Will this fit a house fan?

Asked by Ray December 30, 2019
1
Answer

If fan install is of issue, Get dimensions of fan. If round or cylinder shaped fan, diameter would be important. Compare with opening of hatch and height above opening to ensure you can get fan through to install. If really close, fabricate cardboard box with dimensions of fan product to see if you can fit through hatch. Generally vent fan units should fit. Hope this helps.

Is this attic hatch fireproof? If not, do you sell one that is fireproof?

Answers

This product is not fireproof, but does have a flame retardant added to it. This flame retardant gives it an ignition temperature of 698 degrees F. This is higher ignition temperature than most wood material found in construction today.

Asked by PeeArrow November 17, 2018

Answers

The raised walls were intended to keep insulation from falling through the opening. I did not use these. Instead, i just glued a piece of Fiberglass batt insulation on top of the block. This provided the same outcome.

Not the easiest install and easily damaged. Not made for traffic. Better to build Your own box and adhere foam to box out.

This product designed to provide attic access at the same time provide adequate insulation through and around the access hole. I I checked the “would not recommend” box, but I would revise that if you had an attic that you did not store things and almost “never” entered. Then, I would say this product would be a good fit. On the other hand, as in my situation, I make frequent trips into the attic space above my shop. This product is made of very thick composite styrofoam and is susceptible to damage through repeated entries and exits. The pieces are meant to fit together with adhesive strips which again through repeated use will in my opinion not hold up. Hope this helps.

Great Attic Entrance Cover
Simple cover, easy to install. I really liked that it had a barrier to install around the opening up in the attic. It will keep insulation from falling into my home. I highly recommend the product.
