Mini Storage Unit Installation Instructions
Mini Storage Insulation
Pre-fabricated mini storage units are widely used around the world for extra storage space of belongings such as furnishings and collectibles. Therefore, it is vital that these storage units are kept dry and that temperatures are uniform inside. Most mini storage buildings are constructed entirely of metal components including the roofing panels. Metal roofing has a tendency to form large amounts of condensation when hot and cold air meet at the roof of the building. The best way to prevent condensation in metal buildings is to install EcoFoil Bubble Insulation. This insulation consists of polyethylene bubbles, sandwiched between sheets of radiant barrier. The layers of bubble form a thermal break while the sheets of highly reflective foil block radiant heat transfer, keeping the inside temperature fairly uniform.
