I see the required opening is 18 x 24, but it does't show which side is the longer side?

From the picture, it looks like the side on which the ladder rests is the shorter side but I can't be sure.

Answer: 
The dropped door shows the long side -- the ladder needs the 24" to drop down, so 18" wide, 24" length running towards you. Darn.

Answer: 
24 would be the longer side. you need at least that much clearance to be able to lower the ladder and then climb up it. You'll probably still be a tight fit. I increase the size of my opening to 30" by 30" and its still a tight fit if I try to carry something. The opening can be any size you want, that required opening size is the minimum.

18 is the width and 24 is the length but be sure you place it so the ladder can spring put and reach the floor and still be bolted inside the attic.

Answer: 
The access hole should be at least 18" wide and 24" long. If you have the space, a longer hole is nice because it's easier for you to climb up without hitting hour head.
In the photo, the ladder is attached to the shorter side of the access hole.

Answer: 
I installed the ladder on the same side as I hinged the new door. This was the narrower side which I believe allows more room when putting ( or removing) items into storage.

No it does not come with the frame, it comes with the ladder, pole to pull it down with and the installation hardware. You have to frame the opening and make the door to cover the opening.

Answer: 
It comes with the ladder, the pole and the brackets for the ladder. The frame and trim must be purchased separately. I used the recommended lumber to make the trim (1x3 and 1x2's I believe). If your attic doesn't have 3/4 flooring or subflooring to anchor the brackets down to, you will need a piece of plywood for that as well. The kit's instructions were pretty good regarding that.

The AA1510 does not come framed. You will get the ladder, pole, and door hardware, and handrail. This ladder does not come with a door. You will need to make your door to fit the rough opening.

At 230 lbs, I'm not the lightest fellow in the world. This unit would work for me, but it would limit what I could carry up. Does Werner sell a similar ladder (telescoping, non-scissor design) with a higher weight rating?

you could make it work, just dont expect the instruction manual to help you. you would either need to shorten the ladder by cutting off some of the bottom, or by drilling some new holes near the top for the metal stops. the reason 7' is the minimum is because you need at least that much height to engage all the safety latches.

Answer: 
The only thing that may be a problem with shorter ceilings is the locking mechanism on the ladder may not fully lock. If you need the lock and it won't align, you could drill another hole to let the latch lock in place.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fair Value and it works I had a small place to put the attic ladder and this was the only one that would fit. It had to be small and had to be light weight. It is that. Considering that I hope I don't go into the attic often, this product should last for a long time. It is not heavy duty but just right for my application. I am satisfied with the product and would recommend it for a tight access hatch into the attic. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good size Good product, but installation was somewhat difficult and time consuming. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what we needed This Werner Compact Attic Ladder is great when you have limited access space to your attic. The ladder is narrow and light but still feels solid when I'm standing on it. I'm challenging the 250 max... I like the handrail but am thinking about removing it as it does block some of my access opening. I might also remove the upper stop tabs so the ladder top sits more flush with the attic floor. Will decide on these adjustments after I bring up a couple boxes and tubs. Make sure to use 3/4 plywood around the attic floor opening where you will attach the ladder. You will appreciate the extra support it give. Overall, it is pretty simple to assemble and install. As other reviews noted, it was a bit challenging to distinguished between the various sized nuts, bolts and screws without having a metric ruler. That is the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars... February 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my smaller than standard attic opening! Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Installation was pretty straight forward. Works perfect for my 24" x 28" attic opening. Pulls down and stows easily and operates smoothly. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy for loft access I bought this ladder to access the loft of my new garden shed. It's great. Needed a few pieces removed since it wasn't going to be used for attic access but so much cheaper than buying a dock ladder or building steps. June 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good enough I wasn't impressed with this ladder. It has several flaws but overall it was workable. Luckily for me I'm mechanically inclined with a enough common sense and time on my hands to work around the rough spots...of which there are many. Reinforcement is a good point. Lock washers are required. Hinge and Slides should be weight bearing. My suggestion would be to purchase this product with the understanding you will need to reinforce its' construction accordingly. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by been waiting for a little attic ladder like this for a long time instructions are very informative although still takes some skills to put in correctly. all in all very good little attic ladder. works great and fits in a tight space. because it is very light weight and small it can't hold a lot of weight but you really shouldn't be putting that heavy of items in the attic anyway. October 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Given returned merchandise Obviously given a returned item. Ladder not packaged and missing parts. Returned ladder. May 4, 2016
