Project Solution | RetroShield® | For Hot and Humid Climates

The 20-year fairgrounds’ arena was showing it’s age, with vinyl-faced insulation seams separating and sections falling down and needing a face-lift. Project Solution: West Coast Insulation of Sebring, FL, had installed FI-FOIL® insulation system RetroShield® on a livestock building for the Highlands County Fairgrounds in 2010. The system performed as promised so Highlands County contracted with West Coast Insulation to insulate an arena building with the RetroShield® System. Scissor lifts and scaffolding reached 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 RetroShield® System installed on their roof and walls.” – Jack Turner, Highland County State Fairgrounds.
