LOW-E Reflective Insulation
Products are manufactured by using both post-consumer and new materials, and can be incorporated throughout all facets of the building industry. The insulation can be used as a “stand alone” product, or in conjunction with mass insulation’s to create greater R-Values.
Manufactured from non-porous material composed of air trapped in tiny closed cells, providing for an excellent thermal break and vapor barrier – in one single insulation.
When used with a mass insulation system, the addition of LOW-E Reflective Insulation will increase insulation system performance, by helping to achieve ASHREA 90.1 and LEED building envelope requirements.
Green Building Advantages
LOW-E meets “Green Building” standards by increasing the thermal efficiency of the building envelope. Refer to the LEED rating system for individual products and applications.
Thermal Performance of a Hybrid Metal Building Insulation Assembly
A metal building insulation assembly produced by Environmentally Safe Products was tested in accordance with ASTM C 1363 in the Large Scale Climate Simulator at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This hybrid system consisted of conventional fiberglass blanket insulation with ESP reflective insulation installed above the blanket insulation to form two reflective air spaces between the blanket insulation and the panels of a standing seam roof.
