 47 inch by 22.5 inch number the rough opening size of the inside of the framing?

I am trying to find an attic ladder (I don't need the framing) with a rough opening (on the inside of the framing) that is 44.5 by 24 inches.

The ladder we installed is second order that was delivered in 3 days with extra protection, as the first order was damaged when opened the package and returned to the store. The ladder looks nice and steady. We'll recommend it to anyone who wants this size attic ladder. Our contractor installed it for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not square Everything went well except the frame for the latter was not square. When put into a square opening in the rafters ithe stairs would not fully close. I just took a little extra time to shim the opening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with ladder As many of the other reviews have already stated, this is an excellent product. It's nice to no longer have to haul my aluminum ladder upstairs every time I needed to access the attic. I can't comment on the ease of installation since we had a professional carpenter do the install for us. But the ladder works smoothly and is really convenient. Also, Home Depot delivered the ladder to our door in very short time. Very impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ladder, good seal and insulation This is the second attic ladder I have from HD. The first is a Century SAT-89 aluminum ladder, about $10 cheaper, but with the optional Energy Efficiency Bundle (FTSWB) with fire-retardant door I bought, the Century is about $70 more. Both have their plus and minus features, and you can read my review of the Century ladder here on HD. For the Fakro, the pros are (1) great seal on the door, when it's closed, you can feel and hear it seal. The closet where it is installed is far warmer than with the leaky attic hatch it replaced, so the insulation seems to be working. (2) the ladder rungs are positioned away from the surface of the door panel, so you get a really good footing with the ball of your feet on the rungs (3) this ladder has a shorter opening (47 vs. 54 inches) so it fits in my closet better. (4) it has over an inch of adjustability, so you don't have to cut the length exactly right, you can get close and then adjust it. (5) they sell the plastic feet for the ladder, which is nice if you open the ladder onto carpet or other surface you want to protect, plus it allows you to cut the legs off at a 90-degree angle, instead of trying to match the angle of the floor. The cons are (1) requires a pole to open and close the door. The spring only gets the door up partway, then you have to use the pole to push the door up and turn the locking latch. That makes a good seal and makes the door inconspicuous (no rope or handle), but it's not as convenient as a standard pull-down rope, and you have to store the pole somewhere. (2) the wood stairs don't seem quite as sturdy as the aluminum ones on the Century. It's still a sturdy ladder, I'm kind of nit-picking here. (3) the shortness of the opening (47-inch) means the ladder is a bit steeper and the stairs are slightly more difficult to unfold, since you have to unfold one part then the other, instead of unfolding both at once. I'm sure the longer-opening ladders (54-inch) are better on these issues, but if you have a tight space, it's nice to have the shorter option. As I noted in my other review, if you have room for (or can modify your joists to fit) a 25 or 30-inch wide ladder, buy one. These 22.5-inch ladders fit easily between 24-inch joists, but their narrow-ness makes them more difficult to get things up the stairs. This is a good ladder, buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and, very useful! The insulation contained in the stair has made a significant difference in the up stairs area of my home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hi quality but be aware of the design... This is a very high quality product and it is a breeze to install. However, be aware that the spring mounting is designed so that it will never close the door fully by itself, no matter how much tension you put in the spring. It is because the spring's mounting points at the two ends are at level when the door is closed. You will have to use the included rod and push the door closed and turn the lock to stay that way. I ended up moving the spring mounting higher up (outside the frame) and the door now fully closes but be aware that this is no small task. So if you are looking for a low profile high quality door with manual closing/locking this is the door for you. But if you want single handed quick open/close operation look somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality product. Many attic stairs are shaky/scary to climb. This product is not. The stairs are very sturdy and easy to climb with items in hand. The seal seems to be tight to provide more insulation than many other products I've seen. The installation instructions consisted of pictures only. This made it slightly difficult to follow. Written instructions in conjunction with pictures would have been the best.
