BOX - The Loft Ladder box is made of wood. Within the milled section is situated a peripheral seal. Once the hatch is closed, this seal ensures proper tightness of the entire box structure. The special box design enables quick and easy fitting of the finishing lining or architrave.

Thanks to this, the box is not affected by any deformations and can be operated trouble free once installed. The hinges joining each of the sections provide rigidity to moving connections.

STILE ENDS - Stile ends made of plastic protect the floor surface from scratches and additional add to the overall ladder stability.
HATCH UNLOADING MECHANISM - Operation of the Loft Ladder is significantly improved because of Fakro's unique unloading mechanism. Once unlocked, the hatch opens slowly without any potential danger to the user. Once fully opened, this mechanism will also hold the hatch in position, preventing it from slamming closed.
HATCH BOARD - The loft ladder hatch is made of wood and can be insulated or fireproof. The thermal insulation protects against heat loss and in fire loft ladders against heat build-up in the event of a fire. The external hatch surface is smooth without seeing fixing elements which will go well with any interior design.

These sections can be moved away from the hatch door so as to give extra space for footing ensuring a safer and more comfortable ascent and descent.
