Keep radiant heat out
In warmer months, protect your metal building from the elements by reflecting radiant heat away from your building.
Prevent heat from escaping
In cooler months, maintain a more comfortable temperature by reflecting interior heat back in where it belongs.
Minimizes buildup of condensation
When seams are taped, bubble insulation doubles as a vapor barrier, preventing buildup of frost and condensation on steel panels.
A radiant barrier and vapor barrier, all in one.
Double Bubble Insulation - White/Foil - 4' X 125' (500 sq ft)
Most effective at preventing condensation in colder climates
Received the product within 4 days of me ordering it online. Very well packaged and high quality insulation. I’m well pleased with my research about this product and how it’s beneficial for my barndominium.
I am grateful for the insulation but can you stop the snow? The roll was placed carefully on my back porch where I look at it as the snow mounts. We had another foot of snow last night so I probably cannot open my back door now. Looking forward to a long thaw and being able to work.
Easy to install and does what it is advertised to do
EcoFoil white faced bubble wrap is a very well made product and so easy to work with. I used it in my workshop and it makes a world of difference. Quieter, warmer and NO MORE CONDENSATION RAIN FROM THE ROOF! Absolutely worth the added expense.
This is a great product - why is it not in the major hardware stores? I’ve used double foil products on cellar walls with great results but having a white finish makes it aesthetically better and the wife happy. Someone needs to market this product better.
Lightweight, durable, and installs easily

More About Metal Building Insulation
When insulating a metal building, a vapor barrier is an important factor. Since steel conducts heat well, a metal building naturally transfers heat energy in and out very freely. The moisture inside of an uninsulated building will easily form condensation on the inside of the steel panels when there is a significant temperature difference outside the building. Using EcoFoil Bubble Insulation resolves this problem by reflecting radiant heat to keep the temperature differential off of your buildings steel panels. All of our bubble insulations also have a perm rating of less than 1.0, which classifies them as a full vapor barrier. Being a vapor barrier prevents moisture from passing through our insulation and getting to the steel panels where it can turn into condensation.
There's a large variety of insulation options when it comes to metal buildings. The most common types of metal building insulation are radiant barrier, fiberglass insulation, rigid foam insulation and spray foam insulation. Fiberglass and other traditional insulations for metal buildings resist heat loss by conduction and convection but has little effect on radiant heat gain/loss. Radiant heat can account for up to 70% of a buildings overall heat gain or loss. This is why we recommend EcoFoil bubble insulation for most metal building applications. It's important to know that EcoFoil bubble insulation can absolutely be used in conjunction with other forms of traditional insulation for a combination to work against all 3 types of heat transfer. To get a more in depth explanation of heat transfer and how radiant barriers work, check out our How Does A Radiant Barrier Work page.
EcoFoil Bubble Insulation comes in different sized rolls and can be ordered with foil on both sides of it or foil on one side and white on the other. Both of these products will work in the exact same way. Many people choose to use the EcoFoil Double Bubble White Insulation if the product will be left exposed as it gives the metal building a nice clean, bright finish.
Why use EcoFoil in your metal building?
EcoFoil Bubble Insulation is the recommended product for use in metal buildings. It's designed to be installed in the walls and roof to help keep your building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Benefits of Bubble Insulation:
- Reflects 96% of radiant heat - Find out how a radiant barrier works
- Works in both warm and cold climates
- Keeps large temperature differentials off of your steel panels to prevent condensation from forming on them
- Bubble insulation is a full vapor barrier (when seams are taped) that blocks interior moisture from getting to steel panels, also preventing condensation
- Very durable and can't be ripped or torn by hand
- Lightweight and easy to handle
- Safe to handle and requires no special clothing or breathing equipment
