Metal Building Insulation

RHINO offers two basic insulation products. Both of these products are easily installed and offer big savings in energy costs. The first option is fiberglass insulation from 3″ to 8″ thick, providing for R-10 to R-30 energy ratings. This fiberglass insulation has a reinforced backing, eliminating the need for chicken wire support— saving you labor and money.

Pro-Value Insulation Package

The second insulation options is definitely the best choice for environmentally-conscious (and money-conscious) customers who demand superior performance with long term energy savings: RHINO’s premium Pro-Value Insulation Package. With this four part, premium grade insulation package you will reap maximum energy savings. The initial investment will be quickly recovered by saving as much as 50% on your building’s utility bills. Plus, you’ll have the added satisfaction of knowing you are doing something good for the environment by conserving energy.

Full Insulation Value

Our steel building systems creates much deeper walls than other framing materials. Because the insulation is not compressed in RHINO buildings, nearly the full R-value is realized. It is easy to see the potential increase in energy efficiency and savings by examining the chart above. RHINO Pro-Value packages are available in R-19 to R-30 for walls and R-20 to R-40 roof systems. Completely filling the purlin and girt cavities is highly recommended for optimum energy savings.

Sealed Insulation

Insulation is installed around the eave strut (as shown in the illustration right); together with standard closure strips and mastic, your metal building is well protected against harsh weather conditions. With its bright white appearance, most metal building owners opt to use the exposed interior finish of the extra strong and durable vapor barrier fabric as the primary finish. No painting, or costly maintenance is necessary. The RHINO Pro-Value vapor barrier fabric is 300% stronger than the vinyl film commonly used by many other metal building companies. (A variety of other decorator colors are available for esthetic effects.)

The RHINO Pro-Value Insulation Package provides the great benefits to the building owner:

  • Superior “in-place” R-values for both roof and wall cavities, with no insulation compression or voids.
  • Significant long-term savings on energy cost and HVAC and lighting utility investments.
  • Below the purlin vapor barrier helps to prevent condensation and brightens interiors. No stapled or gravity seams are necessary.
  • Superior sound absorption for a much quieter building. (NRC 0.75)
  • Extends building life and lowers maintenance.
  • Saves as much as 50% on energy consumption.
