This stuff is Awesome in our metal buildings. Read about this great insulation below.




  • Air Ducts: 10 to 30 percent of the energy used to heat and cool the air is lost to conduction through the duct surfaces.
  • Attics: A new generation attic radiant barrier not only reduces air conditioning bills – It also reduces heating bills.
  • Basements and Crawlspaces: Due to their underground environment, basements and crawl spaces have different insulation requirements than the house above.
  • Garages: Insulate the wall between the garage and the rest of the house. This will reduce heat, cold and noise from coming into your home.
  • Metal Buildings: Ever wonder why it’s so hot and wet inside a metal building in the summer and so cold and wet in winter?
  • Pole Barns: The best insulation for a pole barns will keep the inside of the structure cool in summer, warm in winter and dry all the time.
  • Poultry Houses: A little known natural phenomenon called the “black-globe effect” has a pronounced stress factor relating to the cost efficiency (or inefficiency) of weight gain in meat producing animals and birds.
  • Roofs: Because heat rises, you’ll have more winter heat loss through your through your walls.
  • Walls: Radiation accounts for 65-85 percent of all heat transfer through walls.
