Make accessing your loft easy with this semi-automatic loft hatch. The hatch is fitted with an electric motor, which is operated by remote control. A simple press of a button opens and closes the hatch. All you have to do is unfold and re-fold the attached ladder. For your protection, an in-built safety system constantly monitors the hatch during opening and closing in order to stop the motor should abnormal resistance be detected. The electric loft hatch also has a battery back up so it can be opened in the event of a power cut. The ladder for a 560mm width is fitted with metal handrails and all larger widths have timber handrails. Please note this ladder requires a 3 pin 240V electric socket to be situated within 1 metre of the intended opening. Please arrange for a qualified electrician to install a socket in your loft prior to fitting the hatch as power is required during installation.
The ladder is made from southern yellow pine sourced from managed forests in North America, this is the same timber used in the construction of timber frame houses. We use SAPS grade timber which is a hard wearing timber with minimal knots or defects. The ladder treads are located into grooves in the stiles (the upright parts of the ladder), the treads are glued before being clamped and nailed. The result is a robust, sturdy ladder. The inner and outer frame of the Stira stairs are made from White Deal sourced from managed forests in Northern Europe. This is another strong reliable construction grade timber.
The Stira folding attic stairs features a substantial outer frame which is 108mm x 32mm, this deep frame gives the Stira a solid attachment to the joists in the attic. The outer frames importance is often overlooked but it is essential as this frame will be carrying the weight of the stairs through the hinges and linkage arms, which are the main load bearing parts of any folding stairs or loft ladder.
The inner frame of the semi auto loft ladder links the outer frame with the ladder, this provides the Stira loft ladders with their structural integrity and strength. The inner frame is exclusive to Stira only. As we don’t attach the ladder directly to the trapdoor this permits the standard lid of the Stira to be replaced with an alternative lid of the customers choice.
