Insulate your attic door easily and
inexpensively in order to save money on your heating and cooling bill.
Even if your attic is well insulated, the folding ladder access hatch to your
attic can still be causing a large amount of heat and cooling loss, which is
costing you money. In most instances attic ladders only have a thin
piece of plywood between your living space and the extreme temperatures in your
attic. Testing using thermal imaging has shown that it is not unusual to record
hot air temperatures of 110°F or more leaking in around attic ladders in the
heat of summer.
Installing a Reach Attic Ladder Insulation Kit can stop this from happening easily and inexpensively.
Each Attic insulation kit is made from Reach Barriers Reflective Airē Insulation which is comprised of two layers of sealed air laminated between two layers of durable reflective polyethylene providing the ultimate in radiant heat protection.
Reach Barriers Reflective Airē is completely made in the USA and is subjected to internal and third-party testing to make certain it is able to withstand the most aggressive environmental conditions such as high heat and humidity. Reach Barriers Reflective Airē meets all ASTM standards and complies with building codes.
Using this attic ladder insulation cover is an extremely effective way to insulate your attic hatch and is easy to install. It is very lightweight so there isn't any heavy insulation to lift into the attic and no zipper to struggle with like some other insulation kits.
