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-50, 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.

Hi Ed, The regular R-50 EZ Hatch will not work in a vertical application. However, the Deluxe (locking) R-50 EZ Hatch will work in a vertical application.

What is the weight of this Access Door?

There is a lightweight hard-foam the is part of the access hatch. This insulates effectively. The entire system is sturdy, as long as you fasten it securely to the attic beams. There are no joints at the corners, the molding that you see is one continuous surface. As to specifically, how heavy the Access Door is, it is not heavy to work with. Given enough strength to place spacers, fasten clamps and drive screws with a power drill. With only one person doing the install, it is more difficult to get the panel up to the ceiling opening. It has been a couple of years since I installed the hatch, perhaps 20 lbs?

The description says it fits into a rough opening of 22.5 in. x 30.5 in. Yet, the specs say 13x14...

Answer

The E-Z Hatch access door is unrated and meets IRC and IECC Code requirements. Check with your local Code official for acceptance if your project requires a rated door. It may be acceptable to add layer of sheetrock to the door face.

This was the second attic access unit I have purchased. These units are well constructed, they look great, and add insulated door access where usually there is none. These are great products.

The installer had no problem installing the product. I am happy with it. The original builder of the home simply had a piece of drywall as the attic hatch. The installer was impressed with the product and liked the sealed gasket.
