Tempshield Insulation Values

Specs for Post Frame Construction

Roof

The thermal values for roof applications in post frame construction were derived by testing an assembly consisting of a corrugated metal exterior, 2" x 4" purlins, TempShield® Insulation, a 2" x 6" to represent the top cord of a truss, and 1/2" wafer board. The thermal values are for both exposed insulation and applications where the insulation is covered for fire codes.
