Customer Questions & Answers

The height from my floor to the attic door is about 8 feet. Will I have to cut this ladder or does it extend and go in on it's own based on height?

I don't want to have to cut anything. Does this ladder modify in height manually vs cutting it? Thanks!
Asked by: Jay
You will need to cut off approximately 2' of the Ladder before installing the Feet [there is a Formula Chart that will assist you in calculating the exact amount]. Very easy process.

The measurement of my attic opening is approx 52 inches length by 24 inches width. The height from the ground is 95 inches. Would this ladder work?

So I measured the opening with the attic door closed, but it was about 95 inches from the ground to the door and 52 inches or so by 24 inches opening. Would this ladder work and if so, would i have to cut the ladder or do anything other than install it properly as is? Thank you!
Asked by: Jay
My attic opening was very nearly the exact size as stated in minimum requirements and it fit fine. I did use shims on both sides and front where cord is located to properly fit and secure in the opening. My ceiling height is exactly 8' (96") and I had to cut off a few stairs.

8 ft. - 10 ft., 22.5 in. x 54 in. Energy Seal Aluminum Attic Ladder Universal Fit with 375 lb. Maximum Load Capacity is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 154.

After making sure everything was square and level the lag bolts were installed, but when closing the door there is a noticeable air gap where one corner of the door meets the seal. We checked everything to make sure nothing shifted while installing the bolts but it all looked good. After a few measurements it turns out to be a manufacturer defect. The door jam seal is about 1/8" higher on one end causing the door to warp resulting in an air gap. This pretty much defeats the purpose of the more expensive "energy seal" door. I would return it but it's installed now, and I am currently thinking of a way to fix the air gap.

Good instructions made do it yourself installation easy to do by 2 senior citizens. The unit is exactly 22 inches wide so I had to use a hydraulic jack to widen the space between my ceiling joists by 1/4 inch. That was the only difficulty. I found that the seal at the non-hinge end did not quite overlap the door when closed so I added a 1/4 spacer behind it and everything works well now. CAUTION: the lag bolts provided assume that you have the standard 22.5 inch hole; if yours is narrower, be careful not to thread the screws into hidden wires on the other side of your joists. The door is made with a nice smooth plywood which was easy to paint. We find this ladder easy and comfortably safe to use.

This was a well constructed ladder and was pretty easy for me to install by myself. Mine fit within my trim work so I didn't have to re-do it. It also has a rubber seal that is supposed to make the seal better for insulation purposes. I live in FL and both Garage and Attic are about 100 degrees, so really doesn't do anything but make the door close quieter. It was the only one in stock so I bought it anyway. Probably $20 more than the next step down? Highly recommend the aluminum ladder over the wood. Holds a lot more weight as you are carrying heavy stuff up. Remember to buy wood shims and 2 3/4 to 3" drywall screws to install. You'll also need two boards the wider than the opening to screw to the ceiling so that you can temporarily hold the ladder in place while you secure it. Watch a you tube video before you do it.

Although the ladder is aluminum it is not as sturdy / solid as I expected it to be it is somewhat flimsy, Yes it will get the job done & it's better than the wood unit I replaced but buyer be aware the ladder is not as wide or as solid as one would expect. With more use I will revaluate just how the unit holds up. Installation is standard by that I mean if your a handy kind o guy it should be no problem but it is a two man job only due to weight and awkward size but this goes for any model of this type o ladder. You will need a finish molding to frame once installed because the pulldown "door" does sit lower than the ceiling finish, what is flush with the ceiling is the "frame" of the unit. As for the pull down mechanism, for the little I've used it, it seems smooth & retracts smooth & tight to the weather seal built into the unit. There are 4 exposed chrome carriage bolts not bad looking but FYI, why there not flush mount or countersunk I don't know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product. This was the first time I've ever installed an attic ladder. If you've ever installed a door before, this is very similar. Moderately difficult because you're working overhead and in an un-climate controlled attic. Other than that, it was pretty simple.

My opening was 22.25" and the ladder fit, but it was very tight...not much wiggle room at all so it's about impossible to do any straightening if your opening isn't square. Also, the dimension from the first temporary support board to the second board is VERY important. Too wide and the ladder can fall through...too short (by fractions) and you can't get the door open in step 2.3.c. I'm not sure the prescribed dimension (52.5") takes into account the heads of the bolts that mount the hinge to the frame. If that happens (which it did to me), you need to be prepared to support the ladder from inside the attic while you are up there. After installing the supporting deck screws per step 2.3.a, I used a rope (which I had taken with me in case I had trouble) to support the end opposite the hinge, then opened the door and climbed down. I then put the frame of the ladder in the proper spot and drove in two deck screws per step 2.3.d. After that, I put all the hex head lag screws in to secure the ladder. The use of a hack saw on the legs is a bit or work but the end result (by following the instructions to the "T") is fantastic. The ladder legs are perfectly aligned with no gaps at the hinges and the foot of the ladder is perfectly placed on the floor. I couldn't be happier with the ladder, the instructions, and the results.

I purchased this product at my local Home Depot and made arrangements we a carpenter friend to install it. When he arrived and unpacked the item, we discovered that it had mold on the wood frame and door. The ladder frame also was not square. The inside of the packaging showed evidence of having been wet (but was not wet/damp at the time). Because I had my installer there and because the store I bought this at was 45 minutes away, I could not ask my installer to wait over an hour and a half for me to return this item for a new one (with no guarantee there was a "clean" item in store). We applied straight bleach to the moldy area and my installer worked like a champ to get the attic ladder in place and secured. I went back to the store where I made this purchase and the service personnel advised me to write this review and post pictures. I am happy with the product now that it is up and usable. I am not happy with the quality of this Werner product as packaged and delivered to my local Home Depot.

Despite some minor damage to the wooden frame that became visible only after the product was removed from its packaging, the ladder was relatively easy to install by someone with only modest DIY experience. The 22.5 in. width would be pretty narrow for some larger individuals or for moving large items into the attic. Since I've only had it a couple of weeks, the durability remains to be seen, but it seems sturdy enough up to this point. I like the aluminum ladder better than similar ladders made of wood that I have known in the past. The aluminum is just as strong, but much lighter in weight.
