The ATTIC TENT – the low cost, easy to install solution to heat loss from your attic door
The Attic Tent is specifically designed to create an air barrier between your attic and the living space below. Suitable for most types of folding stairs the Attic Tent is an economical and practical solution to an old age problem of unnecessary air infiltration and heat loss.
Even if your attic is well insulated, the folding stairs that provide access can be a major source of heat loss. Often poorly sealed, they provide only a thin piece of plywood to keep the heated air from escaping.
Homeowners have attempted to remedy the age old problem of leaky trap door by placing insulation on top of it, but unfortunately it never solves the problem. This technique doesn't provide an airtight barrier and results in no reduction in the amount of air or heat loss. By using Attic Tent you solve this problem by significantly reducing heat loss and air infiltration. The Attic Tent is professionally packed, and comes fully assembled and ready to install.
