This attic hatch does have fold-out steps inside...
It would be great to put a layer of insulation at the level A:
unfortunately, once the steps triple-fold and you put the hatch up,
the folded steps come up an extra at least a foot .. the height of "B" or more.
(Notice I simply lay some insulation panels there - the white stuff with the bar code - when the steps fold up and you shut the hatch, those panels are pushed way up high: it's largely useless, of course air just flows in the sides.)
the literal hatch is 52x24,
the surrounds above are about 29x28.
Is there something for this?
i thought of at least carefully fitting insulation inside the gaps in the ladder:
my guess is that would probably be useless - experts ??
I guess a follow up question is are solutions like this integrated cover rubbish cheap solutions, or ok ?
(I notice some are simply "boxes" that just "sit on" the attic floor - seems useless. that one pins in at least.)
As a curiosity for anyone reading. Notice (image 2) I simply threw some (three layers) of insulating panel up there, resting above the ladder. This is totally useless because, when you fold up the ladder, it lifts them in the air many inches. So TBC there is a huge air gap around the sides, it is not at all sealed. Very bizarrely even this crappy measure drastically cut the heat reaching the outside of the hatch!!!!
