The Sky-Web-II® System is an innovative passive restraint system that protects workers from falls at the leading edge of a roof. It provides a “web” of knotted nylon mesh that is attached to the perimeter of the roof’s secondary structural members. This products leads to an increase in safety and reduces injury.

The Many Uses of Metal Building Insulation

 

While its name may lead you to believe it’s only for insulating metal buildings, the uses of laminated or unfaced fiberglass metal building insulation are limitless!

 

Metal building insulation is most commonly used by steel erectors while the steel building is being put up.  The erector will typically run a 4’ or 6’ roll of white faced insulation over the roof of a metal building.  The erector will start at the building’s eave and work towards the ridge and then work back down to the other eave.  The insulation is sandwiched in place between the roof purlin and roof sheeting.  The same method can be applied to the walls.  A 4’ or 6’ insulation is typically hung from the eave down to the floor and then held in place by a friction fit between the wall girt and wall panel. The 4’ and 6’ rolls provide for labor savings and make metal building insulation a cost effective method for insulating a steel building

 

An insulation contractor can use these faced rolls to retrofit an old metal building where the standard 2” white vinyl used in days past is no longer sufficient for comfort. Or the contractor could use metal building insulation for a sub floor with non-standard framing such as a floor with 48” on center framing members.  A contractor could also insulate a tilt wall or pre-cast concrete building with this insulation. In some areas, one could even use metal building insulation in a curtain wall application, though it’s best to check your local building codes for approved applications
An HVAC contractor can use FSK faced rolls of metal building insulation to wrap ducts, keeping conditioned air cool as it runs through the ducts.

 

A BPI specialist can wrap an older water heater with metal building insulation, or can improve the comfort of one’s home by insulating an often overlooked knee-wall in a residential attic.
Even the homeowner can get involved with metal building insulation, unrolling it over existing insulation in their attic to give them some additional R Value.

 

The next time your insulation needs require some outside of the box thinking, consider metal building insulation from Service Partners.
