Pole Barn Insulation Blankets
An unheated garage or farm building needs protection from condensation when the dew point is reached inside a metal building.
Double bubble condensation barrier consists of a radiant barrier foil top to repel heat when the sun beats down on the roofing and siding. It contains 1/4″ of bubble which is mostly air space on the inside and a white scrim condensation barrier to face the inside of the building. Sealing the building up is important for performance.
Single bubble condensation barrier is the same construction but is only 1/8″ thick. It is a little cheaper but is easier to tear during installation.
Pole Barn Insulation
For heated buildings requiring true R value a condensation barrier will not perform, nor will it meet code for most commercial applications.
For unfinished interiors our pole barn kits requiring high R values come with a dense fiber continuous blanket that is a friction fit between posts.
Installation is a simple friction fit between the posts requiring no girts or supports for the complete installation.
This insulation provides a PSK (polypropylene scrim kraft) faced condensation blanket on the inside, 6″ of dense fiber insulation between posts with no thermal breaks, and an air gap between the insulation and steel. This is a perfect environment to achieve maximum installed R value for your insulation investment.
The product is fire and moisture resistant. It doesn’t sustain fungi or bacterial growth and doesn’t promote corrosion. Made of 85% recycled material, no smell.
