Tempshield Insulation Values

Specs for Post Frame Construction

Roof

The thermal values for roof applications in post frame construction were derived by testing an assembly consisting of a corrugated metal exterior, 2" x 4" purlins, TempShield® Insulation, a 2" x 6" to represent the top cord of a truss, and 1/2" wafer board. The thermal values are for both exposed insulation and applications where the insulation is covered for fire codes.

All Thermal Values are corrected for frame loss.
* Includes thermal resistance of 1.32 UP and 4.55 DOWN for interior air film.

Walls

The thermal values for RayShield® installed in the walls of post frame buildings are based on testing of an assembly consisting of corrugated metal exterior, 2" x 4" girts, RayShield™ Insulation, a 4" x 6" to represent the support beam, and 1/2" wafer board as an interior wall covering.
