Radiant Barrier Insulation
SMARTFOILS is proud to offer the following Home Barrier and Business Barrier quality products:
SMARTFOILS Home Barrier Perforated and Home Barrier Non-Perforated Insulation are multi-layered radiant barrier products.
The Home Barrier Non-Perforated insulation has an internal layer is metalized PVC, an outer layer of .000285" aluminum foil, laminated with a fire retardant adhesive to 30 lb. natural kraft that is reinforced with a tri-directional fiberglass and polyester scrim.
The Home Barrier Perforated product is made up of two layers of aluminum foil laminated to a layer of woven polyester with two layers of polyethylene.
Home Barrier Perforated and Home Barrier Non-Perforated products are intended for use on the underside roof rafters, and for use with mass insulation.
In new home construction applications the Home Barrier Perforated product is recommended for use in “bonus rooms” or “knee walls” (walls facing hot/cold attic temperatures) on the outside of the wall and recommended for use on all of the exterior walls and the ceilings being placed on the inside of the wall, before the drywall is applied.
SMARTFOILS Home Barrier Expandable Multi-Layer is an expandable, multi-layer radiant barrier product. The inside layer is a 1.4ml metalized PVC with an outer layer of .000285" aluminum foil, laminated with a fire retardant adhesive to 30 lb. natural kraft, reinforced with a tri-directional fiberglass and polyester scrim. The layers expand when installed to form a reflective air space. Home Barrier Expandable Multi-Layer is suggested for use in attic radiant barrier applications.
SMARTFOILS Home Barrier Reflective Bubble Insulation (RBI) and Business Barrier RBI is a multipurpose insulation for residential, commercial and agricultural applications in roofs, floors and walls. RBI is available in double-bubble and single- bubble thicknesses, in white/foil or foil/foil facings. RBI is also available with an integrated tab, which eliminates the need for taping the seams. A few of of RBI’s many applications include: radiant floor heating (slabs and floor joists), sheds, garage doors, crawl spaces, pre-engineered metal buildings, steel framed homes, metal roofs, poultry barns, and mini storage facilities. RBI can also serve as a vapor barrier when needed.
SMARTFOILS Business Barrier Retro-Reflector System was developed primarily for the metal building industry. It offers the ideal solution for the retrofitting and upgrading of insulation systems in existing metal buildings, as well as in new-building construction. This exclusive system is offered in both white and foil facings, and utilizes our Business Barrier RBI product (with integrated tape tab), in conjunction with “Clip & Pin” components. These components are designed to facilitate the easy installation of the product to the lip of the roof purlins and side walls. This eliminates the need for additional framing or other alterations to complete the retrofit process. The result is increased occupant comfort, reduced sound transmission, and lower heating & cooling costs!
SMARTFOILS Tuff-Tape is available in 2" and 3" widths, in both white and foil facings. This reinforced tape employs acrylic adhesives, which are known to increase in strength by hardening as time progresses. This serves to solidify the adhesive bonding power of the tape to the surface it is adhered to. SMARTFOILS Tuff-Tape Is used to accommodate the easy installation of SMARTFOILS Home Barrier and Business Barrier quality products in every conceivable application where stapling is not permitted.
