Premier Loft Ladders provide a safe, convenient discrete access to car dealership

March 2017

Premier Loft Ladders provide a safe, convenient and discrete solution for access to a premium car dealership plant room

Supreme fire rated loft ladder with electric operation

Premier Loft Ladders has recently helped Horizon Construction provide a safe and convenient access solution to a 1st floor plant room within a premium car showroom. What made this project particularly challenging was the 1.8m deep ceiling void. In addition, the access point was also in a prominent location outside the showroom offices.

The challenge…
Horizon Construction have recently carried out a comprehensive refurbishment of a premium car dealership in Southend-on-Sea. As part of the refurbishment, a new means of access was required for the plant room. However, the access point was located outside the offices within the showroom. Because it is a prominent location, in view of customers, the access was completely obscured with ceiling tiles. Therefore, whenever someone needed to get into the plant room, large sections of the ceiling would need to be removed.
Furthermore, with a floor-to-floor height of over 4.2 metres, gaining access to the plant room was particularly difficult and potentially dangerous. As a result, a safe and convenient solution was required for accessing the plant room. It also needed to be as discrete as possible to ensure a quality appearance within the showroom.

The solution…
Following a site survey and a review of the existing access ladder, it was very clear that the Supreme heavy duty loft ladder would be the ideal solution. The Supreme benefits from a high strength aluminium concertina ladder, while also being very easy to operate (requiring less than 3kg of operating force). It also includes a highly insulated hatch, therefore helping to retain warm air in the showroom and preventing a draught of cold air.
The Supreme can be configured for ceiling heights as high as 4.6m, so could have been installed directly into the floor of the plant room. However, this would not resolve the problem associated with showroom ceiling. It would require a secondary suspended ceiling hatch, therefore increasing cost and effort.
Instead, Premier Loft Ladders proposed a specially constructed hatch box that was 1.87m deep. This meant the ladder would be easily accessible at the showroom ceiling height and very easy to access and operate. The deep hatch features large non-slip treads and grab rails on both sides, as shown in the image here. As such, the bespoke Supreme loft ladder provides a safe and seamless transition through the ceiling void to the plant room above.

The results…
Details of the proposed solution were provided to Horizon Construction with accompanying technical drawings. The proposal satisfied exactly what they needed and was within budget. Furthermore, within just over two weeks from receipt of the order, the specially constructed Supreme loft ladder arrived on-site. Horizon Construction used a tripod and pulley to lift the unit up into place during installation, then fitted a safety guard rail around the opening of the hatch in the plant room. Ceiling tiles could then be fitted around the suspended ceiling hatch and the finishing touches applied.
In conclusion, the Supreme loft ladder from Premier Loft Ladders provides a safe, discrete and easy-to-use solution for access to the car dealership plant room. Both Horizon Construction and the dealership owners are pleased with the finished result.

Taking the right steps to combat fire

January 2017

A fire rated loft hatch and ladder provides safe and convenient access into a loft or attic, while still providing up to 90 minutes of fire resistance. It can also provide high levels of thermal insulation and therefore help to keep energy costs down.

Premier Loft Ladders has released an application solution guide for fire rated loft ladders. It provides useful tips and advice on subjects such as the choice between aluminium or wooden fire rated loft ladders, as well as considerations such as thermal insulation and strength.

You can also find details of Premier Loft Ladders' fire rated versions of both precision-engineered retractable aluminium and folding wooden loft ladders.
