STEEL BUILDING INSULATION FACTS AND FIGURES

Insulating your steel building is one of the most important steps to protecting your investment and extending the life of your steel building. Proper insulation will not only make your building more comfortable to be in, but it will also prevent the build-up of rust producing condensation.

WHY SHOULD I INSULATE MY STEEL BUILDING?

Adding insulation to your steel building kit will protect your building from moisture condensing on the inside of the wall panels. This moisture can cause damage to the items inside the building as well as the building itself.

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF INSULATION FOR A STEEL BUILDING?

There are many insulation options to choose from, depending on your needs. From fiberglass blankets to loose-fill insulation – there is an option to meet the needs of your steel building. We’ll go over the differences of the most popular choices below.

BENEFITS OF INSULATING YOUR STEEL BUILDING

  •  Prevent moisture build-up and corrosion
  • Conserve energy by reducing heating and cooling needs
  • Regulate temperature by reducing heat loss
  • Prevents nesting rodents, birds, and other pests
  • Increase sound absorption for loud workshops
  • Prevents condensation and rust
  • Prevents radiant heat transfer
  • Does not promote mold and mildew growth
  • Protects your investment while adding value to your property

INSULATION R-VALUE

The r-value of insulation relates to its ability to reduce heat transfer. Or, put more simply, it indicates the amount of heat that can flow through the insulation. Higher R-Values indicate more effective insulating properties. Your typical steel building kit insulation ranges from R-7 to R-30 depending on your climate.

 

STEEL BUILDING VAPOR BARRIERS

Your building’s vapor barrier is an important factor in reducing the amount of moisture that builds up on the metal panels of your building. Depending on the climate where your building is located, a vapor barrier may be enough. However, in combination with insulation, you will experience a significant difference in temperature regulation.

 

CALCULATING HOW MUCH STEEL BUILDING INSULATION YOU NEED

We follow a specific mathematical formula to determine the exact amount of insulation needed to fully protect your steel building product. No need to worry about the finer details of calculating your insulation needs because our expert team of steel building specialists will calculate the exact square footage needed to cover the walls and ceilings of your building.

REFLECTED FOIL INSULATION

This style of metal building insulation works as a radiant barrier to repel the heat given off by the sun that works to cause a building to overheat. Most effective in very sunny environments reflected foil insulation is extremely simple to install with staples, glue, or nails.

FIBERGLASS INSULATION

Coming in with the least expensive price point, fiberglass blanket insulation is the most traditional insulation option. The rolls are often covered with a more attractive facing which improves the moisture reduction and is nicer to look at.

INSULATED PANELS

This option is created by sandwiching an insulating foam core between two formed metal panels. While this solution is generally more expensive than traditional insulation, metal panels can reduce the need for traditional rigid board or fiberglass insulation.

SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

This polymer, combined with a foaming agent is stored as a liquid and sprayed into every nook and cranny throughout a building. Particularly effective for insulating against very cold weather spray foam insulation is an excellent option for more northern locations.

RIGID BOARD INSULATION

This insulation option has a well-earned reputation as the most popular choice for steel building owners across the country. Rigid boards are an extremely effective way to insulate a metal building as well as dampen exterior noise.

INTERESTING NOTE: INSULATION CAN EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR STEEL BUILDING KIT BY DECADES DUE BY PREVENTING MOISTURE BUILDUP AND CORROSION.
