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.

If your project includes pull down ladders see our Battic Door R-50 Attic Stair Cover kits. Thank you.

The E-Z Hatch is an energy efficient alternative to pull down attic ladders. Builders, remodelers, home owners prefer the E-Z Hatch. It is far more energy efficient and less expensive than a pull down ladder + insulated cover. Easy attic access — use a sturdy step ladder for attic entry.

Please note: Allow 2 ft clearance above ceiling where the E-Z Hatch will be installed. The door is 12" tall and needs a total of 2 ft clearance so the roof joists will not block the door.

Note: When mechanical equipment is installed in attic a larger door is often required. We will be introducing a larger door with a 24×30 in. clear opening — please email us with your size requirements, and check back for more info and availability.

We also offer a 30×54 R-50+ Attic Stair Cover for 30×54 pull down ladders that are often used when a large attic access is required.

The E-Z Hatch Attic Access Scuttle Door Panel Hatch System is an easy to install, easy to use, highly insulated door, panel, scuttle hatch system that installs in minutes and provides an air sealed, professional, high-quality, insulated access opening into the attic space.

Triple gaskets provide an air tight seal!

The core of the door is 10 thick and made of Expanded Polystyrene foam that provides a greater R-Value per inch than fiberglass.

The face of the door is gloss white, durable, and easy to clean.

The top gasket of closed cell insulation seals the top of the door. The gasket is fire rated per ASTM E84 for flame spread (FSI) 25 or less, smoke developed (SDI) 50 or less, (required by Code for exposed insulation) and meets code requirements.

The lightweight door weighs 10 pounds, and lifts up and out of the way for easy attic access.

No hinges — The door is designed to prevent interference with the roof joists.

Triple pre-installed weatherstrip gaskets ensure an air tight seal. Gasketing provided where the trim meets the ceiling, where the face of the door meets the trim, and where the top of the door meets the frame.

The lightweight door opens with little effort, allowing easy entry into your attic space. The finished face on the door fits tightly into the weatherstrip on the trim when the door closes.

Perfect for use with any type of attic insulation, including blown-in insulation. The 12 in. tall wood frame acts as an insulation dam, which holds the insulation back from the opening, and takes the mess out of getting into your attic space.

Sized to fit either between roof trusses 24 on-center, or between ceiling joists 16 o.c. with minimal carpentry required (cut one joist and add headers).

Whether in new construction or retrofit, the unit can be installed in minutes with only a utility knife and a screwdriver.

Prefinished gloss white trim and door standard.
