Low-E Insulation can be used in virtually any application where environmental control is required. Here you will find the most common application for Low-E used in construction but Low-E is used across a range of industries from Marine and Automotive, to fridges - freezers and food storage bags. It is even used to manufacture SailShade® Roman Blinds which are used in Historical Listed Buildings where double glazing is not an option. If you have any questions about the suitability of Low-E for your application please contact us.
Reflective insulation products depend on several things to obtain their R-value: the E value of the aluminium surface, the R value of the core material and the size of the airspaces facing the aluminum.
A 25mm airspace facing the aluminium is ideal because convection cannot move air in this small a space. Keeping this in mind, you can see the importance of making certain that an airspace is maintained facing the aluminium on both sides if at all possible. The airspace also works as an insulating thermal break. It would be a serious mistake to ignore U value requirements, just as it would be to insulate solely against radiant energy when high R-values are required. That is why you will find many applications in these guidelines that use combination systems, which include Low-E and a secondary insulation.
