Features

  • HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • Radiant energy, the major source of heat flow, is energy in the form of infrared waves. It travels at the speed of light, even through a vacuum; and is either transmitted through, absorbed into, or reflected by any material it contacts

POST FRAME CONSTRUCTION THERMAL VALUES

ROOF
Thermal resistance values for roof applications in typical post frame construction have been tested on an assembly consisting of a corrugated metal exterior, a 2" x 4" purlin, Ply-Foil Insulation, and a 2" x 6" to represent the top cord of a truss. The test was conducted with normal construction methods.

1) With wafer board covering the interior and airspace in between.
2) A metal liner with air space, and
3) Extrapolated to remove the liner to leave the Ply-Foil exposed.

WALLS

The thermal resistance values for installation in walls of post frame buildings have been tested on an assembly consisting of corrugated metal exterior, 2" x 4" girts, Ply-Foil Insulation, a 2" x 6" to represent the support beams and a 1/2" wafer board as an interior wall covering. The thermal values are for double bubble and single bubble insulation.
