About Metal Building Insulation

Metal building insulation is fiberglass blanket insulation, often laminated to a vapor barrier for condensation control and left exposed.

What Is Metal Building Insulation?

Metal building insulation consists of a vapor barrier laminated to fiberglass blanket insulation and is custom cut to fit the building. The vapor barrier facing allows the insulation to be exposed, controls condensation, provides light reflectivity and can achieve longer lengths to span the widths of metal buildings.
Metal building insulation is a highly efficient method of insulating steel structures to meet required R-values and wide roof spans. It also provides thermal performance, comfort, sound absorption, and improved aesthetics.

Metal Building Insulation Benefits

Metal building insulation provides a number of benefits, including condensation control, sound absorption, and improved aesthetics.

Condensation Control

Metal building insulation is key to high thermal performance for your metal building. Metal building insulation provides effective condensation control, helping to keep moisture at bay and protecting construction from costly damage. As a result, it also improves energy efficiency of the building.

Improved Aesthetics

Metal building insulation is great for improving the aesthetics in a metal building. Metal building insulation can be installed to hide the purlins in the building for a clean appearance, and it can provide light reflectivity, which can reduce the need for additional lighting requirements. Whether it’s the owner or the project manager wanting improved aesthetics, you can get the look you want with metal building insulation like fiberglass blanket insulation and laminated facings.
