Working with Owens Corning, Werner incorporated insulation that is built into
the structure of a standard Werner aluminum attic ladder. The new product
features the Owens Corning R-5 PINK^® insulation, within a 1" 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. Werner's Energy Seal Attic Ladder is five times more energy
efficient than standard wood attic ladder door systems.

"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 of Marketing at Werner Co. "Air

energy saving benefits. In addition, the gas struts make it easy to smoothly
open and close the ladder and the non-marring feet and slip-resistant steps
