Each case study offers unique conditions that make it especially interesting to discuss. In the case study we first identify the problem and the expected outcome. Then, after the metal building Insulation is installed, we determine the ways it improved the problem and, in some cases, even some unexpected benefits that came from the installation.
Background: This customer was working for a church who met inside pre-engineered metal building that had old, falling down fiberglass batt insulation inside their metal building and a giant HVAC duct mounted in the ceiling. The customer needed way to clean up the inside roofline, contain the old insulation that was fallen down, a vapor barrier for the metal building insulation and to help when they cool the building, and brighten up the space.
Type of Structure: red-iron pre-engineered steel building
Install Date: February 2023
Goal: Contain the old falling down metal building insulation, cool the venue down without overworking the A/C, and maintain a nice-looking interior finish.
Install Details: The building was framed in red-iron and had a corrugated metal roof above them. The BlueTex™ Supreme 6mm was installed so the white faced down, toward the interior, while the foil side faced up, toward the roof. The insulation was attached directly to the bottom of the purlins using the BlueTex™ EasyClip™ insulation install system for red iron buildings.
Finish: The ends of the pins on the EasyClip™ were snipped off and then the BlueTex™ was sealed and seamed with the 3" white vapor barrier seam tape.
Results: Take a look at the dramatic difference in the before and after!
