The main source of pride for us at Skylark™ Electric Attic Stairs is the ease and safety that our electric stairs conveys to the user. When home or workplace customers talk to us, they are delighted with the safety and ease of use the Skylark™ Electric Attic Stairs provides.
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.
