W2210 22.5 in W x 54 in L x 10 ft H Ceiling Wood Attic Ladder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, needs thicker base, & not an easy install alone. Overall a good buy and when installed does the job quiet well. The 1/4" x 21" x 54" base cover is flimsy to say the least. It is not load bearing, but is very fragile during installation. Don't kid yourself; this is not an easy job, especially if one decides to do it alone. Trying to position the ladder unit into a very tight space from within an attic space while in a precarious position is not ideal. A second hand with some muscle and a lot of time might have helped. Easily a two day job. When complete, works well and beats climbing in an attic space while standing on the top run of a folding step ladder. Good long term investment.

Shorter ceiling height

Are the hinges that connect the different wooden ladder sections bolted in a way they can be moved? My ceiling is shorter than the advertised height of your ladders. I assume the height range of the ladder is from the length available to be cut off the bottom ladder section. What if I cut some of the middle ladder section and moved the hinge up? And then cut the bottom section. Then I think the ladder would be short enough to fit. So I need to know if the hinges are movable. Also, will cutting the middle section mess up anything else? Thanks.
Asked by: Dan
We do not recommend using any attic ladder if the floor to ceiling height is not in the range that is advertised. Also we never recommend modifying our ladders at all.

WH2210 vs WU2210

Is WH2210 "heavy" duty compared to the WU2210? The WH2210 at Lowes shows a max weight of 350 and the WU2210 at Home Depot shows a max weight os 250. Just thicker wood?
Asked by: B
These ladders are made with the same type of wood. The WH has slightly thicker wood used for the rails. The location of rivets also play a factor in the duty rating of this ladder.

If I use the W2210 attic ladder how far will it extend out @ floor if I have a 9' height?

I will need the extension to be measured from inside of frame @ hinge side (on top) to inside of ladder rail @ floor. I'm trying to install so that my boat will not interfere with the ladder when down.
Asked by: Eddie
When the ladder is installed, and adjusted to a 9 foot floor to ceiling height, the landing space required is 55 inches from the hinge of the 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.
