The Stira Folding Attic Stairs can be customised to your needs.
To accommodate non standard ceilings heights and frames sizes, our factory is laid out to manufacture unique bespoke attic ladders made to customers needs and specifications.
Manual Stiras can be fitted in ceilings up to 10ft (2.9m), for ceilings of up to 13ft (3.9m) the Custom Built Stira Semi-Automatic can be installed by our experienced fitters to give safe and easy access to your attic. It also allows us to make the frame length much longer, bringing the bottom of the trapdoor closer to the ground making unfolding the bottom section of ladder much easier.
Large frame sizes
The Stira’s innerframe allows us to custom build a Stira with frame width up to 48” (122cm) and length up to 98” (245cm). Our strong innerframe maintains the overall strength of the stairs at these large frame sizes.
For people that have difficulty operating an attic ladder we can build a bespoke Stira with an extra long frame so when the trapdoor is opened down it is closer to the ground and the two bottom sections of the ladder are much smaller and easier to unfold.
Each custom built Stira starts with a consultation with a Stira Fitter on site, where we get the details of what the customers want to achieve with their attic space. Our fitters will go through the customisations and extras available, helping the customer chose a folding attic stairs that not only suits their needs but is easy to use.
Solutions for limited spaces
Double Action Stira
The Double Action Stira was designed for use in tight spaces. A standard 3 fold loft ladder may arc out past the end of the frame when it is being unfolded. If your attic opening is next to a wall this can make it difficult to unfold the ladder. The double action ladder adds an additional fold to the middle section of the ladder allowing it to be unfolded in a smaller space. The Double Action modification can also be done on site by our experienced fitters.
If your are concerned that a Stira may not fit in your home you can always call our sales staff with measurements or get a fitter out to provide a free consultation.
Custom trapdoor lid
The Standard Stira trapdoor is left untreated, the customer can then paint it to suit their own home, this usually means painting it the same colour as the ceiling. However we can replace the standard pine ply lid with a number of alternatives.
Timber lath trapdoors can be made out of any type of timber, please specify your preference when making your appointment.
We can make the trapdoor out of transparent or frosted perspex, this can add extra light into dark hallways.
We can fit a ½ hour fire rated trapdoor.
If you are interested in getting a customised trapdoor our sales staff can advise you over the phone or by email.
