More about EcoFoil Yurt Insulation

At EcoFoil, we are all about innovation and helping people live a more eco-friendly life. There is an increasing interest in alternative housing and we are proud to help with this. Like tiny houses, many people are choosing yurt homes because of their low cost, portability, and sustainability. A Yurt, also known as a Ger, originated in Mongolia roughly 1,000 years ago. Nomads in central Asia lived in round structures that consisted of wooden accordion-like frames covered with layers of felt and a canvas shell. The roof supports rise up from the wall at an angle and connect to a circle opening in the center. This opening can be opened or closed depending on the weather.

EcoFoil Bubble Insulation can be installed in walls, roof, and under the deck of permanent yurts. In addition to reflecting 96% of radiant heat, it is unaffected by moisture and will serve as a barrier to vapor and prevents condensation. You can even use EcoFoil Under Slab Insulation to insulate the floor of a temporary yurt. Reflective insulation will keep your yurt cool in the summer and warm in the winter by reflecting heat back to its source. You will benefit from insulating your yurt whether you are camping for the night or living in it for many years.
