A metal building insulation system requires a Vapor Barrier, Radiant barrier and Reflective Insulation because of the unique nature of metal sheeting. The sun's rays on the metal surface creates unbearable heat inside the building in the summer. Cold winter temperatures are exaggerated by the metal roof and wall sheeting making it frigid inside. Warm temperature on a cool metal roof or wall creates sweating (condensation). Prodex serves a true vapor barrier and condensation eliminator. It has a high R-value: R 16 and it prevents radiant heat transfer (primary source of heat-flow). Metal Building Insulation - Before You Buy Consider : Prodex Reviews

 
Metal building roof and wall insulation installation over purlins

Roof/Wall (New Install) Over Purlins: Use Prodex 48 Inch, Fast Action, 72 Inch, Prodex Rustic (Light or Dark), Reflective Bubble Reflective or Foil Fiberglass Vinyl.

  1. Apply double sided tape on the top of purlins (helps keep the insulation from blowing in the wind).
  2. Roll insulation perpendicular to and over the purlins. Allow insulation to sag 1 to 3 inches. If using two layers of insulation, push inside layer of insulation slightly more so a 1-3 inch air-gag exists between the layers. 
  3. Tape seams with reflective tape or use Prodex Fast Action to avoid seam tape.
  4. Attach your sheeting

Roof/Wall (New Install) Two layer Prodex - Over and Under Purlin: Use Prodex 48 Inch, Fast ActionProdex Rustic (Light or Dark) or 72 Inch.

  1. Apply double sided tape on the top of the purlins (helps keep the insulation from blowing in the wind).
  2. Roll insulation perpendicular to and over the purlins. Allow insulation to sag 1 to 3 inches.
  3. Tape seams with reflective tape or use Prodex Fast Action to avoid seam tape.
  4. Attach your sheeting
  5. Glue (super metal sealant) 2nd layer of Prodex to underside of purlins. Gluing the insulation prevents punctures which improves performance.

Existing Buildings: Roof/Wall Install (Interior/Retrofit) with or without Existing Insulation: Use Prodex 48 Inch, Fast Action, 72 Inch, Prodex Rustic (Light or Dark), Reflective Bubble Reflective or Foil Fiberglass Vinyl. Glue (super metal sealant) insulation to underside of purlins. Use double sided tape to hold the insulation while the fast drying glue sets. Gluing the insulation reducing the amount of punctures in the insulation. As a precautionary measure, use a self-tapping screw every four feet to reinforce the attachment.
