The Cadet wooden loft ladder and hatch combines traditional style with modern engineering…

The result is an attractive and thermally-efficient loft ladder that is perfectly suited for residential/domestic applications.

The Cadet is available as either a 3-part folding wooden loft ladder (shown here) or a 2-part sliding ladder. The 3-part folding version, Cadet 3, results in minimal protrusion into the loft/attic above. It therefore saves valuable loft space. The 2-part sliding Cadet 2 is best suited for rooms with higher ceilings (up to 3.34m).

Key benefits at a glance…

  • Well insulated (U-value 0.90 W/m2K)
  • Airtight seal (Class 4 certified)
  • Load capacity of 150kg per step
  • Wide steps / treads with anti-slip profile for comfort and safety
  •  Hatch box trap door finished in white on both sides
  •  Supplied ready to install

Standard sizes or made-to-measure
The Cadet is available in a range of standard sizes, with opening lengths of 1120mm to 1400mm, and widths of either 600mm or 700mm. Our standard sizes also cater for floor-to-ceiling heights between 2200mm and 2880mm, therefore making them suitable for the majority of applications.

However, the Cadet 3 wooden loft ladder and hatch box can also be made-to-measure, to fit the exact dimensions of your ceiling opening and room height. This ensures an optimum fit and eliminates the need for costly ceiling alterations.

Quality assurance
Both the Cadet 2 and 3 wooden loft ladders are manufactured and tested in accordance with EN 14975 (DN 4570). They are also supplied with a 2-year full warranty and 10-year parts warranty.
