Let’s face it, no one likes to climb into the attic. During the winter it’s freezing and in the summer it’s stifling hot. Adding to the unpleasant conditions is climbing a wobbly wooden ladder with treads that flex with each step. Louisville Ladder has a solution for the old wooden attic ladder.
Louisville Ladder introduced an aluminum attic ladder complete with aluminum frame. The unit is 30 percent lighter than a traditional wooden attic ladder and installs in a fraction of the time. In addition to the weight savings, Louisville Ladder added a few clever ideas to make installation a breeze. The aluminum frame is pre-drilled so mounting it is as simple as securing a few screws. Next is adjustable shoes for the feet of the ladder, eliminating the need to cut a perfect angle for the base. Lastly, they added weather stripping to prevent energy loss. Click here to learn more.
