Improve the energy efficiency of their building and reduce operating costs.
Powers Thermal Insulation installed Fi-Foil’s Ret-roShield® System on Xcel Energy’s metal building at Comanche Station. The system is designed to increase energy efficiency in existing metal build-ings. RetroShield® is a patented system that fea-tures a unique Clip & Pin Component to attach Fi-Foil’s RBI Shield™ reflective insulation to the bottom of the existing Purlins.
The RetroShield® System is offered in three dif-ferent facing options: white, aluminum and black. Xcel Energy selected the white facing for their building - resulting in a clean, bright finished ap-pearance.
They achieved a thermal resistance of R-12 using Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System, in this application. Xcel was impressed with the appearance and per-formance of the system and has scheduled a sec-ond building for RetroShield.
