The metal siding that is commonly used for exterior walls of a pole building is highly conductive in terms of heat transfer. Insulating the walls of a pole barn will help decrease heat transfer in and out of the building while creating an R-Value and a vapor barrier. Reflective Bubble Insulation is one of the easiest most effective ways to insulate pole barn walls. It decreases heat transfer by reflecting radiant heat and forms a thermal barrier.
Install EcoFoil wall insulation in your new or existing post frame building
Foil bubble insulation can be installed before or after the wall steel is installed but in new construction it is typically installed as the wall steel goes up. Retrofit installation can be done from the inside on existing buildings that have no insulation yet installed.
IMPORTANT: Remember to allow air space when going over the top of purlins. It is the air space that permits EcoFoil to work to its maximum effectiveness of blocking radiant heat.
