Solarguard is a revolutionary new reflective insulation product that combines a high-performance fiberglass core with durable reinforced facing materials on the exposed side and a reflective foil film on the back side. These materials used in Solarguard offer the very best fire performance of any reflective insulation material in the market today and top thermal performance. Most other reflective insulation products use either a bubble pack or foam core. These are plastic materials that can't offer the superior fire performance or exceptional interior appearance of Solarguard.
Insulation reduces the amount of heat transfer into or out of a building, whether it is a post frame building, metal building or your home. The second law of thermodynamics teaches us that HEAT goes to COLD. This transfer of heat to cold occurs by one of the following modes of heat transfer: CONDUCTION, CONVECTION or RADIATION. Fiberglass insulation alone only addresses the conduction and convection modes of heat transfer. Solarguard uses a fiberglass core to slow heat transfer through conduction and convection but also has a highly reflective foil backer film to address the RADIATION mode of heat transfer. Use of the right insulation product assures comfort, reduced energy consumption and improved condensation control.
If you're a home builder, you can build faster for less. An insulation professional will save you time on the front end and back end of a job. Experienced installers can insulate your homes faster than framers or general contractors, so you can keep your craftsmen focused on what they do best. Plus, you can be sure the job will be done the right the first time, eliminating callbacks. A professional contractor's expertise can help you in other ways too. A pro has access to extensive information about codes OSHA requirements and the most effective application techniques. They're not only familiar with how to insulate a variety of framing and construction techniques but how to provide proper ventilation around attic insulation to prevent structural damage.
Inch for inch there is no better roofing system than polyurethane foam. Spray applied polyurethane foam is seamless, self-flashing, lightweight and extremely durable. SWD’s polyurethane roofing foam delivers a high R-Value of 6.8 per inch which helps provide building owners excellent insulation and reduced heating and cooling costs.
SWD’s roof coatings can increase the reflectivity of any roof (including foam, concrete, asphalt, metal) and improve the energy performance of any building. Increased reflectivity not only reduces energy consumption, but it also reduces the ‘heat island’ effect of any structure.
SWD’s foam roofing solutions often allow for building owners to strengthen, waterproof or upgrade their existing roofs without the costly tear-off of the existing surface. This helps save time, money, and reduces landfill space. Architects, roofers and homeowners are discovering the advantages of foam roofing everyday.
