Attic Scuttle Holes Installation
Steps to install Attic Tent over scuttle hole:
- *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.
- Position the Attic Tent over the scuttle hole with the zippers near the access.
- 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.
