Choosing The Right Insulation System For Prefabricated Metal Buildings and Pole Barns

    Posted in Blog        

Insulation is needed in all metal buildings. When the right kind of insulation is used and when it’s installed correctly, it’s nothing but beneficial to the owner of that building.

Prefabricated metal buildings and pole barns especially need insulation added. These types of buildings are manufactured in patterned parts or sections beforehand and made for quick assembly. Because these buildings are constructed to be built as fast as possible, there can sometimes be problems if the right insulation isn’t used or installed properly or if it’s not installed at all.

Building owners can see problems with heat escaping through purlins in the winter and then heat entering through the purlins in the summer. Some prefabricated metal buildings use certain insulation and installation methods that compress the insulation, which usually leads to condensation and a shortened roof life. No metal building owner wants to have any of these issues.

CMI can help metal building owners steer clear of these problems with their Retrofit insulation system. This system is simple to use, requiring only one person to install the insulation instead of a whole crew, which saves you money on labor. CMI uses formaldehyde free fiberglass insulation that’s laminated with a smooth, heavy-duty facing. The insulation is rolled up and then rolled out between the purlins where only one person is needed to securely fasten the purlin clips, which keeps the insulation in place. This Retrofit system is easy to install and easy on your wallet.

Adding insulation to your metal building or pole barn is the best thing you can do for your building and for yourself. It’s going to save you money in energy costs, prevent condensation in your metal building and give you a more comfortable work environment that will increase productivity. Choosing CMI and their Retrofit system is the best choice you can make for your prefabricated metal building or pole barn.
