My ceiling height is 10'. But the ladder obviously needs to be longer since it does not drop straight down to the floor. Is this the right size ladder for my application?

Answer: 
If you have the Elite or Elite II ladder and your ceiling height is in fact 10' tall then you have exactly what you need. When measuring for attic ladders you measure from floor to ceiling straight up and down.

My ceiling height is 7'-7", can I set the unit 2" higher up in the opening?

My ceiling height is 7'-7". Can I install the ladder unit 2" higher up in the rough opening then add 2" of rigid insulation & a 1/8" luan cover to make it flush with the ceiling? This will increase the R value, but will the closers be able to handle the additional weight and pull the door shut tight?

Answer: 
You can raise the ladder up 2 inches so it hits the floor at 7'-9" but with this ladder if you add anything extra to the door as far as weight goes the cylinders will not pull the door up or keep up. Really you need a wood door that is designed for your 7'-7" ceiling height.

Answer: 
No, please do not do this. By adding extra weight to the door and the cylinder, it will not be able to pull the door up and hold it up.

Answer: 
It will but you would have to remove the bottom rung and add the legs that come with it. Depending on your mechanical skills it may be easier to find one for 8ft and cut it down.

Answer: 
The AA259GS will not work for that ceiling height. The only ladder we have close to that is the CS254I ladder, it is insulated and same dimensions, but it has a 300 lbs load capacity.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 98 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louisville Elite Aluminum Attic Ladder--a better attic ladder The Louisville Elite aluminum attic ladder is a better attic ladder than the old, springs-and-wood version. The installation guide could be better, but what guide is NOT in need of improvement? We have used this ladder to scamper up and down into our attic for a couple of weeks now, and I recommend it as an improvement to anyone with an old attic ladder with bent supports. I also recommend placing the temporary anchors on the inside of the frame instead of the outside if you want to easilty remove them afterwards (hence "temporary"). September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service I had a contractor install the stairs. All the parts were included and it is a quality product. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aluminum is the way to go...... This attic ladder replaced a wood attic ladder that had gotten really cranky. The springs wouldn't stay on it anymore and it was really heavy. This aluminum ladder weighed half of what that wood attic ladder. That made it easy to mount by myself. There are no springs on this new ladder. I like it. August 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not very happy Stupidly I put the stairs in place before I gave them a close inspection. On of the main supports was bent a bit causing some splintering in the door around the bolt holes. On the other side by the pull cord a 7 inch long splinter must have come out during assembly because they had coated the area with wood filler which was falling out. When totally installed the whole hinge and support area still has some flex. Not very happy June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product at a great price We purchased this ladder to replace an existing ladder. The old unit used springs for the open / close assist and part of the mechanism had failed. The Louisville Ladder Elite was very well constructed and the use of pneumatic cylinders instead of springs is a tremendous improvement. The installation was not difficult although a third person was a great help (the instructions call for two people). The only complaint (minor) is that the nuts for the 4 1/4" bolts used to attach the adjustable ladder feet were missing. Fortunately, we had some in our "spare parts" box and a trip to the store was avoided. January 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product The installation instructions should be changed. Using the four straps to temporarily hold the stairs in place is not a good idea. It is better to use two 1x4 boards to hold the stairs in place so they align flush with the ceiling. The insulation panels need to be glued in place, otherwise they slide and interfere when closing the stairs. Otherwise, very pleased with the stairs. November 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install, good quality for the price, operates well. This attic ladder was a good buy. It took a couple of hours to install. It is functional and the price was right. Easy to pull down when you want to access your attic. November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product...After looking at many other ladders, glad I chose this one....easy to install...works great. The instructions were good. Took about 2 1/2 hours to completely install. Worked great on the first try. One suggestion....add two more braces from step to frame at middle or bottom, to firm up stairs from wiggle. I put two more little braces and the steps are now solid as a rock....no wiggle. December 29, 2015
