Converting this warehouse space in a metal building to a comfortable office environment,
required increased Energy Efficiency through added insulation.
After determining this client’s needs to increase the insulation without a lot of added cost, Gale Insulation of Brooksville recommended Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System. Designed specifically for retrofitting existing metal buildings. Using their RBI Shield™ reflective bubble insulation and patented Clip and Pin components, the insulation attaches right to the bottom of the metal purlins.
The clean, finished appearance and Class A fire rating allow this insulation to be left exposed; And it is offered in 3 different facings. The client selected reflective/white to help direct the light downward and improve the lighting in the work area. The additional R-Value achieved with the RetroShield® System and reflective /white facing, when attached to the bottom of a 6-8” purlin is R-12.
