Owner: BOYS & GIRLS CLUB, Washington, DC
Insulation Contractor: Cary Quality Insulation & Building Products, Fredericksburg, VA
Product Application: RetroShield® System [26,000sf installed]
The existing ceiling and wall insulation in their gym was separating at seams, breaking down and in need of repair.
Cary Quality Insulation & Building Products recommended Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System which has also been used successfully in the renovation of other school gyms and fitness centers.
RetroShield® System combines RBI Shield™ reflective bubble insulation with a patented Clip & Pin System, used to attach the insulation to the bottom of the existing metal purlins, allowing you to leave the existing insulation in place. The reflective white facing used in this application will generate an additional R-12, acts as a radiant barrier and vapor barrier, and provides a clean, finished appearance.
“This was our first install of the RetroShield® System and it will now be our system of choice for existing metal buildings. The installation was very straight forward and our customer was thrilled with the results” - Matt Belman, Division Manager, Cary Quality Insulation & Building Products.
