US Energy Products / South Beach Wholesale
Click to enlarge the image of the US Energy website. The text is taken from this website. They obviously didn't proof read it. It reads: "Read Prodex Insulation reviews top left of page."
Look at the photo of Prodex Total Insulation next to the add to sell AES 1200 sq. ft. If you have a decent product to offer, why not use its image and product information?
Think about the level of dishonesty required to buy insulation and resell it by pasting in the product names, descriptions, test results, pictures and benefits of a completely different product. That's EXACTLY what South Beach Wholesale (also owner of US Energy Products) has done. These companies copied all and parts of our product names, descriptions, test results, benefits and images from the websites of Prodex/Insulation4Less. Countless people made purchases thinking they were buying Prodex Total or its equivalent. Everyone in the industry recognizes that Prodex is the standard bearer. Pretending to sell Prodex or its equivalent is their meal ticket to profits.
Click to enlarge the snapshot of a recent text communication with them. Notice they wrote: "Ok, we removed Prodex.” That's an admission that they STOLE our product name and used it to sell you a different product. They also wrote: "We buy Reflective Insulation." What reflective insulation?
We’ve been around the block with these people several times. They remove one name and grab another. They remove a photo and gabs another, etc.
The SmartShield advertisement (image begins with "Thermal Insulation Products...) uses the 11 feature graphics of Prodex. It brags about their product being 99% aluminum - That's fine in other countries with less stringent fire codes but not in the USA. Over 15 years ago the USA required the replacement of aluminum and other metals used on the surface of insulation. The metal had to be replaced with a complex compound of reflective materials for fire safety. When you combine the fact that it can tear and flake, it's clear that aluminum is not ideal for construction use.
- Aluminum TEARS
- Aluminum FLAKES.
- Aluminum does NOT pass fire codes.
- Insulation rolls with an aluminum surface, are for packaging use only - NOT construction.
In summary, safety, tearing and flaking, are the primary reasons to avoid aluminum in construction applications.
AD included in Product Name (AD3, AD5, AD10)
You'll find a snap shot to the right with "AD 5MM Thick" written next to the insulation roll. AD is group of less expensive insulation rolls (ad3, ad5 and ad10) that we produce at Prodex. Because it's made of aluminum, it's sold only in the USA for packaging applications. It should not be used in construction applications in the USA.
Because "AD" is prominent on the Prodex site, people use the name on their products and even include "AD" in the url (web address) of their product pages. AD is prominent on the Prodex site because it's internationally sold. AD is acceptable in some countries for construction use - NOT the USA.
We have created a Prodex Insulation roll for the USA. It's called Prodex Total Plus. Prodex Total Plus Insulation is stronger, safer and has higher test values. It is the only Prodex product that should be used for construction applications in the USA
