The E-Z Hatch® Locking Attic Access Door is an air-tight, high-performance, energy-efficient attic access scuttle door. It is R-50 or R-80, triple-gasketed, pre-finished, and fits in a 22 ½” x 30 ½” rough opening. The E-Z Hatch Attic Access Door Panel Hatch System is easy to install, easy to use, and features a highly insulated door, panel, scuttle hatch system that has an option that includes a secure 4 point locking latch and handles. It provides an air sealed, professional, high-quality, insulated access opening into the attic space. The E-Z Hatch Attic Door can be used for new construction and retrofit. The locking model can be used in knee walls as well as attic entry.
The E-Z Hatch Attic Door with Lock is the only scuttle/attic access hatch kit available that meets the 2015 and 2018 International Conservation Code (IECC) Section R402.2.4 and the 2015 and 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) n1102.2.4 and Energy Star Thermal Bypass requirements used in all 50 states.
Triple gaskets provide an airtight seal with the option of R-50 Insulation or R-80 insulation. The core of the door is 10 inches thick and made of Expanded Polystyrene foam that provides a better R-Value than fiberglass. The face of the door is glossed white, durable, and easy to clean. 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.
The top gasket of closed-cell insulation seals the top of the door. Gaskets 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 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 only 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. 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).
