Installations Procedures:

The installation situation you have will determine the required materials you’ll need.

  • Reflective or Double-Sided Tape
  • Steel sealant
  • Metal Pins and Caps
  • Knife
  • Heat Gun
  • Reflective Tape – purpose is to seal the seams. This is applied to Reflective (White facing). It is not need with R17 because there is a adhesive already on the rolls and for R22, a heat gun is used to seal the seams.
  • Double-Sided Tape purpose is to make sure the insulation doesn’t blow away during the installation process as well as helps attach insulation to the surfaces and seals seams.
  • Steel Sealant – Is a super glue that is used to attached insulation with the metal pin to surfaces such as wood, aluminum, steel and much more.
  • Metal Pins and Caps – Are used to attached insulation to surfaces such as wood, aluminum, steel and much more.
  • Knife – To cut insulation
  • Heat Gun – Purpose is to seal the seams on our R22

Installation for New Metal Building Construction

  1. The first step is to apply double-sided tape on purlins to keep insulation from blowing away
  2. Then simply roll the insulation (whether reflective or fiberglass) perpendicular to the purlin.
  3. The insulation should sag approximately 2′ inches to create a air-cap.
  4. It is best to purchase reflective tape or double-sided tape to seal each seam. If you are purchasing our R-Value 17, it has an adhesive attached to the rolls (picture on the right); therefore, you don’t need seam tape. If you are purchasing an R-22, it seals with a Heat gun (picture in the middle).
  5. Lastly, attached sheeting.

The hot gun is used to seal seams for R-Value 22

R-Value 17 has adhesive tape on the roll!

Installation for New Pole Barn Construction

  1. Apply double-sided tape on top of framing to keep insulation from blowing away.
  2. Then roll the insulation (whether reflective or fiberglass) perpendicular to the purlin.
  3. Have cap nails, screws with locking washers. Alternative is 1/2″ staples to directly attach the insulation to the wood framing.
  4. Again, for best performance, create a airspace of 3/4″ or more. 3/4″ furring strips are great. Another option to create an airspace is to push the insulation in a few inches.
  5. Again if you have purchased R 15.3 (white), tape the seam with reflective tape.

Insulation steps for Erected Steel Structures

The retrofitting instructions refer to buildings with or without prior insulation layers. It also refers to buildings that already have sheeting installed.

Tubular Buildings

  1. The insulation is rolled perpendicular to the framing. Don’t be concerned about the space between the framing because the insulation is laying the opposite direction.
  2. The insulation is attached using self -drilling screws. We recommend 3/4″ screws with locking washers.
  3. If you are buying Reflective (white facing) R15.3, purchase reflective tape to seal seams. This is not needed with R22 or R17 orders. With R22, the seams are attached with a heat gun. With R17, there is adhesive attached to each roll.

I -Beam and Web Steel Structures

Two common insulation methods used below

Method 1: The insulation is attached with the use of pins and caps.

Items needed: Reflective tape, Metal Sealant, Pins and caps

  1. Start by putting a glob of glue on base of the pin. Then press the pin on to the sheeting. Space the pins 1 every square foot. It will take approximately 24 hours for glue to fully secure.
  2. Push the insulation through the pin. Once done, put the cap on the pin to secure the insulation
  3. Then snip the end of the pins.

Method 2: Your insulation is attached with double sided and glue

  1. A line of glue and double side tape should run adjacent to each other on the bottom on the I-beam. The tape is a short-term hold and the glue is a longer-term hold.

For best performance, make sure to have a 3/4″ air -cap or more. Also, make sure you seal the seams.

The retrofitting instructions refer to buildings with or without prior insulation layers. It also refers to buildings that already have sheeting installed.

Retrofitting Insulation between purlins and girts

  1. When attaching insulation between The Framing

Use cap nails, and screws that have locking washers. The alternative is 1/2″ stables. For best results, leave air 1″ air gap.
