Can this ladder be installed in a ceiling with 2x4 joists?

My garage ceiling drywall is fastened directly to the 2x4 joists of the attic trusses. There's no doubt that the trusses will support the ladder, but are 2x4 joists tall enough for the ladder to be mounted?

The installation video specifically mentions using lag screws and flat washers for final mounting to joists and headers, and a machine screw, lock washer, and cap nut for attaching the ladder feet. None of these are mentioned as required hardware at the beginning of the video, while other hardware is mentioned (#8 deck screws, shims, and 1x4 support boards).

What hardware is included?

how to relieve stress on replacement gas struts for my new attic ladder

I received the warranty struts along with instructions on how to remove the old struts. The problem is the new gas struts have the metal straps attached and I can't overcome the pressure to utilize the new straps in order to remove the old gas strut. Having no idea of how much pressure is involved I would like some clarification regarding this matter thanks

Answers

Answer: 
To decompress struts, apply wrench to gear. While maintaining a firm grip on the wrench, remove the two lag screws from the gear rack. Next, compress the strut slightly to disengage the gear ratchet hook from the tab on the side of the frame (while facing the ladder, right side turn clockwise, left side turn counter clockwise). After your clip is disengaged, utilize a large screwdriver to pull/pry up on the gear ratchet hook to guide it over the tabs while slowly relieving the pressure with the wrench (while facing the ladder, right side counter clockwise, left side clockwise). After you have successfully allowed the gear ratchet hook to pass all three tabs and relieved any remaining pressure, you can remove the wrench from the gear. Your strut is decompressed, repeat process on opposite side. After you have successfully decompressed both struts, disconnect the strut from the ball joint on the gear rack. To do so, apply a flat head screwdriver to the clip on the back of the head of the strut. Pry slightly up on the clip while applying pressure to the body of the strut away from the ball joint. When the metal clips on the inside of the strut head disengage, the strut will pop of the ball joint. Repeat this process on the other side and allow struts to hang flat against the door.

Age: 55-65
In the diagram labeled Figure 3 on page 14 of “AH2210/AH2510/AE2210 Series Aluminum Attic Ladder Installation Instructions”, when the second section of the ladder is unfolded, it reaches its maximum swing clearance in the form of an arc. I need to know the distance, in inches from the ceiling, where that maximum swing clearance is met, since my landing space falls just inside a doorway.

Answer: 
Werner Co. does not offer a written or implied warranty on its products. We do stand behind the quality and workmanship of our models. Issues of this nature would usually become evident within the first 6 to 12 months of ownership. Please call customer care about the issues you are having with the gas struts.

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.
