State-of-the-Art Reflective Foam Insulation Rolls for Metal and Post-frame Buildings.

Astro-Armour is our latest reflective insulation product to advance the technology for reflective materials by incorporating a high-density foam and UV inhibitors within an effective reflective material. Astro-Armour reflective insulation rolls can keep 95 percent of radiant heat out of commercial and farm buildings of all kinds- whether metal or post-frame. Reducing heat-transfer results in more comfortable interior spaces and reduced energy costs.

Astro-Armour is the perfect insulation for animal confinement buildings as well, preventing indoor ambient air temperatures from raising above outdoor ambient temperatures.  On top of great performance, this new material provides a white surface that can be cleaned to maintain a pleasing interior visual, and it boasts superior strength. It won't rip or tear like other materials and will hold up against pesky animal nesters. Astro-Armour will also mitigate condensation issues when properly installed.

 

Astro-Armour is made with high density polyethylene foam sandwiched between a white woven polyethylene scrim with U.V. and thermal inhibitors on one side, and a highly reflective metalized film on the other side. The reflective side stops 95 percent of the summer radiant heat from entering buildings, and holds heat inside during the cold temperatures. The white side gives your area a nice clean look and can be high pressure washed.

Thoughtfully engineered for ease of use, Astro-Armour is available in 4' x 125' and 6' x 125' rolls. We offer square edge or quick seam release tape edging options.

For new construction or retrofit of commercial post frame or metal buildings, Astro-Armour reflective foam insulation rolls are the newest and best insulation material on the market.

Pre-Engineered Metal and Post-Frame Applications

    1. AstroArmour works best when there is a 3/4" air space on each side of the insulation. (Larger air space is fine but a smaller one reduces its thermal effectiveness.)
    2. AstroArmour Reflective Insulation should always be installed on the inside of the structure.
    3. AstroArmour will not cure existing problems. Leaking roofs, rot or mold situations or other moisture or structural problems should be corrected before installation.
    4. Any deteriorated wiring should be replaced prior to installing AstroArnour.
    5. AstroArmour should be at least 3' from any heat-producing fixtures, chimneys, blowers, etc. NEVER install AstroArmour directly above lighting or other heat-producing devices.
    6. Always turn off all electricity in the area when installing AstroArmour Foil Insulation.
