  • Insulating with Radiant Barriers: Finding the Right Application

    Radiant barriers and reflective foil insulation are used in a wide variety of applications. For building materials, their use can be broken into several categories. Among these categories are exterior walls, ceilings, and crawlspaces. Staple tab foil insulation is commonly used here as the installation is similar to traditional fiberglass insulation. 

    Our layered concrete slab insulation is used in under concrete slab and in radiant heat applications. Two other categories that radiant barrier technology is commonly used in are post frame and pole barn buildings as well as metal and steel buildings. 

    We have created a page that you can easily access all of our radiant barrier applications from.
