Owner: Polk County Sheriff’s Department, Lakeland, FL
Insulation Contractor: Combee Insulation, Lakeland, FL
Product Application: RetroShield® System [4,000sf installed]
Completion Date: June 2000
Building was very hot and loud during rain storms, and 3” faced fiberglass metal building insulation was torn and falling down.
Combee Insulation retrofitted this pre-engineered metal building, with Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System - A system specifically designed for existing metal buildings.
Comment from Customer: “Before installing the RetroShield® System, the employees had to stand next to each other just to have a conversation. Now, since the install, we can use our normal voice to have a conversation. There is a considerable difference in sound reduction. I came in over the weekend to feed the dogs, during the heat of the day and it was considerably cooler than the previous days.”
Comment from Insulation Contractor: “You could walk from one end of the scaffolding to the other end and notice a considerable difference. There was at least a 20% difference between the cavities that were insulated versus the cavities that had not been installed with the RetroShield® System.”
