How to Get It

Product Overview

Make your attic access energy efficient with the E-Z Hatch Deluxe R-42 Attic Access Door. It provides an air-tight, high-performance scuttle door that is more energy efficient than pull down ladders. The kit includes a wood frame, preinstalled trim, and an insulating door. It is R-42, triple-gasketed, pre-finished and fits into a 22.5 in. x 30.5 in. rough opening. New code requirements state that the attic access pull down ladder or access hatch must be insulated to the same level as the rest of the attic (minimum of R-30 to R-49). Pull down attic ladders no longer meet code unless insulated to minimum of R-30. E-Z hatch is the alternative. A step ladder provides attic access.

My circa 1979 house had the most awful attic access door--an opaque plastic panel that doubled as a hall light. Far more than I realized, the old attic access door leaked hot air in the summer and cold air in the winter. This simple, elegant attic access hatch solved that problem big time. It took a handyman an hour or so to install and the final result looks handsome.

Didn't want to take the time to build this myself. My attic entrance was in the hallway which forever drove me crazy. So it's remodel time and this was on the list. I moved it into the soon to be gym. As others have noted it isn't very flush to the ceiling. I used a ladder and a 2x4 to add more pressure and get it a much tighter fit. Doing so did crack the seams just a bit. But it just needs a small bead of caulk now. Very well built.

Cool Concept that works
Why didn't somebody think of this earlier? Clean Installation, went well - didn't have prior attic access. Blends nicely, no need to paint and you would not know it was there - loved the idea of the R42 push open hatch - does not cause the slightest change in air temp or draft.

Easy to install. Way overpriced for what you get. The molding of the frame is nice but the door itself is just a huge block of styrofoam attached to a piece of plastic. But it looks nice when installed.

Installed easily and looks very nice. Seems very well built. No need to paint since the white finish already looked great.
