What Level of Insulation Are You Planning for Your Pole Building?

Level 1 Insulation
rFOIL® Radiant Moisture Barrier Insulation

The Minimum Insulation Needed for Your Pole Building

rFOIL® Reflective Insulation is an effective energy barrier that can greatly reduce the transfer of radiant heat through siding and roofing. This double layer of polyethylene bubbles (double bubble) is bonded to and sandwiched between a radiant barrier metalized foil and a white polyethylene sheet. It can be taped to purlins, stapled to rafters or studs, or rolled out onto existing shingles prior to installation of metal roofing or siding panels.

At a minimum, rFoil should be installed under the roof steel to protect against condensation and sweating. It can also be added under the side steel for a full building wrap.

Documented R Values Are:

  • Ceilings: Up to R4
  • Walls: Up to R4


Level 2 Insulation
Sol-R-Eclipse Commercial Grade Reflective Insulation

Eliminating temperature spikes, up or down and keeping temperatures at a more moderate level

Sol-R-Eclipse is a patent-pending reflective insulation that delivers the highest R-Value available from a reflective insulation on the market today using the latest ATSM testing. A market leader in innovation and technology, Sol-R-Eclipse cuts the cold of winter and the heat of summer. Because of its low profile, Sol-R-Eclipse can be installed directly under the metal roofing and siding. This is a perfect solution if you have no plans on fully finishing the interior of your pole building but want to have better control of the temperatures inside.

Documented R Values Are:

  • Ceilings: R10.7
  • Walls: R9.45
