The choice on how to insulate a steel or metal building and which product to use is widely debated. Moisture and air infiltration as well as site specific considerations need to be determined. Fiberglass insulation has proved largely ineffective in insulating these areas. InfraStop™ Steel and Metal Building Insulation System was designed to provide one effective material for all applications.
Common new construction and retrofit applications this system covers include the roof and walls as well as under slab if one is present in two interior colors, foil and white. “Foil insulation performs exceptionally well in these applications. One reason is its resistance to moisture. Steel and metal buildings are prone to condensation,” stated Nick Semon, owner of Insulation Stop.
“In heating seasons, radiant heat escapes through the walls and ceilings of your building. This can be especially wasteful if you are using an expensive fuel source. The foil insulation blocks this transfer of heat and reflects it back toward the interior space. The same concept applies in the other hotter months. The foil insulation blocks the transfer of radiant heat generated by the sun reflecting this heat before it enters your building. A radiant barrier, by definition blocks the transfer of radiant heat. Using reflective insulation in any application in this system is a great, low cost investment to reduce your heating costs.”
