Reach Barrier 3139 Reflective Air2 Attic Ladder Insulation Kit prevents cool air or heat from escaping the home at attic-access locations. The folding ladder which provides access to the attic can cause tremendous cooling and heat loss because there is only a thin piece of plywood between the living space and excessive heat or cold in the attic. Thermal imaging has shown hot air temperatures of 110°F or more around ladder access points. This insulation kit utilizes Reach Reflective Air2 which is comprised of two layers of sealed air laminated between two layers of durable reflective polyethylene. This gives Reflective Air2 the ability to retain its air longer and provides excellent insulation and sound reduction. Reflective Air2 meets all ASTM standards and complies with building code. Reach Barrier's reflective insulation products are one of the most versatile and energy efficient insulation products available. Radiant (reflective) barriers are installed in attics, walls, roof decking, and flooring. Most newly constructed homes contain radiant barrier insulation because of the proven effectiveness to decrease energy usage and cost by reducing summer heat gain and winter heat loss. Installing a radiant barrier may be the lowest-cost improvement that can produce the greatest overall reduction in energy usage and expense.
