AH2210 22.5 in W x 54 in L x 8 ft to 10 ft H Ceiling Aluminum Attic Ladder is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Check Factory measurements The ladder was mounted in the box frame crooked. From one end to the other it was 1/2" off which would have made it open at a angle and possibly not open/close properly. They use jigs for hole placement so by not paying attention it was off. So I had to drill new holes , move the bolts and add extra washers to cover up the 2 holes per bolt.. Nowadays you have to check everything you buy. Even my 7 year old grandson could see the out of alignment. Step rungs could be another 1 - 2" wider as when you get to the steps with the plywood behind them you have to basically use your toes to step with

Rated 1 out of 5 by from quality control needs help Be careful when you buy this. The packing was fine but after I hired someone to put it up the wood was cracked and we were at the point I could not return. Can even find the info on the website to complain. The door itself is cracked and bent. The manufacturing of this product over tightened the screws. Now that's it's up I can see where it's not flush. If you get this door be careful

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit as advertised I have a new garage with a ceiling height of 9' 6" the installation went well until I pulled the ladder down. The ladder is 5" - 6" short, I had to build a platform to support the bottom of the ladder. After reading others with the same problem it's strange that Werner did not address this safety factor in past. Support to me to get the correct size! DUH................I have the correct size 8' to 10' ceiling is 9'6"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bent out of shape I picked up mine at Home Depot, he standard 25 by 54. Ididn't noticed the wooden door was warped till after I installed it causing a 1/4" gap. Yes, I used a level. I can see the warped door, not sure if it was cause by the way they are stored at the store. Maybe I should have picked one further back in the shelf as I remember the packaging looked newer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warranty? What Warranty? (NOTE: I believe the model I have is no longer made. On the Home Depot receipt, the SKU shows "3632") I bought these stairs for a garage attic in 2005. They get used rarely, and I would be close to correct if I said they've been used about 50 times total over the last 12 years. Today, one of the articulating joints - the one with the red release handle - busted as I was folding the ladder to go back up. I called their customer support and was told there was nothing they could do for me because this was not a replaceable part. I have my original purchase receipt from Home Depot, but can't find the user guide to tell me what the warranty is, so...I got online and checked Werner's site. I was surprised to find an FAQ that said "we don't offer a warranty on our products, but we do stand behind them". I may be old school, but "stand behind them" has always meant to me "if it breaks, you can trust us to take care of you". What I got on the call today was lip service. Needless to say, I won't be buying another Warner ladder.

attic ladder door

my opening to attic is 20 3/4 " X 53 1/2 . can you make on for me ? ROBERT
Asked by: robert
Unfortunately we do not customer make any attic ladders. You might want to consider looking at the AA1510 which does not require a specific rough opening. The rough opening cannot be smaller than 18x24.

Is the AH2210 a drop-in replacement for the W2210?

I have a W2210 that needs to be replaced. Is the AH2210 a suitable replacement if I want to go with aluminum instead of wood? Can it be installed into the existing (finished) opening?
Asked by: HP
Yes the AH2210 would be a suitable replacement. It has the same rough opening as the W2210 which is 22 1/2"x54". This will fit a floor to ceiling height of 7'8" to 10'3".

I have a purchased a AH2210, and I have a 10' 7" ceiling, can I get feet extensions?

Can I buy taller feet for my ladder, to fit my 10' 7" ceiling?
Asked by: Joe
The AH2210 has a maximum floor to ceiling height of 10'3". This ladder does not have an extension, or additional sections to make the ladder fit a larger height. To reach a height of 10'7", the 12 foot attic ladder model AH2512 would be needed.

The AH2210 and the AH2210B are physically the same ladder. The difference between the two is the AH2510B is packaged in a different style box.

Is there a nicer pull-down handle?

I don't want the Assist Pole Kit, and there's no picture of what that looks like. I just want a nicer handle. The one it comes with is too small and thus does not providet a good grip. The rope could be slightly thicker too. Do you have different handles available or know where I could find them?
Asked by: Putty
This is the only handle that we manufacture for this model of ladder.

my trusses are 22.5" apart and the ceilings are 12 foot, what is the strongest ladder I can get?

Asked by: jeremy
The only ladder available for a 12 foot ceiling is the AH2512. The AH2512 has a rough opening requirement of 25 x 66 inches. The largest ladder with a 22.5 inch wide opening has a maximum floor to ceiling height of 10'3". It may be possible to expand the opening to reach the larger requirement, depending on the type of structure you have. Please refer to the installation instructions for guidance. You may need to consult with the builder or designer as well.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
