Tempshield® Reflective Insulation Benefits
Metal buildings and pole barns are difficult to insulate because of the tremendous amounts of heat radiating through the corrugated roof in the summer and the tremendous amount radiant heat loss in the winter.
Using traditional mass insulation like foam is costly, and fiberglass batts will eventually compact and need to be replaced.
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation radiant barrier (commonly called “bubble insulation) reflects 95% of the radiant heat out in the summer and retains 95 percent of the radiant heat in the winter.
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation Controls Condensation
Condensation forms in metal buildings when two air masses with a significant temperature difference meet on a single surface. This can be a serious problem in a commercial metal building because the metal roof and walls conduct heat, providing little buffer between the two air temperatures. Traditional insulation like fiberglass often absorbs the moisture, which not only reduces the its insulation value, but can lead to mold and mildew. Tempshield® Reflective Insulation radiant barrier reduces condensation in metal buildings and pole barns by reflecting radiant heat and resisting conductive heat.
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation Offers a Cosmetic Choice
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation radiant barrier comes either with a silver foil on both sides or white on one side and silver on the other. The choice is purely cosmetic.
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation radiant barrier provides a bright, clean and modern look to any building. If your metal building or pole barn utilizes windows and skylights, then the reflective insulation will allow you to maximize the amount of light scattered throughout the building. If your metal building utilizes electric lighting, then reflective insulation can help ensure that you achieve the maximum efficiency at the lowest possible cost.
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation Meets Fire Codes
Tempshield® Reflective Insulation radiant barrier is a Class A, Class 1 product t that meets all current fire codes.
