This 25" x 54" x 11" insulating stair cover is a piece of the puzzle of weatherizing your home. It slows air transfer from your attic to your home, and stops insulation from falling into your home when the attic is accessed. Fits most openings up to 25"x54". We manufacturer this cover a few inches larger than needed to accommodate building tolerances. If your opening is too small, simply fold the edge over and staple for an airtight seal. Easy access to your attic with a zipper. Easy to install, all you need is a staple gun. You can use caulk around the edges for an extra seal if you like, but its not necessary. Fits most openings up to 25"x54". We manufacturer this cover a few inches larger than needed to accommodate building tolerances. If your opening is too small, simply fold the edge over and staple for an airtight seal.

Since I had my doubts about how effective this unit is, I decided to place a plastic sheet on top of this cover. Not to my surprise, I did find condensation between the cover and plastic sheet; proving that I was still loosing a good amount of warm air through the attic.
1) the attic ladder insulating cover was installed with staples. I then caulked the cover to the attic entrance. I am fairly certain the cover was installed correctly.
2) weather stripping around attic door isn't the best as the door doesn't sit completely flush. Thus reason I was hoping for something air tight above the door.
3) rough opening is air tight as it has been sealed with spray foam. Corners and seams were then caulked.
4) rug directly below the attic door is still much colder than any other part of the second floor.
What you need in your attic in summer is two things: LOTS OF VENTILATION. (It's very common to need to add a couple of powerful FANS, directed at any vents in the attic-roof, to blow hot air out.)
And secondly, you need to insulate the ATTIC DOOR. To stop heat pouring down through it.
Of course, you could purchase and have installed an expensive modern "insulated attic door" for some thousands, but in the vast majority of cases this simple product seems to be a fantastic fix.
Using an infrared thermometer, I measured AT LEAST 15 DEGREES reduction in heat, just by installing this. It largely solved the problem single-handed.
NOTE - after stapling this cover to the wood around the hatch. It's essential that you get some "aluminium tape", insulating tape - it will cost 5 to 15 bucks to buy a roll. Get as wide a roll as you can get. Completely seal the join (on the "ABOVE" side), to stop hot air leaking in. It's possible experts could do this with a tube of sealant, but it is tremendously easier to just stick insulating tape along it.
(I suggest to this excellent company, they should throw in a short role of inexpensive aluminium tape, as a bonus - since you must tape it when you install.)
