For the people in need of fabricated or modified accessibility in their homes, here is an idea. Apparently some folks over in London commissioned some designers to provide a better access point over the old ladder. The product was a permanent staircase that carries a modern design pitch.
The designers made use of welded and painted steel, a steel post and toughened glass to come up with the Loft Access London. Some minor modifications had to be done of course but in the end, the result was a more ideal finish, carrying modern interior designing looks that we see in common day made homes or living spaces.
