Like every building, metal buildings need to be well insulated in order to offer thermal comfort, energy savings and reduced noise levels. With Fi-Foil’s Retroshield® System, insulation for metal buildings has never been easier or more cost effective.
In hot, humid and mixed climates, many types of insulation are susceptible to mildew and eventual mold growth. When deciding which materials to use for a project, it’s important to ensure products not only provides short-term benefits, but also offer long-term advantages including protection.
While sufficient amounts of spray foam, fiberglass and cotton insulation can provide high R-values, they do not address radiant heat transfer. HY-Fi, a hybrid insulation system, works together with these and other traditional mass insulation to increase thermal resistance, add reflective insulation benefits and reduce the amount of insulation required.
