Better Than Traditional Skylights!

Unlike a traditional skylight, room temperature is not compromised by a shaft breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions, reducing heat transfer. This makes illume more energy efficient adding to utility cost savings and less emissions. Also there is no need to regularly clean as illume removes common issues experienced with skylights such as mould, bugs and dust.

ILLUME™ - The Superior Skylight Alternative

How does illume work? illume Skylight Alternative creates harmony between internal and external lighting using Ambient Light Technologu (A.L.T). The system comes to life and adjusts itself as the sun makes its way across the sky. Just like traditional skylights, the light emitted by an illume system is variable based on the angle of sunlight and volume of cloud cover.

The skylight alternative that you can install in any room on any floor of any residential, commercial or public building. Unlike traditional skylights, you don’t require direct roof access to install an illume skylight alternative. You can place an illume panel in any internal space where additional daytime lighting is of benefit including basements, pantries, walk-in wardrobes, internal bathrooms and ground floor living rooms in multi-story floor-plans.

No heat transfer:
Unlike a traditional skylight, room temperature is not compromised by a shaft breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions. It means that an illume fitted space will retain heat in winter and repel heat in summer more efficiently than a shafted skylight system would thereby further adding to utility cost savings.

No leaks:
Fitting an illume requires no modification to the roof structure. With all roof materials remaining intact, there is no opportunity for water to pool or trickle down through the light diffuser.

Environmentally Friendly:
illume is entirely powered by solar energy with no mains power or batteries required. Just like a traditional skylight, illume brightens your space during the day reflecting external light conditions and sustainably reducing utility energy costs.

Attic Ladders - Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to install an Attic Ladder and floor installed?

Costs can vary depending on certain aspects such as the space you wish to utilise in your attic, the type of attic ladder that suits your needs and amount of storage space you want.


Most of our rooms are costed on a transparent square metre pricing structure so there are no hidden costs. A truss roof attracts a slightly higher rate, but we will advise of this right from the start.

Do you build complete lofts and living areas?

Sorry no, we only install storage areas and ladders to access your attic, which are completely different from living/habitable areas and cannot be used as such. 

Do you have a showroom?

As an owner operator I keep costs down by not having a showroom, however this means I have competitive pricing and a premium & honest service! 

I also have made a YouTube channel to help demonstrate the wide range of premium ladders I sell, check it out by clicking.

I have ducted air conditioning - can this we worked around?

Yes, in most cases we can re-route the ducting if required. This is a common task as the ducting is most often run on a direct route to the outlet running across the path of the most usable storage area. 

If I only have a small roof, can I still use it as storage?

If you can crawl comfortably in your attic, you’ll be able to comfortable fit things in your attic! With flooring installation available, your attic space can be utilised even if it is small.

How long does it take to install an attic ladder?

I install the attic ladder the same day I arrive. Within 2 weeks of quoting the job I will be at your home installing the attic ladder. Have peace of mind that when I’m finished with the installation, I’ll leave your home just as clean as when I arrived!

What are the ladders made of?

Our Attic Ladders range from timber ladders to full aluminium ladders. The quality of our ladders are guaranteed for your peace of mind! 

Is my existing roof structure strong enough?

Yes, depending on the weight. We build a sub frame on top of your existing ceiling joists upon which we securely screw down our flooring which is engineer approved to hold 75 kg per square metre, plus your own weight. 

Do you charge to come to my house and quote?

An appraisal is completely free and without obligation. Most of the time I’m also able to quote over the phone if provided with a clear picture! However sometimes I need to visit the site in person, completely free of charge.

    Eion came an installed an ultimate Kimberley attic ladder and flooring in my roof. We are so happy with the end result. The self closing ladder made it so easy when having a high ceiling. Best decision we could have made to clear out the house. Eoin was extremely helpful from when I called him threw to installation ,he explained the whole process which made us very comfortable.

    We loved Eoin’s work. He installed 2 Illume solar powered skylights to brighten up our days, a clever attic ladder and floor and a solar powered roof fan which is really cool. He is a genuine, hard-working, reliable guy who knows what works. He provides real value for money and we wholeheartedly recommend him.

    Thank you Owen for a great installation of our attic stairs in the garage. Wished we had thought to do this sooner, rather than trying to lift myself through the manhole I think all houses should be built with them in. Very happy with everything, thank you !

    Absolutely stoked with the attic storage Eoin built and installed. He got the job done in the exact time he said and highly impressed with the quality of his work. Was looking for a storage solution that didn't require structural changes for more room or building a separate structure altogether. When I engaged Attic Ladders and Floors, Eoin helped me clearly understand possible options for my storage needs, and during the quote, went through ways to make it happen, pointing out what was required for the job. Thank you Eoin for bringing open space back into my house and workshop again with attic storage!

    Had such a great experience dealing with Eoin. We had a really old attic ladder that needed to be fixed and he kindly came over to have a look at it and even taught us how to repair it in future. Extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend his services

    Thank you Eoin for the great job you done for us. I would highly recommend Attic Ladders and Flooring Qld. He recently installed a attic ladder for us to free up storage at our home and also recommended a solar vent for the attic space which makes a difference not just in the attic space but also throughout the whole house. Eoin was very friendly, honest and cheaper than others quotes we had been given.

    I rang Eoin today to organise a repair or a replacement of my currently old but functional attic ladder. A visiting tradesman had bent it and it would no longer close. Eoin took me through the options and offered to drop by on his way to another job for a look to see what best to do. I asked if I should send some photos to help him out in preparation for the repairs/replacement. I sent them through and whilst talking to him, he proceeded to tell me how to fix my problem from the pictures over the phone. He said ring me back if it doesn’t work and I will come as arranged. So 10 minutes later, attic ladder all fixed and no need for repair or replacement. Eoin did himself out of a job, by being a decent bloke. I can’t speak to his work, but if it matches his integrity and decency, it will be top notch. The minute my current arrangement actually breaks, he is the only person I will call. Give him a ring, you won’t regret it.

    So happy with our new attic storage area. We had been struggling for years with for storage. After a quote from eoin we had him around to install a Kimberley attic ladder and storage flooring. We couldn't be happier with the job he done and how he did a few extra bits of work at no charge. Highly recommended

    After we recently bought a house the first thing we had an issue with was lack of storage. After we saw eoin on facebook we had him around for a quote. We were very happy with how he explained the whole process. His quote was very reasonable and we are so happy with the finished result

    I did alot of research and chose Owen over the competition due to his vast knowledge on various solar vent products, attention to detail, and excellent service. He is 2nd to none - highly recommended. Also, the solar vent works fabulous - so much heat is removed from the roof cavity, we can run our A/C less often.

    Eoin installed an attic ladder for me, a difficult install in an old Queenslander with 3.5m ceilings. Communication before the install was fantastic. Eoin was always punctual and did a professional and tidy install. Couldn't be happier with the result. Very happy to recommend Attic Ladders and Floors.

    STOP! If you are reading this that means you are looking for an attic ladder and you have found your company. We had Eoin install an attic ladder in our townhome and could not be happier with our decision, what more can you ask for than a tradie who quotes a fair price, do the work on time with absolutely no fuss or mess and leaves the site cleaner than he found it. Will definitely use Eoin again when we look at installing a solar roof ventilator.
