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