A Message From Mark Tyrol, President of Battic Door:

Due to the recent IRC and IECC Code changes it may be difficult for Architects, Builders, Contractors, Remodelers, etc. to select an attic access solution for residential use that meets the new Building and Energy Codes:

2009 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, 2012 IECC and 2009, 2012 IRC. The 2012 International Green Construction Code conforms to the 2012 IECC.

These Code requirements mean the attic access pull down ladder or access hatch must now be insulated to the same level as the rest of the attic (minimum R-30).

Our Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover Insulation Kit is your attic access solution that meets these new Codes. It provides an air-sealed attic access that helps to increase your blower door test results.

It is important to note that R-5, R-10 attic ladders Do Not Meet Code - they must be insulated to minimum of R-30.

Also see our E-Z Hatch attic access door, a high performance attic access hatch that is an alternative to energy wasting pull down ladders. Thank you.

Beware of inferior products with zippers, magnets or Velcro that can leak and break, do not have insulation and cannot meet Code. Also beware of domes and tents that have no gaskets and do not provide an air seal. The Codes require gaskets and insulation - other products simply DO NOT MEET CODE!



By reducing the amount of heat and moisture leaking into your attic, the severity of ice dams and attic mold is greatly reduced!

Available in 22x54, 25x54, and 30x54 sizes to fit most pull down attic stairs - the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover pays for itself in months!

Fits between trusses, rails, and existing construction. Optional - add your own extra insulation to the sides if you have clearance.

Check out our recent customer feedback:
"I am a 65-yr old widow and was able to assemble and install the Best attic stairway insulation kit by myself in 15 min. Suffice it to say I am most pleased with this product." --Janice S.

"My husband and I are 77 and 78 years of age. Recently, to make things easier for ourselves, we had attic stairs installed. It's now much easier to get into our attic, but we lost the insulation factor and after these few hot, humid days the temperature in our second floor bedrooms was hard to take. We checked the internet and found on utube a set of instructions for building an enclosure which was certainly doable but would require trips to Home Depot and a great deal of measuring, cutting and probably cussing for a guesstimate of $50. Then out of curiosity, I tried "attic stairs/insulation" and Battic Door popped up with the perfect solution: a cover that was insulated, made to fit perfectly with no tools required, all for $99.50. The packages arrived within 3 days of our order. Enclosed were clear, well illustrated directions and we two completed the job in no time. We would recommend your product and operation to anyone. Thank you." --A. & N. Munroe

The Battic Door Attic Stair Cover is Easy To Install!

Pictures and Install Instructions Below


All our stair cover kits come with a durable strong stair cover. Here is over 350 lbs on top of the stair cover - lightweight and very strong and durable.

Our BEST kit includes stair cover, reflective shield, and R-50 insulation.

Reflective Aluminum Shield slips over stair cover and seals insulation. It also provides a reflective surface that saves energy and reflects away heat. The Reflective Aluminum Shield blocks up to 97% of radiant heat!

Easy to install. Assemble the stair cover and then bring the stair cover, reflective shield and R-50 insulation into the attic. Final assembly is performed in the attic as the finished kit will not fit through the stairs!

Drop the R-50 insulation into the reflective shield.

Then insert the stair cover into the reflective shield.

Stair cover is positioned on top of the weatherstrip seal as you leave the attic.

When you enter the attic just lift and move the stair cover out of the way. No hinges or zippers to get in your way or break!

The hinges clear the sides and top of the stair cover.

A stair cover must be used to seal attic stairs. Without a stair cover, there is nothing between you and the outdoors except the thin 1/8" piece of plywood! Energy Codes require these openings to be sealed and insulated - otherwise they are like an open skylight letting all your heat and AC just pour out of your house - wasting energy and costing you 24/7!

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • The Battic Door Attic Stair Cover is quickly and easily installed in minutes with no tools required!

  • Included in the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover kit is the attic stairway cover, a supply of weatherstripping and a set of installation instructions.

  • The attic stairway cover is self-locking - just fold it into shape! Self-locking tabs securely lock the ends of the cover into place - it just takes a minute to assemble!!

  • Test fit the Battic Door on the folding attic stairway frame. Then apply the adhesive-backed weatherstripping to the top of the folding attic stairway frame.

  • Then position the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover onto the weatherstripping as you leave the attic. The weatherstripping is as wide as the attic door frame - just let it fall into place and the stair cover embeds itself into the weatherstripping!

  • That's it - you're done!

  • The Battic Door Attic Stair Cover is designed to reduce drafts and save energy costs by reducing the transfer of air (drafts) between the conditioned house and the unconditioned attic. Insulation alone cannot do this - you need to prevent unwanted air leakage. And the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover does this quite well!!

  • However - to maximize the benefits of the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover, if desired, the insulating value of the Battic Door Attic Stair Cover can be increased by adding insulation to the top of the cover.
