Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Rails do not slide easily I have to use a lot of force to get the rails to slide into position. They are not true and there is significant friction between the segments of the ladder. This is not something I checked before I had fully installed the ladder, not really sure how you would check that, and it is not worth pulling out now to get replaced. I worry that over time the warping and force I have to apply to use the ladder will make it unusable. September 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Home Depot says max is 9' On the Home Depot site they say the range is 7' to 9'.Your site says 9'10" and that the AA1510B at Home Depot is the same as AA1510. December 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The only ladder that would fit in my attic I got very lucky with my dimensions, an inch here or there and this ladder would not have worked "measure carefully!!! it was harder for me to make a new attic door than to install the ladder. I had drywall for an opening. I was missing two washers that lucky I had. Once it's in it works very well. The door could use a chain or spring to keep it from hitting the wall as mentioned in another review. But overall happy! July 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by instructions probably need some revision I have just installed your Compact Attic Ladder to make use of the small amount of storage space available between our ceiling and our roof, and I am offering some comments about my experience with installing it. We have a two-story home and the opening and space requirements apparently met the requirements needed by the ladder (after I previewed the specifications and instructions online). However, only upon installation did I find out some shortcomings in your instructions and specifications which seem, in retrospect, intended only for homes that are “perfect” for the installation of this particular ladder. The most significant of these shortcomings I discovered is that I could not install the spring-power assist lift arm for the following reason: your instructions indicate 28” of vertical clearance space at the ceiling opening (pg. 2 of instructions). Moreover, the diagram accompanying the instructions shows the vertical arrow at the side of the opening opposite the side where the ladder will be stored. However, in reality, the 28” of vertical clearance is needed along the movement of the assist arm, which is a few feet away from the opposite side of the ceiling opening. Because I am using the storage space below my roof, and the location of the assist arm is deep inside the opening, the pitch of my roof did not provide the necessary clearance for the free movement of the assist arm. Your instructions and diagrams should be revised to indicate that the vertical clearance needs to be at the location of the assist arm pivot point. The ladder can still be used without the assist arm, but more force needs to be applied when pushing the ladder upward. The ladder can skew off center if the upward force is not evenly applied, but this can be corrected by straightening the ladder after it has been placed in its stored position. However, this puts extra strain on the slim assist pole. I found that the assist pole developed a mild bend after just a couple of practice attempts at lowering and stowing the ladder. Hence, I believe you should also develop a stronger assist pole to go with the ladder. I will probably have to somehow reinforce the pole that I have. Another problem I encountered in the installation is that your instructions on attaching the door do not take into account that some ceilings are made of drywall attached to framing, which is how my ceiling is constructed. The drywall is about a half-inch thick. This caused me problems in deciding where to attach the door. Ultimately, because the ceiling opening also had ¾-inch thick solid wood molding around the opening that supported a removable drywall panel used as a cover, I attached the door to the molding after trimming the molding to be flush with the opening. The door should also have a light metal chain or arm to control its movement. As is, the door swings freely on the hinges and if the door is near a hallway wall (as mine is), it could easily swing past vertical and hit the wall or a picture hanging on the wall. Finally, the ladder and the assist pole leave a lot of aluminum residue on bare hands that touch or handle them. For people who are not comfortable with this, I think that the instructions could advise users that aluminum residue could come off and/or to wipe or wash the ladder and other aluminum components before handling. These are the comments I have about your Compact Attic Ladder after installing it. I should note that I had been looking for a product like this for some time, and previously have had to haul an unextended 16-foot extension ladder into the home and up the stairs in order to access the attic. The Compact Attic Ladder fills a need I was looking to fill, but I think some of the instructions need to be reviewed based on actual user experience. January 2, 2013

The attic opening is in a closet, and floor space is restricted, so I want to know how far the ladder will stick out. Alternatively, what is the angle between the cited 68 and 80 degrees for a 9' ceiling?

It is a Model AA10 Mark 1 (250#) 7-10 foot aluminum latter installed in 2005 by the builder. About 2 to 5 percent of the time it jams when being closed and will not swing up or come back down using the assist pole. Most of the time it is great except for this irritating problem. After fiddling with it from the floor or using a ladder to clear one or more steps, it works again. Any idea on how to make it work consistently as it should? The literature does not address this problem nor is the Model AA10 listed on your web site. Dave G

Answers

Answer: 
If your AA10 is stuck in the down position please try this basic troubleshooting. Grab the bottom rung of the ladder and pull it about waste high. Give the ladder several hard pulls toward you. This should release the ladder allowing it to go up. If the problem still continues please contact customer service at 888-523-3370 M-F from 8am-5pm EST.

I'm considering adding an elevator to my home that would run from the ground floor, to the second, to the attic. I understand our fire code is such that a means to descend from the attic to the second floor must be provided in case of fire and the elevator becomes inoperable. (The elevator shaft will not affect to stairs from the second to the ground floor.) Do you have any attic ladders that allow the ceiling door to be opened from the attic and the ladder unfolded from above? Do you have any solution you might suggest.?

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.
