RetroShield® System

Metal Building Insulation System for Retrofit & New Construction

Retro Shield reflective insulation

The RetroShield® System, developed primarily for the metal building industry, is the ideal solution for retrofitting and upgrading insulation systems in new and existing metal buildings. The exclusive system incorporates Fi-Foil's RBI Shield, which features our revolutionary reflective insulation technology and Clip & Pin components. The only system available on the market that unites these two components, RetroShield® provides unmatched energy performance and ease of installation for reduced construction and operating costs.

The Clip & Pin components easily attach to the lip of the purlin to secure the reflective insulation. The result is a simple installation that greatly reduces expensive labor costs, while eliminating the need for additional framing or other alterations to complete the retrofit process.

RetroShield offers maximum energy-efficiency for any roof or wall retrofit application. The reflective insulation technology provides high reflectivity and low emissivity for superior thermal performance.

FAQ's

Condensation will occur on any surface when the temperature of the surface is at or below the "dew-point temperature" for an air-water mixture. The dew-point temperature depends on the dry-bulb temperature (measured with an ordinary thermometer) and the relative humidity in the space next to the surface. The dew-point temperature is less than or equal to the dry-bulb temperature. The two temperatures are equal when the relative humidity is 100%. Some examples of dew-point temperature:

As you can see, condensation can occur when the outside temperature is cold. Insulation below a roof deck will have an inside surface temperature that is above the roof surface temperature. The actual temperature of the inside surface depends on the amount of thermal resistance between the roof and the inside surface. The higher the resistance, the closer the interior surface temperature will be to the inside air temperature. Maintaining a reasonable inside relative humidity (less than 60%) is an important factor in preventing condensation.

Yes. The ASHRAE Handbook values are a subset of data from the National Bureau of Standards (NBS).
