Description

Stop energy loss through your attic stairwell with Draft Cap, the patented thermal barrier that covers your attic stair opening to prevent air flow. According to the Department of Energy, the entryway to your attic is the one of the largest gaps in your home’s insulation. In fact, that gap causes such a deficiency in the thermal barrier between your attic and living area that the National Building Energy Code has adopted guidelines for insulating the opening. Until now, no simple solution has existed for homeowners and contractors to comply. Draft Cap offers a do-it-yourself solution, with a durable polystyrene foam product that simply sits over the opening to your attic – reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. This simple insulation solution has an R-value of 11 and can save you on average $19/month in heating and cooling costs.The Draft Cap is also ENERGY STAR certified, meets all local and federal building codes for attic access panel insulation, and meets UL-94HF-1 specifications for flammability. With the money you will save on your energy bills, the Draft Cap attic entry insulator will pay for itself very quickly! Assembly requires no tools and takes less than 5 minutes.To check if Draft Cap will fit your attic, simply pull the attic hatch down so that it is roughly at a 45 degree angle. Then step around the back side of the door and measure just the plywood door or panel (not the molding.) If this measurement is in the vicinity of 24″ x 52″, then you have a standard-size pull-down stair unit and Draft Cap will surely fit! Underside clearance is 7-7/8″. Weight is approximately 8 lbs. Has a wall thickness of 2-3/4″.
