Skylark Electric Attic Stairs was established in 2012 by three visionary engineers with a combined 60 years of experience in construction, engineering, installation and customer service. Our idea was simple, develop an innovative product to give easy access to the most under utilised space in your home, your attic. The team quickly produced the first generation of the Skylark Fully Electric remote control attic stairs, which was instantly a hit within the industry and customers.
