A pole building insulation system requires a vapor barrier, reflective insulation and radiant barrier. Why? The sun's rays on the metal surface creates unbearable heat inside a pole barn 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 Total 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). Pole Barn Insulation - What to Look For  Prodex Reviews

 
Prodex insulation installed in pole barn over rafters

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 the framing (helps keep the insulation from blowing in the wind).
  2. Roll insulation perpendicular to and over the frames.
  3. To improve performance, push insulation in to create air-gap (1-3 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.
  4. Tape seams with reflective tape or use Prodex Fast Action to avoid seam tape.
  5. Attach your sheeting

  1. Apply double sided tape on the top of the framing (helps keep the insulation from blowing in the wind).
  2. Roll insulation perpendicular to and over the frames.
  3. Tape seams with reflective tape or use Prodex Fast Action to avoid seam tape.
  4. Attach your sheeting
  5. Staple, screw or glue (super metal sealant) 2nd layer of insulation to underside of purlins. Run the insulation perpendicular the purlins - That way a 48 Inch wide roll will work regardless of the width between your purlins.
