PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # 3009

Internet # 203536784

The Reach Barrier Air Reflective Garage Door Insulation Kit includes eight pre-cut panels and everything needed for installation. Two layers of sealed air laminated between two layers of durable reflective polyethylene work to retain air longer and provide excellent insulation and sound reduction. Designed to help maintain a more consistent garage temperature all year long while also reducing outside noise, the material is light, strong and able to withstand the most aggressive environmental conditions. The pieces are easily secured by a set of adhesives whose bond strengthens as the garage door gets hotter. Simple and energy efficient, radiant (Reflective) barriers are installed in attics, walls, roof decking and flooring, offering a low-cost improvement that can substantially reduce energy usage and expense.

  • No special tools or protective clothing required for installation and handling
  • Deflects heat in summer and retains heat like a blanket in winter, saving energy and money
  • Eco-friendly design is made of 20% recycled material
  • 1/8 in. thick adhesive fasteners are high-density, open-cell polyurethane foam with long-lasting acrylic adhesive on both sides
  • Kit meets ASTM standards and complies with building code
  • Includes eight 24 in. x 48 in. pre-cut panels and 48 adhesive fasteners measuring 1 sq. in. each

Dear Tixley: Yes, and it must be sealed. All radiant barrier insulation products require you to build / create a sealed air gap on one side, e.g. between a hot metal roof and the radiant barrier. This air gap provides almost all of the insulation R value. The shiny plastic has almost no R value.

It is obviously impossible to create a sealed air pocket on a garage door, so this product would not be effective.

Also avoid foam panels. Foam is very flammable and must be covered by an approved thermal barrier in a garage, home, basement, etc. The standard is 1/2" drywall -- so this cannot be used on a garage door either.
Home Depot sells another garage door insulation product that is based on standard fiberglass, and is easy to install: Owens Corning Model # GD01, Home Depot Internet # 202257272 Store SKU # 744925

Yes, the product is basically a mylar/foil covered bubble wrap of sorts with some rigid qualities that allow it to stay in place with tape. Although the tape is supposed to keep it pressed against the door itself, it has not been the strongest point of this product. The tape is somewhat problematic but, with some extra pieces of rigid foam insulation added to hold the barrier in the opening, the radiant barrier remained in place without problems. My door had zero insulation (aluminum pressed) and had enough space to handle the barrier and the foam core together. It works like a charm though... saves lots of HVAC costs in both the winter and summer months. For the price, you cannot beat this product. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes they cut easily with a pair of scissors. But cutting will create more pieces to put on the door, and you may run short on the stick-on tabs. Suggest you get a 20 ft double-sticky-sided Duck Tape and use it for the centers of the sheet instead of the little tab in the center of each sheet. My cutting and pasting worked out great with the double Duck Tape and included sticky tabs.

Answer: 
Sheila, yes they can be cut. There are several air "bubbles" per square inch, but cutting into them will not reduce the effectiveness much at all. The primary benefit of this product is its reflective properties of the two surfaces, not the insulating value. If you need or want more insulation, consider the styrofoam sheets (Garage Door Insulation Kit).

In my earlier post I said I would test my garage door insulation by putting just the foam insulation without the radiant barrier (all the panels except the bottom row panels in the photo's). Then add the radiant barrier on top of the insulation, so the radiant barrier is facing the inside of the garage. This is the lower left panel. This is the photo with the temp showing 63.5 deg F.

The third photo shows a temp of the lower right panel of 59.2deg F. this was the case where the radiant barrier was against the door and the insulation was facing the inside of the garage. So it made a difference having the radiant barrier on the inside. that's unfortunate because the insulation i bought from HD (unbradned) had a nice white plastic coating that made it look nice and easy to clean.

I'm installing this radiant barrier with insulation also. There is somewhat of a debate which side of the insulation to put the radiant barrier. the radiant barrier does best if there is an air gap between it and the radiant body (the garage door in this case). The problem with putting the radiant barrier on the door then putting the insulation on is that it eliminates any air gap between the radiant barrier and the door (or at least in my case with the thickness of the insulation). By putting the insulation on first then the radiant barrier you have created an "air" gap with thermal resistance using the insulation. From a system point of view you may have lost a little bit of effectivity by having the thermal resistance but you've also gained by having an air gap. As someone else said you don't chance the reflective properties of the radiant barrier in either case. you just change the performance of the system. All that said, I plan to install it door-insulation-radiant barrier but I'm going to do just the opposite on one panel so I can measure and compare it to the others in the winter and the summer to verify this theory Read Less

Bear in mind that the "Air Reflective" kit is primarily a "radiant barrier" and should be installed closest to the outside, with the Owens Corning insulating foam sheets installed closest to the interior of the garage.
This "radiant barrier" kit will nicely supplement the Owens Corning insulation kit. The Owens Corning kit will raise the R-value (insulating value) and the Air Reflective kit will lower the "e-value", which is to lower the emittance of radiated heat via reflection of the radiated heat. "Low-e" windows do the same thing.
Radiated heat comes from the sun and from objects outside your garage that are hotter than the garage door, such as the driveway, nearby bricks, cars in the driveway, etc. If your garage door faces north, then you're not getting any radiated heat directly from the sun, but will still get it from other objects.
This kit will be most effective at reflecting radiated heat from direct sunlight.

Absolutely YES. The spring was calibrated for a specific door weight and any additional will put additional strain on the spring and opener, decreasing their service life.
The solution is to adjust the springs so they are calibrated to the new weight.

Answer: 
Dave, I think that the weight of the product installed is negligible compared to the weight of a double garage door. A wood door probably weighs over 200 lbs and a single layer steel door weighs at least 100 lbs. The spring(s) are offsetting most of the weight anyway, so your opener is not working very hard. Another 10 lbs really should not make a difference in the longevity of the opener.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 99 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job It was really easy to install. We definitely were glad that we had purchased double sided duck tape before we started. But otherwise it's I noticeable difference. We do have a mail slot in our garage door so we just cut a hole for that and taped around the hole so the mail wouldn't get stuck in it. We're definitely happy with it. January 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks like JiffyPop for your garage door Despite the statement in the instructions that there should be no need to cut the pieces of insulation to fit, I had to trim about 1.5 - 2 inches off of the height of each piece, and in some cases, I also needed to trim a small bit along one side. Also, there are spots where it looks like it could use more than just the six small pieces of double-sided tape. That said, I can feel a difference in the temperature by the sections that have the insulation versus those where I still need to put it up, so I do expect to see a benefit from it. I wish it had more of a matte or neutral appearance, though, as the shiny silver finish makes it look like you've covered your door in a Jiffy Pop wrapper. November 15, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meh. And buy extra tape. Panels started to fall out almost immediately - ALL of the tape sticks to the door, no issue - it's sticking to the product itself that fails. Get more double-sided tape. Can't say that I notice a huge difference TBH. Wasn't hard to install by any means (simple trim with a box knife and straight edge) but I just don't think I'm gaining a lot from the money spent. For the material provided (simply mylar bubble material) the cost of the kit should cover TWO doors, not just one. The fact that the adhesive tape supplied is insufficient also means more money on double-sided tape (which is NOT cheap). It's a pass for me - YMMV. October 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a Breeze!! Ordered your Reach Barrier garage door reflective lining. So easy to install, it took us about two hours from opening the box to cleaning up! We had to order two boxes for our two-car garage. Noticeable difference in inside temperature almost immediately. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well. The garage temperature was lowering as I fitted each new panel to the garage door. I had a double and a single door to install the radiant barrier on to. It does not go up in 10 minutes, I took about 4 hours to do the "three" doors. The less cutting and fitting you do, the faster it will go on. You will need double stick tape, I had smaller inside panels on the double door that worked well with the tape strips supplied, but the larger outside panels needed 4"-6" of tape along each end's edge. The top and bottom edges stuff behind the panels so don't need any tape. I cleaned the garage door panels very well with alcohol and never had any issues with the supplied tape strips and the double sided tape. This stuff is tough, hard to damage, doesn't tear easily without a scissors or a razor blade. Use a fresh blade and it will slice through it easily. The sun hits my doors in the morning, Dallas April temps in the morning were 105 deg F on each unprotected panel and 75 deg F with the barrier installed. I only did a few panels and checked the temps as I didn't want to put on three boxes and find it didn't give me what I was looking for. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Easy installation. Lightweight so it shouldn't effect the door mechanism. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stuff! It's a perfect insulator I just need an insulation on my garage ceiling. March 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product but measure first. Materials are good and easy to work with. Be sure to measure the panels in you garge befoe ordering though. Standard-cut insulation panels did not fit mine without extensive cutting and taping. What I expected to be a 20 min. job turned into 5 hours. Also plan to use two-sided tape rather than the small "stickies" provided. February 27, 2016
