    Q:how do you define swing clearance? Where is it measured from? The back edge of the stair opening? Or the middle of the opening?
    by|Apr 16, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for the question! Swing clearance is measured from the piano hinge of the ladder to the outside edge of the middle section of the ladder when it is being unfolded and the middle section is parallel with the floor. This is the widest distance of the attic stairway or the "swing clearance" needed to open the ladder!

      Q:We have a knotty pine wood ceiling. Can the knotty pine be installed onto the panel the closes to the ceiling flush to match the wood ceiling?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for the question! Yes, you can add the wood to the door panel. If it is too heavy, and the door won't stay closed, you may need to buy and install some type of latch that keeps the door closed.

          Deliver as advertised. Installation was straight forward and easy. One note.... I did asked Louisville about adding a 5/8inch sheet rock to the door opening, as wanted more fire protection. They answered, saying the ladder/door could withstand the weight of the sheet rock. I wish I could add at picture of the installation, with the sheet rock. Best description, the ladder door is now flush with my ceiling, but adding the 5/8 rock, gave it a 5/8 recess, so I had to leave a 5/8 gap between the door hinge and my ceiling. . .

          Pretty ugly and the instructions are boring.
          Wasn’t bad. The instructions are pretty tedious but you can get through it. Its pretty ugly with big bolt heads on the cover, and the frame is metal but it still cased ok.

            Recommended — sturdy
            Overall this is a solid product and it adds so much accesibilty — well worth the purchase. I’ll mention a few “issues” I had, which were mainly the instructions. First, a schematic was missing and overall the renderings were faded and not well labeled. However, using logic made for a pretty sinple install overall. I did have a rough cut already in my garage before installing so most of the work had been done. It is tough to do this alone and its recommended that you have an extra set of hands.

              Nice sturdy attic ladder
              I bought this ladder for a second story attic I’ve been doing work in (wiring the rooms below for ceiling lights and fans. Our second story has 8 foot ceilings so it’s a pain to climb up into the attic through a high narrow scuttle hole and have fallen once from a step ladder climbing down so i decided to install this fold up access ladder to make it easier and safer. I bought the 22.5 x 54 rough opening ladder. Actual dimension are 21.5 x 53 so you have some wiggle room.

                Although the ladder itself is fine, the piece of composite board it is attached to is a disaster. the very first time i pulled it down, the bold went through the board. too expensive to remove and return the ladder!

                Cardboard Door
                Horrible! The door is cracked on the corner just like the other people. The aluminum stairs are not stable and creak. I paid to have it installed. Now what do I do? Buy the old school wood one. I’ve always had good luck with those.

                  Cheap
                  The panel is thin and cheap. I have always bought Werner ladders. Ladder itself is good, but the cover panel is too thin and it is held on by small rivets that pulled through the panel after a few uses. I have installed at least 20 of the other brands and have never seen this happen

                    very cheaply made
                    We are returning it. The door is MDF and has ugly rivets and it was warped out of square and and door was cracked from the warping… not recommended
