People with health issues or with restricted movement, find that by having a Skylark™ Electric Stairs, they can once again use their loft space as they were able to before.
This means a lot to us.
Many of us have become accustomed to our loft (attic) as a very necessary space for all manner of uses. As we grow older, we find a trip to the loft much more laborious, and also start to find it can become more and more dangerous. Having a Skylark™ Electric Stairs takes away any heavy lifting, or the requirement to reach over our head to pull down a rickety old ladder, which is the cause of so many injuries. 90,000 per year.

With your Skylark™, use your remote control to operate the stairs, when the ladder is fully extended to the floor you have a strong safe ladder to climb, which also has two safety hand rails to assist you.
Our customers regularly tell us of their surprise with the sturdy feel of the stairs when they climb it. We achieve this solid construction by assembling your stairs using very strong materials, such as beech hardwood for the ladder. The steel brackets are strengthened to 5mm thickness, compared to most other loft ladders who use 2mm or 3 mm brackets. This combination of quality wood and steel components provides a product which is resilient, versatile and hardwearing.
The high quality of the overall product makes it the perfect choice for many people who are converting their attic into rooms of all kinds (games room, bedroom, offices,etc.).
As with many homes finding the room for a permanent staircase is just not possible, without having to use up valuable space. As the Skylark™ can be retracted back up into the ceiling when the room above is not in use, it frees up the hallway or landing during the day.
If you are considering converting your loft space, it is worthwhile knowing that the space a permanent staircase will use, cannot be regained. If, for example, your loft room is just for guests when they are visiting (i.e. not all the time), it makes sense that a permanent staircase is going to take up space unnecessarily. If you plan to use the loft as your office or hobby room, while it’s not in use, you can close it off from the rest of the house.
By the way, the Skylark™ is locked when it’s closed; your remote is the key!
With health and safety being important in our places of work, and with a loft having valuable square footage just over your head, the Skylark™ makes it easy and safe for staff members to gain access. Because the Skylark’s™ motors do all of the work, anyone can use it at any time, even when there is a power outage. The Skylark™ contains a powerful battery backup so you will always be able to open and close the stairs.
Typical offices and commercial buildings tend to have high ceilings which make them unsuitable for manual loft ladders, but this is where the Skylark™ comes into its own.
No other loft ladder, apart from Skylark™, can make high ceilings so easy to access.
Staff have no heavy lifting to do, no reaching to pull down a manual loft ladder, no climbing steep ladders, or just badly constructed ladders. With the use of the remote control, the Skylark™ opens and unfolds the ladder ready for them to climb.
This removes the most hazardous task of going to the attic.
Skylark™ Electric Attic Stairs can be used in your House, Garage, for Loft conversion, Loft storage rooms, Offices, Commercial building, Schools, Churches, etc.
