It Is Easily Installed, Will Not Trap Moisture And Is Insect And Bird Resistant.
The Primary Function Of Arctic Fox Crawl Space Insulation And Vapor Barrier Is To Reduce The Transfer Of Radiant Energy And Act As A Breathable Vapor Barrier To Keep Moisture Out. The Materials Used In Manufacturing Arctic Fox Crawl Space Insulation And Vapor Barrier Are Polyethylene And Polished Aluminum. Our Standard Product Consists Of A Micro-Cell Polyethylene Core That Will Not Absorb Moisture, Is Flexible, Light Weight, Extremely Strong And The Foam Core Maintains Its Integrity When Punctured By Fasteners. The Exterior Surfaces Are Covered With Polished Aluminum. Our Patented Arctic Fox Crawl Space Insulation And Vapor Barrier Does Have Tested “R” Values But More Importantly, It’s Aluminum Surfaces Have An Emissivity Of 0.03, Which Equates To 97% Of Radiant Heat Being Stopped And Reflected Back To Its Source.
Most Common Or Conventional Insulations Do Their Best To Slow Down The Heat Transfer, But No Matter How Thick They Are, They Have Limited Ability To Reflect Radiant Energy. In Fact, They Can Act Like A Battery Storing Heat, Then Re-Radiating It. Mass Insulations Can Also Store Moisture Which Further Reduces Their Capabilities To Resist The Transfer Of Thermal Energy. For These Reasons, By Mid-Afternoon In The Summer, Buildings Using Only Mass Type Insulation Can Become Unbearably Hot. Air Conditioning Systems Often Fail To Meet The Demand Of Extreme Summer Heat. Heating Systems Work Hard During Winter As Precious Energy Escapes Into The Crawl Space. Both Conditions Put Additional Strains On Utility Companies And Your Budget.
By Addressing Only ”R” Values, Manufactures And Consumers Have Ignored The Major Problem Facing Insulation Today. You Guessed It … Radiant Heat Transfer. By Using Arctic Fox Crawl Space Insulation And Vapor Barrier, You Can Reflect The Heat Back To The Source.
