Rated 4 out of 5 by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good attic ladder, but not long enough. I built my new race shop using 10' studs. The poured concrete floor has a 3.5" perimeter curb on which there are two 2x4 bottom plates, 10' stud, and two 2x4 top plates then the trusses. This points the bottom of the trusses 10'-10" from the floor. This attic ladder only supports heights to 10'-3". So I have to build a platform to support the bottom of the ladder.So beware!!!! If use used 10' studs you could be in trouble.Werner should consider making this model of its ladder a few inches longer. 10' studs are very common. March 4, 2016

Unfortunately we do not manufacture a 25" x 54" attic ladder with an energy seal. The AE2210 is the only one we manufacture with the energy seal and it is 22.5" x 54".

Answer: 
In order to support the weight of the door, we would suggest buying a heavier duty gas strut for the attic ladder. You can purchase model number 36-81.

I'm an architect and would appreciate a CAD file download of your various attic access ladders.
If CAD is not available, a PDF of the ladder profile would help.

Reading through several years of Q&A it is apparent that having a downloadable PDF drawing of the ladder (plan view, profile view & front view) would help resolve many questions.
Thanks,

Can this be installed if have steel beams?

This question is a general question and not specific to this product. The condo we bought has a steel frame so the beams in the attic are metal and not wood. If we wanted to install an attic ladder I assume it has to be attached to the beams ... how would one go about doing this with metal beams since you just can't screw into them?

Answer: 
Unfortunately you will not be able to install this ladder if the frame is built with metal beams. Please see the AA1510 which can be installed to the floor of your attic.

Will this work if my attic's opening is 53.5 in long?

Age: 25-34

My attic opening only measures 53.5 inches. This says the "rough" opening is 54 inches. Does that mean it will be able to fit in the 53.5 inch opening? I know it's very close, but I didn't want to get the ladder unpacked and have it not fit and have to return it. Is 53.5 inches the standard opening for attics?

Answers

Answer: 
This will work with your rough opening size of 53.5" Standard rough opening size for this ladder is 22.5"x54", however there is some flexibility with this and it would be able to install in this opening.

One of the red locking handles will not release to fold up the ladder

In my attempt to stow the ladder, the red locking device on the right side of the ladder would not release causing the ladder to remain down. Is there another way to get the handle to release so I may fold the ladder and close it? It is in the way of parking when down.

Answer: 
The AE2210 will only work with a ceiling height between 7'8" and 10'3". In this case we would recommend the model WH2208, that is compatible with ceiling heights between 7' and 8'9".

I have a floor to ceiling height of 10' 6". The rafter spacing is 22.5 inches, and I cannot cut the rafter to allow for the wider 25.5 inch unit. Is it possible to extend the legs on the AE2210 unit to accommodate my ceiling height?If not the AE2210, perhaps another unit you carry in the 22.5" width will work for me.
Thanks for your help.

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.
