Available Products


Laminated fiberglass insulation is a widely used form of insulation for metal buildings. Laminated fiberglass insulation blanket is used in a variety of installation methods; however, it is typically installed between the structural steel and sheeting. Hot melt adhesive lamination provides a smoother finish, allowing blanket to be installed with appropriate droop, while still providing a clean interior appearance.

**The above flame spread and smoke development rating was determined in accordance with ASTM E84. This standard is used solely to measure and describe properties of materials and products in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions. This numerical flame spread is not intended to reflect hazards presented by this or any other material under actual
fire conditions.
NOTE: Condensation blanket is NOT sold as a thermal barrier. The insulating
value of the product is negligible and should NOT be utilized in conditioned
or semi-conditioned buildings where thermal performance of any degree is

**Excludes white vinyl faced fiberglass.
