R-Value 15 Reflective Insulation – Black Facing

We are now offering a new color option. Comparable in price to R-17 but with black vinyl backing, some customers prefer the traditional silver look for their metal building.  It slightly reduces the R-Value from 17 to 15 due to replacing one side of polyethylene backing and reflective foil with the alternative UV-resistant black facer.

You can now benefit from reflective “radiant barrier” insulation with a black face. If you prefer a black-finished look, a high R-15 value, and easy installation, this insulation is for you!

  1. Spray foam is costly
  2. It doesn’t have a radiant reflective barrier to protect your steel building from radiant heat transfer.
  3. It wasn’t designed for a layman to install. It is labor extensive, so a professional is required for installation
