Stira Folding Attic Stairs Ltd was founded in 1982 by Michael Burke through the experience of constantly having to repair imported attic stairs which didn’t hold the high quality craftsmanship shown in the Stira brand today. It was through this experience that Stira was born!
‘’When Michael had the design of the product ready he bought an old hay barn from his parents and began manufacturing the stairs on a small scale. The stairs was an immediate success in his local county Galway. In the first few years of the business little was spent on advertising, instead Stira relied on customers referring the friends and family to us, To this day we still get a large portion of our sales through referral and reputation.’’
Today, Stira is still the leading manufacturer of high quality, lasting folding attic stairs in the Irish and U.K. market. Stira began to look towards international standards in manufacturing and invested a lot of money into redesigning the factory, and training employees in new practices. This process took Stira the best part of 10 years and we are now members of the BSI and one of the only attic stairs/loft ladders in the world to be accepted.
What makes Stira different from other similar brands and manufacturers is simple, they design, engineer and product their components in their Irish warehouse by highly trained experts in their field. Each product is built to last and stands the test of time, day in, day out. To date the company has fitted over 80,000 units across the U.K. and Ireland. Their fantastic reputation has positioned the brand as the leading brand for folding attic stairs in the UK and Ireland.
The company prides themselves on the use of sustainable wood for its manufacturing process which they hold as one of their key company values.
Each Stira is covered by warranty and holds a ten-year guarantee of high quality standard. Each Stira is installed by our expert fitters with a friendly face, their team prides themselves on the customer service they provide when in a customer’s home, being clean and respectful of the home is for their upmost importance.
