The Benefits of Attic Stairs

FAKRO Attic Ladders

If you don’t have enough money or space to install a staircase, pull down attic ladders are a super easy alternative! FAKRO attic ladders also enhance the interior of your home while providing amazing functionality.

FAKRO Attic Ladders

As the name suggests, the pull down stairs are specifically built to give access to an attic or loft space, then to be folded away when not in use. While regular step-ladders are usually the common product to use, they are not as safe, comfortable and aesthetically appealing as attic stairs. FAKRO’s attic ladders can fold the stairs directly up in the attic, and pulled down easily providing access quickly and safely.

Attic stairs for your attic space

Declutter your home and utilize unused attic space. The stairs are simple to operate, simply unlock the flush insulated hatch and guide the stairs to the ground.

FAKRO Attic Stairs

FAKRO Smart Attic Ladders save space while providing convenient storage and access to the attic. Each model features minor adjusts that make installation and fitting the floor-to-ceiling height safe and easy. Insulated models are free from visible hardware making them the perfect addition to any room in the home.


FAKRO insulated attic ladders are sealed and the lid is made from solid wood and MDF with sandwich insulation. Once installed, hardware is fully concealed and the lid is paintable to match any ceiling colour.


Accessories, such as ladder ends and handrails, are included with many models or are available separately, making FAKRO attic ladders suitable for almost any application.


Every FAKRO attic ladder includes a warranty. Insulated attic ladders include a two-year warranty and non-insulated attic ladders include a one-year warranty.

Fully Assembled and Ready to Install

FAKRO attic ladders are pre-assembled and include the frame, hardware, and ladder, and are ready to install.

How to Choose an Attic Ladder

One of the first factors to consider when choosing an attic ladder is the rough opening. FAKRO attic ladders are available in various rough opening dimensions and can be retrofit to existing openings or accommodate a new build. An existing rough opening that does not fit the attic ladder’s rough opening can be framed to accommodate the attic ladder.

The second factor to consider is the ceiling height. Each attic ladder’s rough opening dimension has a ceiling height ranging from the minimum compatible ceiling height to the maximum ceiling height. The attic ladder is suitable for a ceiling height within this range by cutting the ladder, removing or adding steps, as well as making the necessary adjustments outlined in the instructions.

The third factor to consider is the insulation (R-value). All FAKRO attic ladders with an insulation value have a seal, the lid (door) is made from solid redwood pine with either a white finished lid or paintable HDF finish, and hardware is fully concealed when installed. Fire-rated models are also insulated and sealed. 
Non-insulated models have a paintable particleboard lid and are suitable for areas where an insulated attic ladder is not required. 

When choosing an attic ladder also consider the weight-load capacity rating. FAKRO attic ladders are rated according to ANSI standards. Look for the ANSI symbol for certified models.
