    Q:We got this ladder for a new construction home but when we go to close it the stairs don’t have a spring to pull them up easily. We have to use another ladder in order to reach high enough to fold the ladder up. Are we missing something?

      Q:Does this ladder have a latch that secures the hatch closed? If not, will the hatch sag to a partially open position over time?
      by|Jan 7, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  This model has a spring close so when you fold the ladder and push the door up it will stay closed. Our models that have an actual locking mechanism are the LWP, LWT, and LMS models.

        Q:What is the cost of the additional steps needed to work for a 10' 10" ceiling?
        by|Jun 12, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  LWF 22.5x47 fire rated ladder has maximum ceiling height of 8'11" and it cannot be extended. Perhaps you are asking about LST, metal scissor ladder which has an option of adding the steps. Additional steps for the LST are $79 each.

            This ladder was certainly an upgrade over the 40+ year old ladder in our house however, I think there's a flaw in the design. After many emails back and forth with Fakro support the conclusion is that the ladder door board is not made to be flush with the ladder frame. The instruction, however, say to install the ladder frame flush with the ceiling. If you do this the door board sits down a half inch lower than the ceiling. Apparently this is just the way this ladder is supposed to be installed. Obviously if you knew this going in you could have your installer mount the frame above ceiling height so that the door is flush with the ceiling. Then you could trim the frame tighter. The ladder itself is very well built and other than the above design flaw I'd recommend it fully. Honestly, I can't believe they didn't design this ladder for the board to be flush with the frame. Even if Fakro admitted the ladder had a design flaw and sent me a new one I'd still be on the hook another $500 to install it. Very frustrating. And for a $600+ ladder there should be no flaws like this.

              I had this professionally installed. It is heavy their three person crew did fine. Cutting the truss to install was no problem. I love the quality and the handrail and most importantly the width for ease in accessing the space. Insulated and fire resistant all factored. I recommend it. It comes with a quality metal pull down rod so I am returning the optional rod I also bought.

              This is a really nice ladder, I have installed many non fire rated ones and this is much better by far. The one thing to remember is its about 92 pounds, so not easy to install by yourself.

              high quality ladder thats approved for use in a garage
              This ladder is really well made and is very easy to operate. I wantwd a ladder that I could use for my garage attic for easy frequent access. Unfortunately, most attic ladder doors are not fire rated. This ladder is more pricey than others but i can assure you its absolutely worth it. It feels premium when opening closing are walking up amd down

                Special ordered the fire rated attic ladder. Picked up the ladder from Home Depot without any problems. Installed and am pleased with the quality of the unit. Needed 10ft. 4in. so I had to build a base plate to make up the extra 3in. Biggest complaint, unit had two different length springs shipped with the unit. One goes on each side of the ladder. Unit has different attachment points for the springs but no instructions at all on which spring goes to which side or anchor location. Called and emailed the manufacture and never heard back. Rigged it up based on my experience and it works great. Very pleased with the product. Totally unhappy with the lack of response from the manufacture.
