Product Overview

Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover is an energy-efficient pull down ladder insulating cover. New codes require the attic access to be insulated to the same level as the attic. The kit includes everything you need to cover, seal, and insulate your pull down ladder. The kit includes the rigid box (stair cover), rubber gasket, a reflective shield and R-50 fiberglass insulation to cover the top of box. Installs easily without tools. Insert the insulation into the reflective shield, and place the stair cover rigid box into the reflective shield covering the insulation. The shield holds the insulation to the box. Additional insulation (not included) may be added to the sides, or insulate the attic up to the sides of the stair cover kit. The stair cover fits between trusses. Available in 3 sizes to fit most any size or brand of pull down ladder: 22 in. x 54 in., 25 in. x 54 in. and 30 in. x 54 in. Also available without insulation (installer may add their own insulation to desired level).

How High is it above the stairs opening?

My attic stairs opening is very near the eaves and I only have 13 inches above the place where the insulation frame sits. Can the insulation be compressed down that low?
Asked by: Dick

25 in. x 54 in. R-50 Attic Stair Cover is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.

This is an expensive cover that unfortunately has a poorly designed cardboard frame that doesn't lock into place. We found the four locking cardboard tabs are too short to lock into their respective slots requiring the installer to reinforce the four cardboard connections with gaffer tape. Installation was quick and easy. Note that R-50 insulation is only on the top of the stair cover where the fiberglass insulation is approximately 16" thick. Sides of the cover are a R-5 or maybe R-7 reflective material. We will see how this holds up and insulates the stair opening during our hot Atlanta summers.

Outer reflective cover feels flimsy so there is no convenient way to handle the assembled product from upper side. A rather large flat area near attic door is needed to set aside the product after removing it when going up to attic. I get airtight feeling after placing the product on the attic door so I think it does its job. However, I am looking for more sturdy and easy-to-handle option for my 2nd attic door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Attic Stair Cover I was losing a lot of insulation from my attic through the pulldown staircase, and the second floor bedroom in which it was located was always much warmer in summer than the rest of the house. Contractors recommended a new staircase, at a cost of $2000 fully installed. However, I purchased this stair cover instead, and was able to install it myself (as a woman who lives alone) in about an hour. It has brought the temperature in the room to within about one degree of the adjacent room. I'm very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far SO Good...I think... It has been a month or two now since I've installed the product. It wasn't difficult to pull together and get it in the attic. I did it myself. The only issue I had is actually getting the insulation to stay in the box! Maybe I installed it wrong, but once the box is turned over and I'm exiting the attic, the insulation begins to fall onto my attic stairs. right now, the insulation just sits on my attic stairs. luckily, i have not had a reason to go up there. as far as a difference...i checked my electric usage from MAY 2015 to MAY 2016...there is about a 300 kwh difference. i cant be sure whether its bc i was home less or what...but obviously it has reduced quite a bit. i would recommend the product. it helped with the drafting issues of the heat or the cold coming in from the attic door. best of luck, yall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied Purchased when insulating my garage to cover the pull down steps. Arrived quickly and was assembled in less then 5 minutes. When put into place it fit perfectly. I was originally considering purchasing insulation and fabricating my own cover out of scrap wood, etc. but decided to go with this product. I am glad I did. It is comprised only of foam weather seal stuck to the staircase frame, a cardboard box with 2 batts of fiberglass insulation on top of it and covered in a reflective insulation. All the components could have been purchased separately for less money but headache saved, it was totally worth the extra couple bucks.
