Attic Stair Insulator Cover - R-50+

 

Attic Stair Insulator Cover - R-50+

Due to recent Code changes it may be difficult for architects, builders, specifiers, contractors to select an attic access solution that Meets the New Building and Energy Codes:

2009 and 2012 IECC Section 402.2.3 and 2009 IRC Section N1102.2.3 and 2012 IECC Section R402.2.4 reads: "Access hatches and doors. Access doors from conditioned spaces to unconditioned spaces (e.g., attics and crawl spaces) shall be weatherstripped and insulated to a level equivalent to the insulation on the surrounding surfaces." Energy Star Version 3 requirements conform with the 2009 IECC and 2009 IRC. The 2012 International Green Construction Code conforms to the 2012 IECC.

This means the attic access must now be insulated to the same level as the rest of the attic (R-30+).

Battic Door offers two attic access solutions that meet these new Codes and provide solutions.

  • E-Z Hatch R-42 Attic Access Door. This is an air-tight, high-performance, energy-efficient attic access scuttle door. It is R-42, triple-gasketed, pre-finished, and provides a 22x30” access opening. The E-Z Hatch is an energy efficient alternative to energy wasting attic pull down ladders, and exceeds all Code requirements. Deluxe version is provided with a 4-point lock and handles for multi-family, shared attics, rentals, knee walls, or anywhere security is desired. The lock may be keyed alike or different. Starting at $199, the cost of this attic access door is less than the cost of a pull down ladder and the Code required insulated cover.
  • Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover. R-5 and R-10 pull down attic ladders Do Not Meet Code. An insulated stair cover kit is now required to meet Code. Battic Door offers an energy-efficient pull down ladder cover. The kit includes a stair cover box, air selaing gasket, along with a reflective shield. The installer provides the desired amount of fiberglass insulation (R-50+) into the reflective shield, and the box is placed into the reflective shield covering the insulation. The shield holds the insulation to the box. The stair cover fits between trusses. Available 22x54, 25x54 and 30x54 sizes with prices starting at $59.
Attic Stair Insulator Cover - R-50+ is the only stair cover kit available that meets the International Energy Conservation Code - used in all 50 states and most jurisdictions! Section 403.2.3 Access hatches and doors: "Access doors from conditioned spaces to unconditioned spaces (e.g., attics and crawl spaces) shall be weatherstripped and insulated to a level equivalent to the insulation on the surrounding surfaces."

Highest insulation of ANY kit available. The Original! The Best! Preferred by Contractors!

Fastest and easiest installation - NO TOOLS!
