FAKRO's folding attic ladders have a quick fixing system which enables the ladder to be easily installed by one or two people. Adjusting the height of the ladder and steps (ladder toe space) is very easy to do. Not much room is needed when opening or closing the attic ladder. Once closed the attic ladder will fold and fit into the ceiling and therefore maximizing available free space!
The main types of attic ladders available are:
Wood Folding Ladder Types:
Basic Wooden model - LWN (for barns, non-insulated garages, projects with limited insulation requirements, e.t.c... Not recommended for the indoors of homes).

Note: Pls. provide ladder type and size when ordering the handrail.
Upper Hatch (LXW-B)
The Optional Upper Hatch (LXW-B) prevents attic dust from accumulating on the hatch and steps of the closed ladder. It improves the overall insulating parameters and tightness of the ladder on which it is installed. The height of the upper hatch box is 7 3⁄4 inches. Available for ladders LWN, LWP, LWF, LWT, OWM, LMS, LML. For the LST model ladder, the extension box LXN should be installed prior to the upper hatch.
