The Fakro brand can be purchased from any good quality & well respected Builders Merchant, Hardware or DIY Outlet throughout Ireland.

The FAKRO Loft Ladder is a folding pine wood ladder. It provides easy and safe access to your loft. When folded, it is 'hidden' in the ceiling, freeing space inside the room. The ladder can be 3 or 4 part folding. The design and materials used guarantee easy, comfortable, and safe access to the loft. The quick fixing system enables the ladder to be easily installed and also facilitates ease of ladder height adjustment.

A standard 36mm thick insulated hatch door is installed with all Fakro Loft Ladders. The hatch door is a pine wood frame, finished on each side with a white or beige HDF panel. The insulation coefficient is 1.1W/m 

The outer side (visible when the door is closed) of the hatch door is smooth with no fixing points visible. The ladder lock and the metal pole supplied facilitates ease of opening and closure of the hatch door. 

The ladder is fastened using angle brackets that enable the ladder to be positioned and fixed precisely. The unique opening mechanism is designed in such a way that it does not hinder access to the loft.The opening door spring mechanism is adjustable in order to suit personal preference.

All loft ladder hatch doors are fully edge sealed with a sealing strip to minimise heat loss. 

Treads are fitted using dovetail joints for added durability. Safety grooves are cut into the treads to prevent slipping.

Brackets facilitate the adjustment of the height of the steps to be made.
