Today’s energy codes have changed the way we insulate metal building systems. The experts at IDI can help recommend the correct insulation system and products to economically meet your local energy code and increase the energy efficiency of your building.
All of our MBI salespeople have been training in the benefits of each insulation system and have the ability to assist with COMcheck reviews.
The opportunities to become a metal building insulation specialist have never been greater than today. The various “High-R” systems such as Simple Saver, Energy Craft, and Long Tab Banded each has a place in new and retrofit situations.
IDI can also assist their customers with insulation facing repair. A better insulation facing can help to reduce energy costs, increase light reflectivity, and provide a better workplace for employees
Metal building systems can become highly energy efficient structures by filling the purlin (or girt) cavities with low-cost fiberglass insulation. This can be accomplished with a fabric liner system (Simple Saver, MB Safety Liner or Energy Craft) or with a Long Tab Banded System.
Continuous insulation has become more affordable in metal building systems. The use of fire-rated polyiso insulation can provide an energy-efficient, attractive wall system.
With the recent code changes, we are seeing “air barrier” requirements. Currently, MBMA is conducting testing and properly insulated and sealed metal buildings are performing very well. If you or your customer has a question on how to create a quality air barrier, please give IDI a call.
All IDI metal building insulation salespeople are trained on COMCheck, local energy codes, product benefits, and installation methods. Our goal is to be your trusted advisor when selecting an insulation system. In the coming months, we will be creating several topic-specific instructional videos to enhance your product installation knowledge.
