Facts #28: Facts About Lamination Process Control and Thickness Recovery After Lamination (MB308)–+
Provides recommendations for laminators to help metal building insulation meet the stated R-value after lamination.
Facts #31: Facts About Certified NAIMA 202-96® Insulation (MB305)–+
In a Question and Answer format, discusses the performance benefits of NAIMA 202-96 certified insulation.
NAIMA metal Insulations are independently tested and certified to meet the rigid performance requirements needed for today’s energy efficient metal buildings.
Facts #54: Fire and Thermal Performance of Reflective Insulations in Metal Building Applications (MB313)–+
Analyzes and discusses the fire and thermal performance claims of reflective insulations used in metal building systems.
Facts #58: The Facts About the Acoustical Performance of Metal Building Insulation (MB315)–+
Metal Building insulation greatly reduces the level of both exterior and interior noise by preventing transmission of exterior sounds to the interior of the building absorbing reverberating sounds within the building.
This Fact Sheet discusses the fundamentals of acoustical performance and shows how to improve sound control in typical wall and roof assemblies through the use of fiberglass insulation.
NAIMA 202 Standard® For Flexible Fiberglass Insulation to be Laminated for Use in Metal Buildings (MB311)–+
NAIMA metal building insulation manufacturers subscribe to this voluntary standard for flexible fiberglass insulations to assure the R-value is maintained after lamination.
The voluntary standard is a valuable product specification tool for manufacturers, designers and users of metal building insulation systems.
