Product details:

EcoFoil Single Bubble Foil Insulation is primarily used in pole barnsmetal buildingsbasement wallscrawl spaces, and storage units located in moderate climates. Single bubble insulation combines the heat-shielding properties of solid radiant barrier with a layer of polyethylene bubbles, which acts as a built-in air gap that reduces contact between temperatures on either side of the product. The layer of bubbles effectively combats the formation of frost and condensation that can occur when temperature differences are extreme on either side of the material. It's very thin (approximately 1/8" thick), lightweight, and installs easily with minimal equipment. Our white/foil variety offers the same benefits as foil/foil, but with a white finish that faces towards your finished space, providing a more "finished" look.

Important - You must tape any seams on the insulation. By doing this, the product acts as one sheet and maintains the moisture barrier. EcoFoil Single Bubble Foil Insulation is not to be used for under slab applications as the radiant barrier product is exposed. We offer a specific EcoFoil Under Slab Insulation where the radiant barrier is encapsulated between two layers of bubbles.

R-Value Of Radiant Barriers

Rather than rating by R-value, all radiant barrier products are measured by their reflective and emissive properties. EcoFoil single bubble insulation is 96% reflective and 4% emissive, meaning the product only allows 4% of radiant heat to pass through. 

There are some companies out there posting big R-Value numbers for their radiant barriers, but those numbers are rating the entirety of the system—including the product, air gap, and other building materials. In reality, most radiant barriers by themselves have little to no R-Value. If you need to satisfy a building code of a specified R-Value, we recommend the use of a traditional insulation in conjunction with our radiant barrier in order to meet code. For more information on R-values, see our How It Works page or contact a member of our friendly service team via chat, by calling (888) 349-3645, or using the form here.

Very high quality - Easy to work with

I have high expectations that this will help to improve the comfort in my home during the beastly summers. The material itself seems of high quality, is easy to work with and the 4 ft size is very manageable with just one person doing the work.

Great heat resistance!

I have a built a couple of barns over the years and generally only use this insulation on the roof to eliminate condensation (which it does completely). This time I decided to install on the sides of the barn behind the metal. What a difference it made in temperature. Where the sun hits the sides there is a temperature difference that is night and day. Great bang for your buck as far as insulation prices are concerned. I live in Georgia and would recommend this to anyone building an enclosed barn in the south!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose Single Bubble or Double Bubble Reflective Insulation?

Generally speaking, you should install single bubble in moderate, warmer climates (Southern US). Single Bubble Reflective Insulation will help prevent the formation of frost and condensation when temperatures are cold on one side of the material, and warm on the other. The larger these temperature differences are, the greater the risk of condensation. If you’re concerned about condensation and would like to maximize protection against it, choose Double Bubble Reflective Insulation.

What do the bubbles do?

The layer of bubbles provides a thermal break between hot and cold air, and helps eliminate condensation from forming in your structure. Single Bubble has a single layer of bubbles and is typically used in the southern states where temperature differences inside vs. outside your structure aren't as extreme as northern states with harsher winters.

How much tape do I need?

1 roll of tape will be needed for every 500 sq ft of reflective insulation. It's important to tape the seams between adjoining sheets—never use tape to attach the product directly to your structure. Taping the seams creates a vapor barrier when installed properly, and helps ensure the reflective properties of the insulation.


Which tape do I choose?

Should I choose a white finish or a foil finish?

Some customers prefer the white finish as a visual preference. Both White and Foil finishes reflect radiant heat equally well.

How do I install Single Bubble Insulation?

Installation methods will vary, depending on your application. If your structure has exposed studs, the material can be stapled with a staple gun. If you have nothing to staple the product to, choose a spray adhesive like Spray-Lock Multi-Purpose Eco-Friendly Spray Adhesive. More information on installation methods can be found under the "Shop by Application" tab in the main menu at the top of this page.
