Project Information: 

General Contractor: Family Home & Building Corp, Pueblo, CO

Insulation Contractor: Powers Thermal Insulation, Colorado Springs, CO

Application: RetroShield® System [6,300sf installed]

Completion Date: May 2010

The Problem

Improve the energy efficiency of their building and reduce operating costs.

Project Solution: 

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.
