Perforated Radiant Barrier

Sq. Footage Price/Sq Ft Price
Perforated radiant barrier reflects heat back at the source instead of absorbing it like traditional fiberglass insulation. As the name states, perforated radiant barrier has tiny perforations that provide breath-ability and moisture vapor to escape. The perforations in perforated radiant barrier prevent condensation buildup making perforated radiant barrier foil insulation a great choice for attic insulation.

Radiant barrier foil insulation has two properties that give it supreme performance against the transfer of radiant heat:

  • Reflectivity - Both sides of radiant barrier consist of metalized aluminum which reflects or blocks nearly 96% of radiant heat from transferring through the barrier.
  • Emissivity - The emissivity of a material refers to how much heat is absorbed and radiated from its surface. The natural elements of metalized aluminum foil insulation result in a very low emmitance of heat energy.
