Attic Scuttle Holes Installation

Steps to install Attic Tent over scuttle hole:

  1. *Attach a piece of ½ inch plywood, measuring 24” by 35”, to the adjoining side of the access hole and along the floor joist in the attic as per drawing above. Seal any adjoining areas to insure a good seal. This will allow the required mounting surface for the Attic Tent.
  2. Position the Attic Tent over the scuttle hole with the zippers near the access.
  3. Using Attic Tent model “AT-1” (22”x54”x7”), staple the Attic Tent flange, around the access frame and extension of plywood. Apply a bead of caulk between the flange, access frame and extension of plywood to provide a tighter seal.

* Measurements may vary depending on access dimensions.

Note: The extra space provided by the extension of plywood will allow room for positioning & storing the access door when entering the attic. This will keep it free from carrying insulation back over the access area, and preventing the blown insulation around the access area from falling back into the home.

Wasted Energy

Heating and cooling inefficiencies are the major cause. In most cases, the prevention is simple and inexpensive.

The Attic Tent is an easy and affordable do-it-yourself solution for making your home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter and cool in the summer!

The Attic Tent also stops humidity from entering your home.

Windows & Storm Doors

Each year hundreds of thousands of homeowners pay large sums of money to purchase and install energy efficient windows and doors in their homes.

Yet, they overlook the area recognized as one of the home's hot spots for energy loss — The Attic Opening!

It isn't their fault; before the invention of the Attic Tent ® there was no practical solution.
