Premier Loft Ladders add space saving staircase specification to NBS

January 2017

Premier Loft Ladders have made specifying your next space saving staircase easier than ever before. ‘Compatta’ product data is now available within NBS software.

It is therefore the ideal solution for loft conversions or mezzanine floors where space is limited. To help architects and designers, Premier Loft Ladders has made technical data for the Compatta staircase available within NBS specification software. It can be found within sections L30 and 30-05-40.
