In situations where weather is a factor and heat retention is required, buildings can be designed and constructed with various types of insulation & liners. Our team will work with you to determine the best option for your project.
Fabric Liner with Fiberglass Batt Insulation
- When you require a consistent air temperature above 10οC inside your building, the solution is installing R20 or R30 fiberglass batt insulation between the two truss chords.
- Upfront cost of this option may be higher however, fuel consumption will be significantly decreased for long term cost savings.
- Fiberglass batt insulation is installed with our standard liner package. It not only provides exceptional heat retention but a quality vapor barrier as well.
- The effectiveness of a fiberglass batt insulation system can be optimized with a forced air heating system.
- In buildings with minimal door opening & closing, radiant tube heating may be a sufficient heating system with this insulation option.
Industrial Grade Reflective Foil Insulation Liner
- Reflective foil insulation provides a low cost option. Although the R-value is lower, this type of insulation will not take on moisture, rot or mildew and repair can be as simple as using a typical 'off the shelf' ducting tape.
- This insulation option is commonly used with radiant tube heating systems.
- The reflective properties of the foil enhance the brightness of the building's artificial lighting which may reduce the number of lights needed. The result is less power consumption.
Fabric Liner Only (no added insulation)
- The same durable fabric used on the cover of our buildings can also be used as a liner inside the building. It creates an air cavity providing a minimal increase in R-Value while providing maximum translucency to take advantage of natural light sources from the exterior.
