Attic Hatch Inc.
PO Box 6147 Bay 9 4006-60 AVE Stn Main, Innisfail, Alberta, T4G 1S8, Canada

By Stephen Murdoch During the past seven years, Mark Jejina and Jyri Laitinen have seen demand for their pre-built attic access assembly grow. The housing boom, accompanied by a similar upsurge in home renovation, has seen distributors from across Canada clamour to carry the Attic Hatch, a metal outer frame with weather- stripping that is drywalled into the ceiling, making the attic hatch frame totally air tight. Today, Attic Hatch is positioned for further growth. Sales continue to skyrocket and the pair fully expects that expansion to continue. Jejina, co-founder of Attic Hatch credits perseverance for the company s success. "We believed in our idea from day one and knew it would be catch-on across the country. There were early manufacturing and financial struggles but we overcame them. We stayed motivated and discovered where we wanted our business to be in five to ten years down the road," Jejina said. He also credits Attic Hatch s success to the partnerships established with key distributors across Canada. "Can-Cell Industries and Can-Save have remained strong advocates of our product. Choosing a reliable, full-service distributor is one of the most important decisions for a manufacturer and both have exceeded our expectations," he went on to say. The pre-fabricated Attic Hatch has carved a niche in the marketplace and continues to grow brand recognition across Canada. "Homeowners are looking for a product that is hassle free, high quality and is good for energy efficiency. We meet all of those requirements and are the only attic hatch that meets national building code requirements," Jejina explained. The issue of energy efficiency was always top of mind for Jejina and his partner when they were building a prototype. "The attic can account for up to five per cent of total energy loss. It s not uncommon for an energy auditor to look for solutions to ensure the attic is air tight." Everyone has been pushed back to the wall and entrepreneurs are no different. The road to success for Jejina and his team has been tiring and frustrating at times. "Like other companies that have come before us, we have our own set of unique challenges. One of the greatest challenges has been getting building inspectors to enforce the National Building Code. There are other attic hatches on the market that don t meet the requirements, yet, they continue to be installed. Even the conventional way of building the attic hatch doesn t meet the building code," Jejina said. In response to this, Jejina hopes to educate industry stakeholders of the importance of a system like the Attic Hatch. "The interaction between attic access and the indoor environment must be addressed. We will continue to educate Canadians on the benefits of having a common set of criteria and methods for assessing a product or system such as an attic hatch." The Innisfail-Alberta based company prides itself on its design capabilities. "Jyri and I were frustrated with the traditional building attic accesses and decided there had to be a better way. Most hatches are not insulated or simply have a small piece of fiberglass batting glued to the topside.
