+ RADIANT BARRIER
Radient Barrier technology was developed by NASA
over 40 years ago toprotect astronauts in the Apollo program
from temperatures that ranged from 250 degrees above zero
to 460 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. This reflective insulation
has been applied to every spacecraft since then, including
unmanned spacecraft with delicate instruments that need
protection from temperature extremes.The same technology
is also appliedto astronaut’s space suits, protecting them during
How Much Money Can I Expect To Save
On My Utility Bills If I Install Attic Blanket In My Attic?
Based on a study performed by the Tennessee Valley Authority, savings
averaged approximately 17%. The radiant barrier placed on top of the attic floor insulation was the best summer performer. It consistantly showed heat flux reductions compared to the non-radiant barrier test case of about 40% for almoist all ambient temperatures and even showed savings (17%) during mild temperature and night summer conditions.
The University of Nevada Las Vegas conducted independent research and discovered that radiant barrier insulation can reduce energy consumption by up to 35% during peak hours in the summer and by 29% over extended periods.
Our radiant barrier foil insulation products are made from 99% pure aluminum making them the best at blocking 97% of the radiant heat that attempts to enter building structures.
