Insulation

Why Insulation is of Great Value in Your Building

An insulation R-value is the measurement of a material’s ability to stop heat and cold transfer.  No matter what a metal building’s usage, insulating it will be of value.  Because of the unique nature of a steel building, it requires a vapor barrier and radiant barrier. 

  • The summer heat (sun’s ray) on a steel surface will create extreme heat temperatures inside the building.
  • In addition, the cold winter temperatures are exaggerated by the metal roof and wall sheeting making it frigid inside.  Warm temperatures coming in contact with cool metal roof or walls create sweating (condensation). 

There are multiple types of insulation surfaces that are available in the market, each having its benefits and disadvantages based on climate conditions and building usage. 
Factory Steel Overstock has elected to offer the two most popular types of metal building insulation – reflective and fiberglass insulation.
