Free detail for loft ladder
« on: July 07, 2006, 10:17:23 AM »
Here is a one page PDF of the ladder and railing we use for access to a small loft. The ladder sits in a bracket on the wall until it is pulled out and braced on a rung.

I may use this idea for the last 3 steps up into my cupola in the garage - still need access to the storage area over the porch.  This would allow that.

It looks like ladder is not fixed at the top... ???
I think it should, otherwise it may fall back when climbing on it.

The top of the ladder rests with the rails on either side of the storage bracket. The angled ladder is locked in place when pressure is put on it and is loose so it can be lifted up and stored vertically on the pegs. Nobody has ever been able to get it to fall backwards.

Some folks have initially tried to climb it while it is hanging vertically, but that does not work out so well. ??? They soon figure it out.

Here is another option for a loft stair - the Jefferson or alternate tread stair.

I have some rough guidelines for assembly.
