The Department of Energy describes
the attic access as a big hole representing one of the biggest
deficiencies in thermal barrier between the attic and living areas.
As a result, the national building energy code has adopted

has existed for contractors and homeowners to comply. Draft Cap
offers a solution, with an easy do-it-yourself product that sits

way to satisfy building codes, and reduce heat loss in the winter
and heat gain in the summer.
