In What Geographies Can Insulation Support Materials Be Used?
There are no limitations to where insulation support materials can be used. They are suitable for all parts of the United States and all climates. Many can be used outdoors. Anywhere where you are installing insulation and want it to be secured from falling down, you can use insulation support materials like mesh, mechanical fasteners, and wire and strapping.
Can Insulation Support Materials Be Used in Residential or Commercial Construction?
