Product Overview

Installing a radiant barrier may be the lowest-cost improvement that can produce the greatest overall reduction in energy usage and expense. So the Reach Barrier 3023 Silvertanium Radiant Barrier is an ideal choice for cutting costs and making your home comfortable. It is the only non-laminated reflective insulation product available. It's pliable and easy to use. The highly reflective metallization on both sides and perforation give it great performance and breathability. Silvertanium technology stops 95% of radiant heat and is 30% lighter than other radiant barriers. This insulation is not a multiple-layer laminated product and it will never delaminate and fall apart. The proprietary protective coating will not oxidize or degrade over time, ensuring peak performance throughout the life of the product. At just a fraction of the thickness and weight, this insulation has up to four-times the tear resistance of other brands, making installation dramatically easier. Silvertanium meets all ASTM standards, complies with the international building code and is ideal for: attic spaces, exterior and interior walls, interior masonry walls, radiant floors, metal and steel buildings, crawl spaces, garage ceilings and many other applications where insulation is needed. This insulation roll is 250 ft. long, 48 in. high and 0.01 in. thick.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used over blown in insulation?

I live in a condo that has minimal blown in insulation. The rafters are all visible. Can I install this on top of the blown in insulation, stapling at the rafters, meaning not on the slanted roof rafters but on the ceiling rafters...meaning it will lay flat on top of the ceiling rafters. There will be an air space between the blown in insulation because there is so little of it. (hope this makes some sense to someone! LOL)
Asked by: Buddhafan
Not recommended to use as you suggest. The radiant barrier will act as vapor lock above the insulation possibly causing moisture damage to your ceiling. Air space or not this could happen. Put it on the rafters after you insulate between the joists.

What is the maximum temperature this product can be exposed to? My plans for a DIY sauna call for an aluminum vapor barrier behind the cedar wall boards. Sauna temps can get up to 180-190 degrees F. In other words, does this have a embedded plastic matrix like so many similar products. Also, does it come in smaller quantities than 250' rolls?

WOULD THIS ALSO HELP REFLECT THE COLD DURING THE WINTER MONTHS ?

Asked by: PHIL
To Phil and other HD customers: One of the people who responded to your question noted that this product would reflect heat back into your house in the winter. This is incorrect. The warm air inside your home is not "radiant" like a hot metal roof in the summer. That is why Reflectix, for example, claims R7 in a cathedral ceiling in summer -- but only R1 in winter. Even though the air next to the ceiling is warmer than anything else in the house, it is not 'radiant' (emitting infrared energy) and the shiny surface has almost no impact. I hope this clarifies things. Mark

Can this reflective insulation be installed in the attic stapled to the rafters to reflect heat out back to the exterior? And does it have perforations to allow moisture to migrate back and forth?
Asked by: Chris
Dear Chris: One more note. DIYguy replied and said Silvertanium does not have perforations. This is incorrect. It is perforated, which means that hot air created by heat reflected back toward the roof will flow right through it -- reducing the effectiveness of the radiant barrier. This is OK if you can lay it down on the floor of your attic, but not if you staple it to the bottom of the rafters. That is why I recommended Reflectix if you choose the rafter option. I hope this is helpful, Mark

4 ft. x 250 ft. Silvertanium Reflective Attic Insulation Roll is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.

The material is easy to work with--I bought it to install in my son's attic, and we were able to lay out the sheets in a matter of a couple hours. Along the sides where the rafters meet the joists, we made cuts every 16" to push the silvertanium flaps up to the juncture of attic floor and roof. The material is tough, and did not tear past the cuts. I am delighted to have discovered this product.

This Rech Barrier is the best Heat reflector and very strong to stretch to install.I fitted under sub floor on wood joist of our Living room, just after few hours the floor start warming.Maintaining the temperature at 65-70 F degree. I am very happy and glad that i choose the right stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tuff stuff Purchased this and installed in my shed just tacking it to the bottom of the rafters and the wall studs, then installed Masonite panels for a finished look. Wow, this dropped the temp in the shed by a good 10 - 15 degrees. The product is very tuff, just rolled it around the room, and used a staple gun to attach to the walls. My shed is a 10 x 20, so I used about 2/3rds of the roll to enclose the entire thing. Way worth the money spent, glad I did it. shed is now like being under a tree.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh? I bought this insulation as a (hopefully) cheaper option than that foil backed rigid foam insulation or installing an air conditioner, in order to keep the temperature down in my garage. The product probably does as advertised, which is deflect radiant heat. It did, in fact, reduce the temps in the attic space by about 10 degrees (105f down to 95f). The problem is that unless there is a place for the hot air to go it will still get hot in the ceiling. I ended up spending about $250 on a solar powered attic fan and it immediately vented the attic and cooled the space down. If you already have a roof vent then this product will probably work better for you than for me. The product is well made. It is tear resistant, easy to staple in place (the stapler is a separate review...Grrrr.) and east to trim.

Definitely reduces radiant heat load to the attic floor and insulation and, if put to the rafters, will lower attic temperature by quite a lot. This stuff is also very tear resistant. Although you can cut it easily with a razor or scissors, I doubt any man has the strength to actually tear it. Install in a truss attic is a bit tricky, but I was able to do it myself once I got the hang of it. Worth every penny.

I am putting it in the attic this winter while it not too hot up there. I am hopping for significant improvement in second floor AC performance during the summer since the AC unit is in the attic and it has to fight the high temps up there.

We used it to cover exposed foam insulation board in a warehouse to provide some fire retardant ability. This is an off label use but it worked well.
