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 BlueTex™ is installed, we determine the ways it improved the problem and, in some cases, even some unexpected benefits that came from the installation.
Background: A man cave hangout in North Carolina needed a way to keep the building comfortable year round and stop condensation from forming inside after the building had been in use. The customer is a veteran and he uses this space for hobby and recreation, so keeping the inside nice and clean and free of moisture was important.
Type of Structure: metal-framed metal building
Location: North Carolina
Install Date: July 2022
Goal: Cool down the space in summer and help keep the cold air in when portable A/C was in use; stop condensation from forming in winter when the metal got cold and people were inside hanging out.
Product used: BlueTex™ 2mm Pro 62" Wide
Install Details: The BlueTex™ was installed vertically (up and down) the framing inside the metal building. The customer also used BlueTex™ inside his roll up garage door. He used our double-sided tape and trimmed off the excess.
Finish: The foil side faces the exterior metal to block radiant heat gain during summer, and the glossy white side faces in to the shop for a finished and brighter look inside the building. BlueTex™ is easy to wipe clean and can even be painted! Plus, the 2mm Pro created a new interior surface that can stay above dew point to control condensation on those cold nights.
Results: This customer was able to keep his space comfortable as needed, when needed by using BlueTex™ inside the building.
