Premier Loft Ladders Elite is manufactured from high strength die-cast aluminium alloy and is attached to a laminated wood backboard (19mm thick x 200mm high) for fitting to a vertical surface, though when fitted with the winkelband (accessory hinge), it can instead be fixed to a horizontal surface to access a vertical opening. This ladder is supplied with two heavy duty counter-balanced springs incorporated into pivot brackets to ensure that it can be raised and lowered with a minimum of effort. It is manufactured to EN14975 with a load bearing per tread of 200 kgs.
The Elite can now be offered complete with a special construction white coated Multiplex backboard, which subject to the height, would also be reinforced with steel uprights. Additional treads would ready fixed (position can be adjusted) with a grab rail to both sides. The height of the special backboard is variable up to 2000mm high x up to 1200mm wide.
