A:  No, the cover does not have a 1 hour fire rating. The foam board for our covers does contain a class "A" flame retardant.

    Q:Can sides be trimmed for a more custom fit?
    by|Jul 18, 2020
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  If you are trimming the sides so they will fit closer to the "rough cut" of the attic opening there is no need with The Energy Guardian pull down ladder cover. Once the cover is installed it forms the pressure and thermal barrier (air sealing and insulating barrier) for the opening. Anything area inside the foot print of the cover is now part of the conditioned space (inside of the home). If you are trimming the cover due to obstructions in the attic the cover can be trimmed for those reasons. Hand saws and utility knives are acceptable tools for the job. Please contact our tech support team for any further questions (877-377-4674 x1). Thanks for your question.

        Fragile styrofoam
        This cover seems to make a big difference in the temperature of the room below the attic. I think it's working well. But I didn't realize from the pictures that it's pure styrofoam; I expected some kind of sturdy material. So I'm nervous that one clumsy move is going to break it. Also, I bought this together with a replacement attic ladder, both listed 22.5 in wide, but this cover was too narrow; the installer had to build a narrower frame around the top of the opening to put this on.

          Better than a foil cover with a zipper
          While looking online to find good insulation and air sealing products I stumbled on this. I ended up having a few questions and called energy guardian, ended up getting through to their voicemail but didn't leave a message since I figured I'd call back later. Shortly after I received a call from Dennis who made sure to returned missed calls. Rare customer service that is wonderful. Dennis filled me in on the company and install tips (use just a little glue and it goes a long way).

            Wrong dimensions. By a lot
            If you hit specifications it tells you what the dimensions should be. What I got was far more narrow. Lots of material i paid for that I didn't get. Now I got a big gap to cover. What I got was 22 5/8 wide NOT 33" . Even the inside dimension was supposed to be 27". 18 1/4 tall. 60 7/8 long

              Made from high quality foam. Heavier than styrofoam and appears to be durable enough for the application. It seals well and should make a big difference in the heating bill. My attic entrance is a little wonky but otherwise the installation is straightforward. You do have to glue some pieces together with the included adhesive. Pretty simple but you need to allow time for glue to dry.

              As a DIYer, I spent hours in my attic pulling out the old, dirty insulation, vacuuming, putting in foam baffles (what a pain!), air sealed the attic, and then putting down new insulation to go from something like R-9 to R-38 and then read a bunch of articles saying that if I didn't insulate the doorway, I was basically missing out on a lot of the need. This product offered a really high level of insulating value and is far easier to install than all of that insulation. It seems like a good value for what it is going to do. My package seemed to be missing the adhesive or maybe I lost it while unpacking the box (that was a lot of insulation...) so I called these guys--they were quite friendly and eager to have folks say something nice about their product. No, I didn't get anything for writing this, it just seemed easy to do when writing about something that does what it's supposed to do, is of value, and comes with good customer service.
