rFOIL™ 3800 Series Reflective House Wrap

rFOIL™ 3800 Series Reflective House Wrap

rFOIL™ Reflective House Wrap is the next generation in house wrap technology. This revolutionary new product offers the construction industry a strong weather-resistant barrier with the added benefit of a radiant barrier (a tested R-3.8 value (ASHRAE Handbook: 1997 Fundamentals) and a perm. Rating of 22).

rFOIL™ Reflective House Wrap is a single layer of 99.9% pure aluminum foil laminated to a formulated blend of polyethylene and pin perforated. This results in a house wrap that acts not only as a superior air infiltration barrier (effectively sealing up cracks or gaps in the external sheathing) but it also adds a radiant barrier to the exterior of the home, blocking up to 96% of radiant heat. This results in better year round efficiency and comfort levels. Unlike other house wraps or traditional products, Reflective House Wrap is non-toxic and its performance is not affected by extended exposure to the elements.

Applications:

  • Houses
  • Any other framed structures

Benefits:

  • Increases wall insulation efficiency by 20%
  • Blocks 97% of radiant heat transfer
  • Reflects heat out in summer, reducing air conditioning costs
  • Reflects heat back inside in winter, reducing heating costs
  • Increases overall home comfort
