Radiant Insulation


Reflective insulation systems have only come into widespread use since World War II, and some of the more visible applications have been in high-tech projects like the space program. In the past few years, reflective materials have been increasingly used in construction and are rapidly gaining acceptance. Essentially they work on the same principle as an old-fashioned glass-lined thermos bottle, by reflecting “radiant energy.”

This insulation features an aluminum-facing barrier, which reflects 97% of the sun’s radiant heat.
