Werner brings attic ladder to Home Depot
Greenville, Pa.-based Werner Co. is bringing its aluminum Energy Seal Attic Ladder to Home Depot on an exclusive basis.
The new product features the Owens Corning R-5 PINK insulation, within a 1-in. thick door structure. The aluminum attic ladder also features weather stripping around the frame that eliminates 60% of air leakage by creating a tight seal when the door is closed, according to the manufacturer.
“In our research, homeowners have communicated the importance of energy efficiency and their desire to find easy ways to minimize wasted energy and identify cost savings,” said Chris Filardi, VP marketing at Werner Co. “Air leakage through attic openings is a common issue; this is why we developed the Energy Seal Attic Ladder with integrated insulation and weather stripping, to help seal in warm or cool air and provide short- and long-term benefits for homeowners.”
It is now available online and at 428 Home Depot stores across the country. The pricing for the attic ladder is $199.
