A Message From Mark Tyrol, President of Battic Door:
Due to the recent IRC and IECC Code changes it may be difficult for Architects, Builders, Contractors, Remodelers, etc. to select an attic access solution for residential use that meets the new Building and Energy Codes:
2009 IECC Section 402.2.3 and 2009 IRC Section N1102.2.3 and 2012 IECC Section R402.2.4 reads: "Access hatches and doors. Access doors from conditioned spaces to unconditioned spaces (e.g., attics and crawl spaces) shall be weatherstripped and insulated to a level equivalent to the insulation on the surrounding surfaces." Energy Star Version 3 requirements conform with the 2009, 2012 IECC and 2009, 2012 IRC. The 2012 International Green Construction Code conforms to the 2012 IECC.
These Code requirements mean the attic access pull down ladder or access hatch must now be insulated to the same level as the rest of the attic (minimum R-30).
The E-Z Hatch is your attic access solution that meets these new Codes. It is a high performance attic access hatch that is an alternative to energy wasting pull down ladders. It provides an air-sealed attic access that helps to increase your blower door test results.
It is important to note that R-5, R-10 attic ladders Do Not Meet Code - they must be insulated to minimum of R-30.
E-Z Hatch attic access doors are provided with non-compressible insulation and comply with Guidelines prepared by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for use in Energy Efficiency Programs.
