Metal Building Reflective Insulation

Product:

  • Series 2520 Double Bubble Foil Insulation
  • rFOILTM Reflective Insulation is a Double Bubble layer of Polyethylene bubbles bonded to and sandwiched between a radiant barrier metalized foil and white polyethylene sheet
  • rFOILTM is specifically designed to control heat gain or loss, and to prevent interior condensation in all types of metal and metal-clad buildings
  • rFOILTM meets ASTM E84-09 Fire Test Class 1 / Class A testing
  • Square edge, tab 1 side, tab 2 sides, QuickSeam adhesive strip
  • Thickness: 5/16” (double)
  • Available sizes:
    • 6’ x 125’
    • 8’ x 125’

Features:

  • Reflective metalized aluminum surface facing – lowers heating/cooling costs
  •  Blocks 97% of radiant heat transfer
  •  Multi-layer bubble core – does not retain moisture or mould, superior puncture resistance
  •  White interior facing option – easy to clean, safe, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic
  •  Practical Tab/Edge options – improves vapour-sealing efforts, UV-resistant
  •  QuickSeam (adhesive tape on tab) – various tab options ensure continuous vapour and condensation barrier

Applications:

  • Pre-engineered steel buildings, post frame / pole barns, agricultural buildings, residential metal roofs, mini-storage units and livestock confinement

Notes:

  • Cannot be used under concrete
  •  Install with white side facing down

Concrete Underpad Poly Barrier Foil Insulation

Concrete Underpad Poly Barrier Foil Insulation diagram

Product:

  • Series 4320 Double Bubble Concrete Foil Insulation with clear poly on reverse side
  • rFOILTM Concrete Underpad is an outstanding Reflective Insulation and puncture-resistant Vapour Barrier
  • rFOILTM meets ASTM E84-09 Fire Test Class 1 / Class A testing.
  • rFOILTM Concrete Underpad provides exceptional thermal value and a strong, permanent Vapour and Radon Barrier (7 mil)
  • Square edge, tab 1 side, tab 2 sides, Quick Seam adhesive strip
  • Thickness: 5/16” (double)
  • Available sizes:
    • 6’ x 125’
  • White Poly Tape, 2” x 150’ Roll

Features:

  • Reflective metalized aluminum facing (installed face down) – redirects radiant heat energy back to living area and provides a faster reaction time for Radiant Floor heating
  • Multi-layer 7 mil bubble core – provides a continuous Thermal Break below the slab, strong puncture resistance and tear strength. Outstanding Vapour and Radon Barrier will also insulate the edge-slab and outside of foundation
  • Lightweight flexible materials – just unroll, overlap and tape the seams.
    • Ideal for edge-slab insulation and expansion joints;
    • Easily folds up at perimeter footing

Applications:

  • Insulating under concrete slabs, beneath concrete over-pours, edge-slabs and expansion joints
  • Install with clear Poly side facing up
