What is Radiant Barrier?

Radiant Barrier is an insulation material that reflects heat entering or leaving a home, building, shipping container, apparel or packaging. Heat gravitates toward cold, but instead of absorbing heat and delaying this process like traditional foam or fiberglass, Radiant Barrier reflects heat back to its source.

Radiant Barrier's effectiveness is not measured by R-value like traditional insulation. R-value measures how long it takes heat to pass through a material or insulation. Radiant Barrier's effectiveness is measured by reflectivity. Radiant Barrier reflects 95 to 97 percent of the radiant heat.

We manufacture three products that incorporate radiant barrier:

  • Super R® - a thin sheet Radiant Barrier reflective insulation, recommended for attic and house wrap applications. Ag-Barrier®, Deck Barrier® and RF Shielding are variations of Super R®.
  • Tempshield® - a Reflective "Bubble" Insulation Radiant Barrier recommended for metal buildings, walls, basements, crawl spaces and packaging.
  • Temptrol® - a metalized cloth Radiant Barrier reflective insulation fabric designed for clothing, curtains, and tents.

With over 35 years of experience, our technical experts can recommend one of our Radiant Barrier reflective insulation products for almost any residential or commercial application. Our strength is outstanding customer service. When you call, you will speak to a live individual.
