Fire Rated Attic Ladder

Do you have a need for a one hour fire rated attic ladder? If so, you will be limited on your attic ladder purchase. You can choose from multiple brands like Fakro and American Stairways (formerly Bessler Stairways)

Why purchase a fire rated attic ladder?

Sometimes, local building codes require that your attic ladder be fire rated. Always check with your local building code and ordinances. A good rule of thumb is that if your ceiling meets a fire requirement then your attic ladder should match. Bessler stairways makes a 20 minute fire rated attic ladder and a one hour rated drop down ladder.

Who makes attic ladders with fire resistance?

The BE-119 attic stair meets a one hour requirement. Bessler also manufactures the Model 655 attic ladder which can be finished with a fire resistance of up to 20 minutes. This attic ladder has an optional add that meets resistant requirements of 20 minutes. 

Two other manufacturers of fire resistant attic ladders are Fakro and Rainbow. Rainbow manufactures the Protech (30 minute fire rating) and the Protech 12 (75 minute fire rating) attic ladders.
