Compact loft conversion stairs for family home

May 2018

Loft conversions are a popular way to add valuable space to a home. One of the biggest challenges with any loft conversion is where to put the stairs. Also, what type of staircase should you go for? Home owners Bobby and Simon had exactly these concerns when planning the conversion of the loft in their family home in Norfolk.

The challenge…
As part of a wider home renovation project, Bobby and Simon took the decision to create an attic room. They formed an opening to the loft and left space on the landing for the loft stairs. However, neither the opening or the landing were large enough for a full-size staircase or spiral stairs. As such, they needed a space saving solution. Also, given the prominent location of the staircase, they needed to look good.

Safety was also a key consideration. With a young child, it was important that the new staircase minimised any risk of falling between gaps and featured handrails.

The Solution
Bobby and Simon contacted Premier Loft Ladders for advice on suitable loft conversion stairs. The Compatta space saving staircase was an ideal solution, but getting the specification right was particularly important if it was going to be able to meet all of Bobby and Simon’s needs.

Full details of the dimensions were given to Premier Loft Ladders, as well as a few photos of the existing opening and landing. These were then used to determine the ideal stair arrangement. A straight run with 10 treads was optimum in this instance. However, the existing opening was too short. After consultation with their builder, Bobby and Simon confirmed that they could extend the opening/well to achieve the required length.

“We love the stairs and everyone who sees the extension always comments on how nice they look”
Bobby and Simon

To complement the colour scheme of their home, Bobby and Simon chose the white finish for the structure and the natural Beech finish for the treads and handrail. In addition, their new loft stairs were fitted with ‘safety riser bars‘. These are fitted to the underside of the treads and prevent a 100 mm sphere (e.g. a baby or small child) from passing through the gap. Also, because of the distance between the staircase and the wall, handrails were fitted to both sides.

The results…
The conversion of the loft into a usable family space in Bobby and Simon’s home was a key part of their renovation project. Therefore, gaining safe and easy access to the new room was important. However, with limited space for the loft conversion stairs, the best solution was the Compatta alternating tread staircase. The Compatta loft stairs fit perfectly within the available space. In addition, the adaptable modular design meant that Bobby and Simon could choose a finish that suited the rest of the decor.

Klimatec 160 Passivhaus Loft Ladder

April 2018

The Klimatec 160 is a high performance solution for passive and low carbon buildings. Not only does it offer superb thermal insulation and an airtight seal, but it also benefits from 30-minute fire protection.
The Klimatec 160 is the latest product in the Premier Loft Ladders range to be certified by the Passive House Institute (PHI) for use in passive buildings. It offers very high thermal insulation, achieving a U-value of just 0.34 W/m2K. It also features a class 4 certified airtight seal. As such, it is extremely effective at keeping the warmth in the building. An optional secondary upper-cover adds further insulation, while the ‘air seal kit’ ensures an airtight seal between the outside of the hatch box and the building.
Fire protection as standard…
An important benefit that sets the Klimatec 160 apart from other passive house certified loft ladders is the fact it offers fire protection as standard. The 30-minute fire rating makes it ideal for projects that must achieve the highest standards in energy efficiency, but also require protection from fire.

Strength and durability…
The loft ladder itself is made of high strength steel components. When not in use, the ladder folds-up within the hatch box. Counter-balance springs and ball-bearings help to ensure smooth and easy operation.
The large treads (360mm wide x 120mm deep) have a load rating of 250kg, making the Klimatec 160 suitable for use in heavy duty applications. Furthermore, the steel components have a high-quality white powder coat finish for both aesthetics and durability.
