Conserve Energy By Using Insulation in Your Pre-Engineered Buildings
Conserve energy by using Insulations in your metal buildings
Why is insulation required?
Insulation material is attached or placed within walls or roof to prevent the
Insulation also helps to reduce the amount of noise that enters or escapes from the insulated area and reduces rain induced noise from the metal roof.
The effectiveness of an insulating material is measured using a 'U-value'.
BenefitsWall and Roof insulation makes it easier to heat and cool the space and save money on power bills
Also, depending on the type of insulation used, there may also be a significant reduction in noise within the space, since many types of wall insulation have acoustical properties.
By insulating one can even reduce the emission of harmful gasses in air. Thus reducing toxic vapour inside the building
Insulation recommend by Interarch Building Products
Glass wool (fiberglass)Made from melted glass spun into a flexible mat of fine fibers
Available in low densities and roll form with the reflective vapor barrier for convenient installation under metal roofs
Rock woolMade from mineral rock melted at high temperatures and spun into a mat of fine fibers.
Available in higher densities
Suitable for double skin roofing or roofing requiring walkable insulation
Other characteristics are similar to glass wool. Glass wool and rock wool are together referred to as ‘mineral wool’ products. Due to their potential to irritate the skin and the upper respiratory tract, full protective clothing, including gloves and a face mask, should be worn during installation.
