AH2510 25 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.

Does the gas strut slow the ladder on ascent AND descent? Also does the operation deteriorate with age, use or heat in the attic? Replacement costs?

Asked by: Kirbo
The gas struts are designed to assist with opening and closing of the attic ladder. The gas struts will help pull the ladder closed without slamming. Over time, the gas struts may or may not need replaced. Replacement struts are available. The replacements can be installed by removing the old pair and attaching the new ones to the existing ladder hardware with provided attachmenting hardware.

Can insulated panels (or other insulation) be carefully added between the ladder and the door to approach the insulation rating of the AE2210?

I like AH2510 over the AE2210 because it mounts flush to the ceiling and it is a little wider but it's not insulated
Asked by: Jerry
The Werner Co offers an Attic Ladder Installation and Trim Kit number AC59. This kit contains trim for installing around the ladders, as well as Bulb Seal and Adhesive Backed Weatherstripping for around the door.

I measure my ceiling opening on current pulldown attic ladder to be 7 feet 6 3/8 in. What model ladder will fit? I see the closest is 7 feet 8 in.

Do I have to stay with a wooden ladder and just cut to fit?
Asked by: Bob
The AH2510 has a minimum floor to ceiling height of 7 feet 8 inches. To reach a lower floor to ceiling height, it would be recommended to either use the wooden attic ladder or the aluminum compact attic ladder. The wooden ladders, WH2508 and W2508 are similar ladders in that they have the same rough opening as the AH2510. The compact attic ladder, the AA1510, has a floor to floor height range of 7 feet up to 9 feet 10 inches.

Replacement Ladder

I'm replacing my old Werner S2208 attic ladder and wanted to know which ladder would be the replacement?
Asked by: Rudi
The AH2210 would be the closest replacement for your product. You would need to check the rough opening, swing clearance and landing space required to ensure the ladder would work for your application. All of these specifications can be found on our website. Thank you for your inquiry.

Current Ceiling Height is 7' 6 1/2"

Whereas the install dimensions are 7'8" to 10'3", can the feet on the AH2510 be trimmed to accommodate this 1 1/2 inch deficiency?
Asked by: Steve
We would no suggest using the AH2510 with a floor to ceiling height of 7'6". Please view our W and WH series of attic ladders.

Do all of your attic ladders have handrails and if so, how long has that been a standard feature?

Asked by: Chelsea
The AH series of aluminum attic ladders has a handrail installed on the top section of the ladder. The handrail is mounted to the right side of the top section. The handrail has been present since the AH was first manufactured in 2011.

Difference between AH2510 & AH2510B?

Amazon has the AH2510 aluminum attic ladder from a company w/ free shipping (not free Prime shipping) ...you have a link on your website that takes me to one of the national big-box retail hardware stores, which lists what appears to be the same ladder, but the model had a "B" at the end, shown as AH2510B - priced at a substantially lower price...what is the difference in the models? I'm wondering which is the better quality ladder or if there even is a difference?
Asked by: Chris
The AH2510 and the AH2510B are physically the same ladder. The difference between the two is the AH2510B is packaged in a different style box.

Will this fit?

My rough opening is 25 x 53. I need to replace the existing attic ladder that is there. Will this model fit?
Asked by: JDS
This ladder has requires a rough opening of 22.5 inches by 54 inches. The framework of the ladder is 53.25 inches in length. There is a small amount of play when installing this attic ladder but with a 53" RO we would not suggest installing this attic ladder.

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.
