Can this be shortened? My ceiling height is 8' 10", but my current rough opening is 27 x 65. All other products are so much shorter with many of them being 54". Thanks.
Asked by: BizCat
No the Everest ladder can ONLY go as low as 10'-0" ceiling height. You will have to make your opening smaller to the 54" if you want to use a Louisville Ladder brand attic ladder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great's how to install it without killing yourself Ok...I've seen reviews complaining about the difficulty lifting this into the hole. Get a helper. Lift the assembly into the attic. Get 2 pieces of 1x4 approx 32" wide. Have all tools, nails, etc. needed to install in attic. Screw 2 pieces of 1x4 across front and back of opening. Carefully place attic ladder on top of braces. Adjust straps provided and nail them in. Remove screws in 1x4s and continue installation. Also, additional measurements that might be helpful before ordering: Rough opening: 25 1/2 x 63" Landing space (from hinges to where ladder hits ground if extended to full height of 12 ft): 90" Swing clearance (when door is open, distance from bottom hinge of first section parallel to floor needed to open next section of ladder): 92" Landing space will be proportionally less if your ceiling is lower and you have to trim the last section of the ladder. First section of ladder is 57", next 2 are 54" each. Just to clarify..landing space is distance parallel to floor from hinges to where ladder hits floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this ladder. Installation took about 2 hours and does require 2 people. I don't know why other reviews say that it requires two people to unfold the ladder for use, because I always open it by myself and without a step ladder. I had to shorten the ladder to fit my ceiling height and the kit includes anti-slip feet to bolt on after trimming to length which makes for a clean finish! Definitely recommmend. The only negative is the door is made from thin plywood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy installation instructions harder to deploy For the most part I believe everyone that purchases this system will feel secure on it. The steps of the ladder feel comfortable with the exception of the steps that have the door under them. Your toes hit against the insulation panel mounted on the attic side of the door which might take some getting used to. The deployment is hard because of the length of the ladder being 12 feet. A second person is required to avoid damaging the unit when the folding part is pulled down. Gravity and its weight make it come down with force so you have to be ready on the floor while your assistant is on a step ladder unfolding the stowed sections. It works well deploying it according to instructions. A clothesline and a pulley may make this a one person operation. All in all this is a good product that will make throwing a ladder everytime you need in the attic unneccessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Great product! Easy to install, but definitely needs two people (three might be even easier). Very solid workmanship and stable-feeling ladder. Strong springs and tight door fit in its frame. Glad to have a good quality ladder to finally use my attic for more storage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everest 12 foot ladder Excellent Quality, easy to read instructions,a snap to install,steady as a rock to climb, and blends well into the cealing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ladder for the price! Recently purchased this ladder to be used in our garage for overhead storage. Garage ceiling height was 11 feet so we needed something tall and sturdy. This ladder fits the bill and it is lightweight to boot! Installation was not difficult with two people but we used a sheetrock hoist to lift the ladder into place which helped a lot. Ladder is very strudy and the handrails are a nice touch. Unfolding / storing the ladder can be difficult as the other reviews state but it helps that I am 6'4". A step ladder should be used to unfold and refold the ladder which some might argue defeats the purpose, but we don't plan on using this ladder that often which reduces the severity of the issue. Overall a great ladder for the price.
