While a typical 3.5-inch (89mm) of insulation in a stud wall has an R-value of 13, using 3½- inches of Thermablok® could produce an amazing R-value of 105 in the same space.
The majority of thermal transmission in a standard insulated stud wall travels through the mechanical link, usually the studs. Thermablok, which is 99.8% air, interrupts this thermal path quickly and economically. Installation of the product is accomplished by attaching Thermablok to the stud edge before drywall or sheeting is put up. Thermablok comes with a simple pull and stick adhesive back for easy, clean installation. No messy adhesives required.
Thermablok technology couldn't have been made available to the public at a better time. Conservation is of course faster, and much less expensive than producing more energy.
Other benefits include:
- Significant saving in energy costs
- Unaffected by moisture, mold or water
- Easily applied via stick-on back.
- "Class A" fire rated
- Adds acoustical isolation
- Made in USA
- Virtually no weight means low cost shipping
