R-Value 17 Reflective Insulation Features

Fuses the advantages of insulation with defenses against vapor, air, and radiant heat. This ensures your structure remains cool and moisture-free in the hotter months, and cozy and dry during the colder seasons.

Performs excellently in both warm and cool environments. Beyond being the premier choice for insulating metal buildings, it serves as an essential element in an all-encompassing residential insulation system.

  • Available High R-Value – 15.3 (white facing), 17 and 22 (reinforced reflective facing)
  • It is ICC-ES Recognized
  • R-Value unaffected by outside humidity
  • It prevents 97% of radiant transfer (the primary source of heat flow)
  • Is a vapor barrier
  • Prevents condensation
  • 19 dba contact noise reduction
  • 90 Celsius (194 F) contact temperature rating
  • UV resistance
  • Center is polyethylene foam instead of air bubbles.
  • Material does not allow mold or mildew
  • Does not provide for nesting or rodents, bugs or birds
  • Easy seals around nails (no leaks)
  • 100% recyclable virgin raw materials; therefore eco -friendly. 
  • Its surface keeps it airflow
  • Lighter weight; therefore, less cumbersome installation than fiberglass batt
  • Significant price savings over fiberglass batt and spay of same R-Value standard
  • Delivery times (fiberglass average delivery is 2 to 3 weeks vs. reflective is 7 to 10 days).

Reflective insulation primarily works by reflective radiant heat instead of absorbing like other insulation types. Here are 4 advantages:

  1. Reflective insulation saves your utilities cost because it reflect the radiant heat away from your structure.
  2. Most consider it the most accessible insulation to install. It is lightweight and can be easily cut with a knife. It is simply the perfect DIY insulation product.
  3. Reflective insulation is versatile. You can used it in steel structures, pole barns, attics, floors, around pipes, and craw spaces..
  4. It is a star for hot climates. If you are in a hot area, its reflective materials will reflect the sun’s radiant energy away from your structure.

R-Value 17 Reflective Insulation over Foam Board

Though Foam board insulation is an efficient way to buildings and homes, does come with its set of drawbacks.

  1. Chemical Ingredients and Environmental Factors: Foam board insulation is made from petrochemicals. In some cases it can contain toxic materials like flame retardants. These materials the quality of indoor air; therefore potentially chasing health issues. In addition, it disposal can have an adverse impact on the environment.
  2. Moisture Issues: If one doesn’t have a purchase a moisture -resistant foam board, moisture can infiltrate the foam board. This leads to water damage, mold and insulation performance.
  3. Potential Fire Haszard: Many foam boards are flammable; therefore when used inside must be covered with some kind of a fire-rated material. Needless to say, this adds cost.
  4. Its about price for most: It simply cost more for materials and installation. If money is not an issue, it definitely has it place for certain applications.

Why R-Value 17 Reflective Insulation over spray foam insulation

Though spray foam insulation offers superior air sealing, high R-values, and is applicable for some construction projects, we do not provide it because…

  1. It is too expensive
  2. It doesn’t protect your steel building from radiant heat transfer.
  3. It is labor extensive, so a professional is required for installation 
  4. A great deal of spray foam can release toxic fumes when it burns
