Semi-Rigid Fiberglass Board

Product Description

Insul-SHIELD is a series of semi-rigid or rigid thermal and acoustical fiber glass insulating boards for custom curtain wall applications. They are made from inorganic glass fibers bonded with a thermosetting binder. The insulating boards are typically used where framing is not present. Coated black Insul-SHIELD is available in rolls.

 

 

Applications

  • New and Retrofit Construction – Insul-SHIELD insulation provides thermal and acoustical insulating values for exterior curtain wall cavities, parking structures, mechanical rooms, theaters, casinos and other commercial construction applications. The insulating boards are typically used where framing is not present. (I/S 100 is often used in shaft wall applications.)
  • Custom Curtain Wall Construction – Exterior curtain wall cavities – Insul-SHIELD is exceptionally well suited to curtain wall construction in terms of both installation and performance. When used in the exterior envelope of steel-framed buildings, it helps reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. The result is an attractive, efficient thermal enclosure that significantly reduces the cost of air treatment, cuts long-term energy expenses and improves life-cycle costs.
  • Standard Metal Panel Construction – Insul-SHIELD offers a variety of sizes, densities and facings for on-the-job or in-the-shop insulation of metal panel buildings such as power plants, assembly buildings, sports arenas and other commercial facilities.
  • General Construction – A versatile insulation, Insul-SHIELD is also an ideal thermal barrier for masonry or concrete structures such as shopping centers, banks and many other types of low-rise commercial or institutional buildings. It is also ideal for use in parking garage ceilings.
  • Theaters – With a state-of-the-art acrylic-coated surface, Insul-SHIELD Coated Black is an ideal backdrop for theater screens. The opaque surface absorbs both sound and light, eliminating concern about back-scatter into the viewing arena.
