About Radiant Barrier Insulation

Radiant barrier insulation helps radiant heat loss and gain in metal buildings and post frame structures, utilized in the roof and in the walls.

What Is Radiant Barrier Insulation?

Radiant barrier insulation is an insulation product that incorporates fiberglass, along with a foil facing and interior facing, to protect against radiant heat loss and gain in buildings. It can be utilized in both metal buildings and post frame structures. It can be installed below the roof and above the purlins or roof members, as well as below the purlins and in the walls. It provides light reflectivity, which can reduce additional lighting requirements, achieves a great look, and improves the overall energy efficiency of a building.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is insulation facing?
Insulation is available in products as both faced and unfaced. If an insulation has facing, it is made with an extra layer of protection on one side, which is typically made with paper, plastic or foil. If it is unfaced, it does not. Faced insulation provides extra protection from heat and moisture. It can help keep mold at bay and keep construction in peak quality.
Where in a building or home is radiant barrier insulation normally used?
If you need to install radiant barrier insulation, there are two main areas in a metal building or post frame structure for radiant barrier insulation installation: the roof and walls. In a roof, radiant barrier insulation is installed above or below the purlins or roof members. It can also be used in residential construction in a wide range of applications.
In what geographies can radiant barrier insulation be used?
Radiant barrier insulation is a popular metal building insulation product for roofing and walls in any geography across the United States. It is great for any climate, since it reduces radiant heat gain and loss through a building envelope, when installed properly. Plus, it can complement the performance of traditional thermal insulation products.
Can radiant barrier insulation be used in residential or commercial construction?
Radiant barrier insulation is used to reduce radiant energy gain or loss in a metal building, through the highly reflective, low emissivity facings. It is used for insulating metal buildings in commercial construction, but it can also be used in residential applications, such as in attics in colder climates.
