INSULATION SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS PAGE 15 CERTIFIED R METAL BUILDING INSULATION FIBERGLASS INSULATION-PRODUCT DATA DESCRIPTION & USES A light-density glass fiber blanket designed for use as part of the insulation system in the roofs and walls of pre-engineered metal buildings. Certified R Metal Building Insulation is designed to be laminated with a variety of appropriate facings for attractiveness, abuse resistance and moisture control. It is available in standard R-values * of 10, 11, 13, 16 and 19. R-25 and R 30 are available as special order items. Standard roll widths are 36", 48", 60" and 72." Selected made-to-order widths are also available. Several methods are used to insulate metal buildings. The usual method is to apply the insulation over the structural members (purlins and girts) and inside the exterior panels. Methods such as the Owens Corning ELAMINATOR insulation system are also available to apply insulation between purlins so as to accommodate greater insulation thicknesses and better thermal performance. Certified Thermal Performance Owens Corning Certified R Metal Building Insulation is regularly tested to ensure compliance to the NAIMA 202-96 (Rev. 2000) Standard. Sampling and testing are performed by the National Association of Home Builders Research Laboratories (NAHBR). The product is labeled on the top surface of each roll with the nominal R-value * and the "NAIMA 202-96 (Rev. 2000)" to indicate compliance. The NAIMA 202-96 (Rev. 2000) standard specifies thermal performance which provides the capability of obtaining nominal thermal resistance (R-values*) after laminating. The actual thermal performance obtained from the laminated product will depend primarily on the recovered thickness. SPECIFICATION COMPLIANCE NAIMA 202-96 (Rev. 2000) Standard for Flexible Fiberglass Insulation Used in Metal Buildings ASTM C991 Type I, Standard Specification for Flexible Fibrous Glass Insulation for Metal Buildings PHYSICAL PROPERTY DATA PROPERTY TEST METHOD RESULT Water Vapor Sorption ASTM C1104 <2% by weight Fungi Resistance ASTM C1338 Provides no sustenance Fire Hazard Classification UL 723 (1) , ASTM E84 (1) and CAN/ULS S102 (1) FHC 25/50 Noncombustibility ASTM E136 Noncombustible 1. The surface burning characteristics of these products have been determined in accordance with UL 723. This standard should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating. * R-values differ. Find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
