Access to your attic may be via an attic door (attic panel, attic scuttle). All of these attic openings can waste energy at alarming rates. The attic opening is a rough carpentry opening that may have gaps and not be square which make the attic opening a prime location for energy leakage. Additionally, the attic insulation cannot fit into the attic opening without assistance because it is too wide. Attic insulation rolls are typically 24” wide while the opening is about 22”. This creates an attic insulation energy gap where the attic panel is poorly insulated or not insulated at all. For the attic to be insulated to meet the energy code the attic panel (attic door, attic scuttle) needs to be insulated to the same level as the attic space for optimum energy savings. The attic door (attic panel, attic scuttle) typically has attic insulation cut to fit the panel but as the video shows, attic insulation needs to be mechanically fit into the attic access door opening. Our attic insulation retainer is the only one made specifically for an attic door (attic panel, attic scuttle) and not for an attic stairway. No other attic access insulation method is faster or less expensive. No other attic access insulation product uses the existing insulation or the existing panel. Our product allows for 360 degree access to your attic while others restrict access due to bulky and high walls or swing-down panels that can restrict ladder placement. No other attic access insulation product requires only a screwdriver to install, other attic access products require two men, carpentry skills and cost a lot more.
