"Bought these steps based on the previous reviews and can only agree with them.
We have a lantern roof on a new extension and it is 3.5m inside height at the apex. The roof traps flies and spiders find their way up there too so it needed cleaning after the summer.
The steps have a fabric strapping to brace them in the open position. On a shiny floor the steps splay a little due to the give in the straps. The feet move apart by 3 inches or so but at no time does this feel unsafe - its just something you notice as you climb them.
Whilst they feel solid when you are stood on the top platform the height combined with the hold on being at knee height meant I only used the platform when I had something to hold with one hand while working with the other.
They were bought for one purpose and worked well. Being so tall but light weight they are being stored in the loft as they are too big for the shed."
"Punted around for a set of steps on the internet and found these on Screwfix' website. Great price, light, sturdy and delivered FREE in less than 24 hours - brilliant and absolutely perfect for what I need."
"Ordered for next day delivery being long and would not fit in the car, delivered very efficiently by parcel force, unpacked them, tried for access to the loft safely, plus the garage storage. Found them light, robust and easy to handle, I cannot recommend them highly enough"
"Fully delighted with the quality and performance of the Lyte 8 tread aluminium stepladders. I purchased them to access my loft and clean my windows. They are safe and comfortable with a good amount of tread on the steps. Very light and easy to carry the top step is wide enough to feel safe on and the rubber feet grip well. I was also impressed with the service and prompt delivery. I had searched online and found the price and delivery at Scewfix to be far the best and I was not disappointed."
"Very pleased with the 8 tread stepladder. We bought it to do those hard to reach jobs like trimming tall bushes and trees - of which we have many; and also for decorating and numerous other household jobs which require the reach this gives us. It's very lightweight and portable, but sturdy enough to provide reliable and secure standing and stretching."
"It's new so I can't really comment on the reliability and durability, but it certainly feels solidly built for the price. Easy to use (never really had a difficult to use ladder!) Delivery was nice and prompt."
