The LWP model is an insulated ladder made of pinewood. It allows access to otherwise unusable attic spaces without the hassle and clutter of an extension ladder. Each unit is equipped with a handrail which assists in climbing up and down the ladder. The 1 3/8in thick insulated sandwich door is beige on the inside and outside and has a lock mechanism for opening and closing the door. The hatch frame has a peripheral gasket creating a seal on the door when closed helping to reduce energy costs. Treads are fitted using dovetail joints for added durability. There is a space between the treads and the hatch door for more comfortable foot positioning onto the treads. Safety grooves are cut into the treads to prevent slipping. Steps do not protrude over the ladder surface.
