How would I use this to insulate my exterior walls with other insulation? Inside wall or outside wall?

For a hot roof application (radiant barrier), sealing the seams is not necessary. Respectfully, the responder from Mass. is in error. His statement is confusing two applications, radiant barriers and reflective insulations. Radiant barriers are installed in open attics (typically ventilated) and do not require enclosed air spaces. This type of application reduces radiant heat transfer and is not quantified with an R-value. Reflective insulation assemblies are installed in cavities that have enclosed air spaces and provide stated R-value benefits. Reflective insulation is tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam products, and in wall and floor systems, provides a year around R-value benefit.

What is recommended to insulate a metal building for commercial use?

Asked by ICE July 8, 2016

Answers

Dear Ice and other Home Depot customers: The new reply from someone in the Reflectix Technical Group is curious. He / she stated: "Respectfully, the responder from Mass. is in error. His statement is confusing two applications, radiant barriers and reflective insulations. Radiant barriers are installed in open attics (typically ventilated) and do not require enclosed air spaces.

Reflective insulation assemblies are installed in cavities that have enclosed air spaces and provide stated R-value benefits. Reflective insulation is tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam products, and in wall and floor systems, provides a year around R-value benefit." First, commercial metal buildings typically do not have an enclosed and ventilated attic, like a house. So Ice would need to install Reflectix under the metal roof, with a sealed air gap. Second, Reflectix is NOT tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam insulation. You can see this on the Home Depot website. Fiberglass, foam board and other standard insulation products are tested as materials, with an R value per inch of thickness -- e.g. R-13 for 3.5" of Owens Corning fiberglass, and R-5 per inch with Foamular foam board. Reflectix is always tested as part of an assembly, e.g. a simulated wall with 2x4 studs, dry wall, an air space and layer of Reflectix. Why? Because the shiny bubble wrap that Reflectix is made from has very little R value -- only R-1. The sealed air gap that you must build / create provides almost all of the claimed R values, not the bubble wrap by itself. Third, the performance of Reflectix and other radiant barriers varies with the temperature -- better in summer and poor in winter. In a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer but only R1 in winter in the northern USA. Why? Because cold cannot be 'reflected' and warmer air inside your home does not create much infrared (radiant) energy. Reflectix should provide ASTM test reports that show R-value performance in summer AND winter temperatures for each assembly, and post these reports on their website. I look forward to more detailed information from the Reflectix Technical Group. Mark

Answers

Thank you for your question. Duct insulation is a very prevalent application for our product. Either Reflectix Foil Tape or an HVAC Foil Duct tape with an acrylic adhesive will work for your purpose. Please refer to the product webpage - then to the "Info and Guides" box a little lower to the right on the page - click on "Installation Guide" - the Duct Application is listed and will provide you the additional instructions that you require.

air space between roof deck and product

Asked by Jim June 14, 2016
5
Answers

For clarification. The application/question relates to the Double Reflective/Double Bubble product. The application of interest is for a radiant barrier in an attic. This product is not perforated (like the RB4812550) and as a result should maintain an air space between the product and the deck. The 0.25" is a "minimum", 0.75" is AOK and does not affect the performance of a radiant barrier. Radiant barriers block radiant heat transfer and do not require enclosed air spaces. Thank you for your comments.

This is my review so far. 10/11/2020 I purchased This Reflectix 16 in. X 100 ft. Double Reflective Insulation roll with staple tab edge, to insulate a porch that is is 10 ft deep, by 20 ft. across. I opened my first roll of 6 rolls that ordered. I started cutting the roll into 10 ft lengths, and was expecting to have 10 rolls when I was done. HOWEVER, When I got to the last piece, of the roll, I was thinking I SHOULD have a 10 foot length to finish off the 100 ft. roll. Because, 10 X 10 ft lengths divided by a 100 foot roll, should come out even. RIGHT? WRONG!!!!!!! It was 2 ft short, I have an 8 foot piece left over??? How did that happen??? SO??? NOW>>>> I have 9 rolls @ 10 feet, 1 roll @ 8 feet... and NOT enough to finish my project. I THOUGHT bought enough to do THE WHOLE project.... NOT Almost the whole project!!! If You do a little more simple math, 2ft short per roll on the 6 rolls I bought 2 ft X 6 rolls = A Total of 12 feet SHORT!!! That Equates to a full joist run plus a bit from another short??? NOW? Should I Have to make up for it??? HOW, does that happen ??? I ordered the 6 rolls @ 100 feet each, , for delivery... I had it all shipped to my home, to be able to work on it this weekend. I am NO WHERE NEAR a Home Depot, Hence the DELIVERY... So I can NOT just Run out for another, ONE roll, either... and what??? SO I can spend another 50 bucks more for a full roll, ...only to use 10 feet? I already ORDERED, Had Shipped and PAID for WHAT I NEEDED! Not what the People @ Reflectix seemed to think... would be close enough! I guess MY thought is, IF you are going to RIP PEOPLE OFF, ... be a nice bunch and At least have the decency to throw in a disclaimer in your header, that states something like this, "Due to the fact WE can not be bothered by Quality control... The rolls We advertise as 100 feet, are actually only Approximately 100ft, give or take a few feet. We recommend that, Just So you are able to complete your project hassle free, you might want to order an extra roll @ 50 bucks a pop! "

Until I replace my old, old windows, this is the best insulation I've found that is easy to use and durable. The product is inexpensive and easy to use. I wish the height was double from 16 in to 32 in for my taller windows. It was very easy to double it by taping it together to make the height that I needed. I'm buying another roll for my water heater, crawl space and one more for my parents as a Christmas gift.

INSULATING MISS BINKY'S CAT HOUSE. The outdoor pet house I purchased for my Cat (Miss Binky) wouldn't hold heat during the winter even with 40 watt light fixture in the house fed by a GFI outlet. I could feel the heat escaping through the plastic walls. To correct this I purchased a 16" x 25' roll of Reflectix and installed the product on the interior of the cat house which corrected the problem as most of the heat from the light bulb is now trapped inside the cathouse. I used Liquid Nails FUZ-IT to glue the Reflectix to the walls. The installation was easy and resembled working with a fabric. Even though I'm fairly inept, the project came out fine and Miss Binky has a warm place to spend the winter. I'll be at my Daughter's house tomorrow insulating her dog house for "Panda".

I'm installing this currently to add some R-value in a cathedral ceiling prior to insulation. Testing joist temperature with IR thermometer, and this product is dropping the temp 10-15 degrees F in direct sun. I was a little skeptical before I started; now I'm glad I used it. I stapled in the middle as well to ensure a snug fit, as I will be leaving a 1" gap for ventilation to ridge rafter, and didn't want product to sag.

Easy to install on HVAC hard ducts when using the foil tape. I cut 17" lengths, wrapped loosely enough to slide/rotate around duct. gave a little push and did another. Taped around joined ends and seams and repeated. I could push 10 ft of straight 6" duct with no problem. Bends are a bit of work to cover if they're tight and you don't remember your geometry. Mine were those hard rotatable sections and they turned out not neat -- but covered. Served my needs well and BIG difference in temperature of duct with A/C on. I don't want A/C to cool my basement- now it's all going up to the living areas. A/C cycles off much quicker.

This is my second review since I completed the project. On a blazing hot sunny day it was very hot inside the aluminum skinned shed. You can feel the heat radiating down from the roof. As you moved under the roof to where the product was installed it was like walking under a shade tree. As one complained about the tbs, it takes a little learning curve on how to get the staple table to work. On the first side that you folded over to staple, place the staple close to the edge of the product and staple several feet on one side only. This gives you a little slack to grab the other side to get the staple tab started. The tab is about one inch on each side. This 12x24 foot shed took six rolls of 16"x100' of product including the ceiling. In the photo the shop lights are the Commercial Electric 4 ft. White LED Linkable Shop Light purchased at Home Depot.

A real nice product. I using this in an non-insulated prefab storage shed. In South Florida intense heat, humidity and sun on the aluminum siding acts like an oven on the inside. Reflecting the heat was more efficient than trying to insulate it with 3.5 inches of fiberglass. The fiberglass would act like a sponge and not allow the walls to breathe. The project is not complete but it does go in very easy. This is nearly identical to the solar reflective panels you can buy for your vehicle windshield. There is a similar product in the attic space of my home stapled to the roof rafters and it really keeps the temperature down so I know this product will work. My only complaint is HD should carry this product in its stores.

I decided to install this material according to manufacturer recommendations in an enclosed section of a cabin I am building to warm things up a bit until i put in the full course insulation. I installed this by stapling to width between the stud walls and trusses. The exterior at this point is the James Hardie fiber cement boards over 15# felt as vapor barrier. Interior does not have any drywall or paneling yet. My gut feel that this was extremely easy to install paid off and I had some insulation inside the 10'x10' enclosed working area in half a day using nothing but staples and a utility knife to cut to length. Now here comes the surprising part. Before adding the insulation, my little Mr. Heater portable buddy set to low heat could keep a seven degree Fahrenheit warmer interior. I was happy with that as it was but then after I installed this insulation, the same heater on the same setting could maintain a 20 degree Fahrenheit warmer interior! (I use an exterior/interior digital thermometer while I work) It was well worth the price and the value, knowing that when I begin adding the rigid wall insulation my initial quick fix will also add to the overall R value of the walls and also help keep things cool inside during the summer! I plan to use this over the rest of the building project too given the economic value and improved heat retention.

Installed it on the inside of my roof which has no isolation like a cabin. This layer traps all the heat that would usually fill the house. I don't need to tarp my roof anymore.
