Telesteps v Traditional Loft Ladders
Posted by Neil Bruce - August 18, 2009
At Toolstop, we've been playing with the Telesteps 60324 Telescopic Loft Ladder. We can categorically say that it is head and shoulders above a conventional loft ladder, here's why:
The telescopic loft ladders have special latches on each rung which enable each rung to push up flush against the next rung meaning it all pushes together and makes the ladder extremely portable. Therefore, once you buy one at the hardware shop it will fit in the boot of your car. Or if you buy one online the carriage will be cheaper due to the size compared to a conventional (normally 2 piece) loft ladder.
The installation of a Telesteps loft ladder is also easy. They come fully assembled. Just 2 springs and 6 screws - job done! I managed to install one in about 20 minutes from the word "go".
Telesteps loft ladders take up zero space in your loft so can be used in the tightest of spaces. Traditional loft ladders because they are normally only in 2 sections will stretch across your loft space when stored up there leaving less useable space in the loft. Most lofts (like mine) are used for storage and these ladders will enable you to maximise your loft storage space for as much "junk" as possible.
These are simple to use, smooth and robust and there is no competition from traditional style loft ladders. They come in 2 different styles and can be found for purchase online at Toolstop.
As well as loft ladders Telesteps have a range of telescopic lean-to ladders, combi ladders, multi purpose ladders and platforms. These are all made from sturdy aluminium so are lightweight and won't suffer from rust. There are a range of accessories as well such as safety feet so they don't slip, adjustable legs so you can work on uneven surfaces, top supports to allow you to work against corners and uneven walls and bags to carry them in.
Having tested all of these products I can vouch for their quality, robustness, ease of use and innovation.
Several experts have commented on the cons of Telesteps but we firmly believe in them.
Will telescopic loft ladders eventually take the place of traditional loft style ladders?
