Insulated loft ladders to help to keep your home warm.
Energy efficiency should not be a secondary consideration when you're installing a loft ladder or loft hatch. With clever insulated hatches FAKRO loft ladders can achieve high standards of energy-efficiency helping you stay warm in the winter and stopping your loft hatch from losing valuable energy. As heat rises, inevitably it's trapped towards the top of your rooms, which is where your loft hatch will reside. Installing an energy efficient loft ladder and hatch will help towards reducing your carbon footprint and in reducing your energy bills with no compromise on usability or construction standards.
