Insul-Barrier: A Better Way To Insulate

Insul-Barrier is designed as a crawl space foundation insulation. An un-insulated crawl space foundation can result in heat loss from the living space above. Insul-Barrier reduces heating requirements and prevents water vapor condensation problems by creating a thermal break between the crawl space interior and the earth around the foundation. Because Insul-Barrier uses patented reflective technology, it is able to control all modes of heat transfer: convection, conduction and radiation. By controlling these three modes of heat transfer, Insul-Barrier greatly reduces the heat loss generated from a cold, damp crawl space.

Vapor Barrier
Insul-Barrier is a high performance crawl space vapor barrier designed to prevent moisture migration from the soil into the crawl space. Insul-Barrier helps guard against:
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Allergens
  • Fungus
  • Radon, gas
  • Methane gas
  • Heat loss due to damp insulation
  • Wood rot
  • Overall degradation of the crawl space
The bright white surface of Insul-Barrier gives the crawl space a clean and refreshing look while providing the owner with a Class A vapor barrier.
