Pole Barn Insulation
Pole barn or post frame buildings are typically constructed using wood framing with steel roofing and siding. Steel roofing is a highly conductive material in terms of heat transfer. In a non-insulated pole barn there will be a large amount of heat transferred in and out. During hot summer months when the sun is beating down on the roof, most of that heat will penetrate into the building. In the winter, any heat created inside of the building will easily escape.
EcoFoil Bubble Insulation creates a barrier that reflects 96% of the radiant heat from the sun's rays. EcoFoil's highly reflective surface provides superior protection against radiant heat and gives a nice clean, finished appearance to the interior of the building.
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 White Bubble Insulation if the product will be left exposed as it gives the pole barn a nice clean, bright finish.
