Owner: Highland County State Fairgrounds, Sebring, FL
Insulation Contractor: West Coast Insulation Inc., Sebring, FL
Product Application: RetroShield® System (17,000 sq. ft.)
Completion Date: March 2011
The 20-year fairgrounds’ arena was showing it’s age, with vinyl faced insulation seams separating and sections falling down and needed a face-lift.
West Coast Insulation of Sebring, FL had installed Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System on a livestock building for the Highlands County Fairgrounds in 2010. The system performed as promised so Highlands County contracted with West Coast Insulaiton to insulate an arena building with the RetroShield® System.
Scissor lifts and scaffolding were used to reach the areas above the bleacher seats. Highlands County selected the black facing to cover the deteriorating existing insulation material. RetroShield® System has an R-12 value with the black facing, and reflects up to 97% of the radiant heat coming through the metal building’s roof.
“The livestock building has been significantly cooler in the summer months with the addition of Fi-Foil’s RetroShield® System installed on their roof and walls.”
- Jack Turner, Highland County State Fairgrounds
