The best type of step ladder to get your decorations out the loft

Getting Christmas decorations down from a loft can be a real battle if you don’t have a suitable ladder to use. Some lofts have a specific ladder you can pull down and use but what about lofts that don’t have this feature? A good quality step ladder is the answer you need as it will provide a solid and stable base so you can take as long as you want getting the decorations without feeling discomfort or that the ladder will become less secure. So, let’s take a look at the best step ladder options to make getting your decorations down a breeze.


The platform step ladder

This ladder offers unrivalled stability when at height making it an ideal choice for going into your loft. Some of the decorations like your Christmas tree could be heavier to carry down so strength and stability are key features of a suitable ladder. No matter how much weight your decorations have the platform step ladder won’t wobble or give you any reason to doubt its balance when you’re on it. Some other notable features of this ladder which make it useful for climbing into your loft include

  •       Lightweight aluminium construction makes it easy to carry and handle
  •       Extra large non-slip top standing platform giving you peace of mind when getting far into the loft
  •       Handrail to provide extra support when carrying your decorations


Combination step ladders

These are slightly different from your standard step ladder, but the unique elements of combination ladders make them a great choice for getting into a loft. They can be configured in different ways to suit your needs at the time so you can adapt them for any DIY or other tasks you need to complete around the house. The ladder has an integrated stabiliser bar for maximum grip and auto locking clamps which hold it securely together and reduce any unwanted ‘bounce’ during climbing.

So, when you’re on the ladder you won’t have to worry about any of the mechanisms folding under the excess weight of the decorations. These elements make the ladder comfortable to use which is important when balancing a range of decorations climbing down from the loft.
