    Hi All
    Had a look through the previous posts, but couldn't find anything up to date.

    I'm having some work done in my house, and would like a concertina ladder as they seem strong and compact with good tread sizes. We also don't want to ladder to intrude into the loft space for other reasons.

    I'm seriously thinking about a Premier Loft Ladders Elite 10 tread one, but at £900 with the vat it is right at the top end, but does meet the brief.

    However, would anyone have any other suggestions?
    One of the 'needs' is that it must be able to work independent of the loft hatch, as the hatch needs to open to the side, rather than in line with the ladder.

    Many thanks

    I bought a loft hatch with loft ladder for £119 this year, and it is very good. A solid, wooden ladder, easy to pull down, very well balanced, and sits on the hatch door.
    They start at £65 for small openings. Arrived in a few days of ordering

    this is the one I got:

    Best value I could find - I searched for ages (over a year, not constantly though) as I wanted something to fit a large hatch opening. Eventually saw somebody selling them on amazon for £300, and managed to track down the supplier from their advert.

    I've had a strong word with myself, and there is no way I'm spending £900 on a loft ladder.
    What was i thinking!!!

    I'll keep searching and i may end up going for a slider one instead. Can't do the fold up as these need to use the hatch. My ladder option needs to be totally independent of the hatch.
    Thanks
