  • Insulation Stop Launches New Pole Barn Insulation System

    Insulation Stop, the nation's leading provider of radiant barrier and bubble foil insulation is pleased to offer the InfraStop® Pole Barn Insulation System to its customer base. This pole barn solution allows consumers the ability to insulate their pole barn or post frame building.

    The choice on how to insulate a pole barn or post frame building and which product to use is widely debated. Moisture and air infiltration as well as site specific considerations need to be determined. Fiberglass insulation has proved largely ineffective in insulating these areas. InfraStop® Pole Barn Insulation System was designed to provide one effective material for all applications.

    "Common new construction and retrofit applications this system covers include the roof and walls as well as under slab if one is present in two interior colors, foil and white.  Foil insulation performs exceptionally well in these applications. One reason is its resistance to moisture. Barns and post frame buildings are prone to condensation", stated Nick Semon, owner of Insulation Stop.

    "In heating seasons, radiant heat escapes through the walls and ceilings of your building. This can be especially wasteful if you are using an expensive fuel source. The foil insulation blocks this transfer of heat and reflects it back toward the interior space. The same concept applies in the other hotter months. The foil insulation blocks the transfer of radiant heat generated by the sun reflecting this heat before it enters your building. A radiant barrier, by definition blocks the transfer of radiant heat. Using reflective insulation in any application in this system is a great, low cost investment to reduce your heating costs."

    Nick Semon is co-owner of Insulation Stop. They offer individual and bulk orders of U.S. made radiant barrier and reflective bubble foil insulation products for commercial and residential use. The company is committed to offering extensive knowledge on the use and application of its reflective insulation products.

  • Steel & Metal Buildings: Airpace Requirements for Reflective Insulation

    Reflective insulation requires an existing airspace on one side of the insulation in order to work properly as a radiant barrier. This airspace may be small but it is essential. Foil insulation used without an airspace, as in under concrete insulation for example cease being a radiant barrier.  You still get some insulation value but it's in the form of a thermal break, not a radiant barrier.

    Tempshield double bubble reflective both or reflective one side products have been tested in various metal building applications and achieved various r-values depending on the installation.

    Please take a look at our metal building insulation airspace page where you can find the required airspace, application, and r-value for all of your barn insulation needs.

  • Barn Insulation and Fuel Sources

    One of the most enjoyable things about our job is we offer products to consumers that save them money. Insulation. Everyone needs insulation to some capacity. I bet the people who make and sell great winter coats like the fact they offer a good product at a good price.

    This post is about a conversation we had with a potential customer who is looking to insulate his on slab pole barn and wanted to create a finished insulation system. He already has single bubble reflective one side in the rafters but that is the extent of his barn insulation. He is interested in insulating the side walls and running a second layer of material across the bottom of the trusses effectively creating a ceiling 12' high.

    What is interesting in talking to the customer and about his specific building is that he wants to be able to keep the building at mid 40° F hopefully 50° F when the outside temperature is -10° F during a Montana winter.  If this was a residential house without any other insulation with a residential heating system in Montana, this would be financial suicide. You would be essentially paying your local utility company extra money because you are way under insulated for your climate and preferred heating temperature.

    But, if this is your shop and you have a good heating system installed and access to resources like firewood in this case, reflective insulation is an easy low cost alternative to spending a lot of money on insulation. You only need to pay a lot for insulation when you have to pay a lot to heat or cool your building.

    In this customer's case, insulating the sidewalls will finish his insulation system. Basically, sealing the building is the first, best step to heat retention. Lowering the insulating space by running insulation across the bottom of the trusses and creating a ceiling as the customer suggested will also be helpful. The nice thing is the customer can insulate the sidewalls first and add the second layer overhead at a later date if they feel it is required.

    It is always important to understand your goals and costs when evaluating how you should insulate your buildings. Looking closely at your usage, heating costs, insulation costs, and lifespan you will own the building will give you a good idea of how much you should pay for insulation. Looking at a particular project in detail is always helpful in demonstrating how effective and cost effective using our or any insulation will be.
