ELAMINATOR Insulation System, Thermal, Metal Building PROJECT ENGINEER RESPONSIBILITY: This is a general specification guide, intended to be used by experienced construction professionals, in conjunction with good construction practice and professional judgment. This guide is to aid in the creation of a complete building specification that is to be fully reviewed and edited by the engineer. Sections of this guide should be included, edited, or omitted based on the requirements of a specific project. It is the responsibility of both the specifier and the purchaser to determine if a product or system is suitable for its intended use. Neither Owens Corning, nor any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies, assume any responsibility for the content of this specification guide relative to actual projects and specifically disclaim any and all liability for any errors or omissions in design, detail, structural capability, attachment details, shop drawings or other construction related details, whether based upon the information provided by Owens Corning or otherwise. SECTION 07 21 16 PRE-ENGINEERED BUILDING BLANKET INSULATION PART 1 - GENERAL SUMMARY A. Section Includes: Provide thermal insulation applied to pre-engineered steel building roof structural assemblies using Owens Corning's ELAMINATOR Insulation system with either the 100 or 300 Series machines for roof installation: 1. Faced Certified-R Metal Building Insulation with the 100 Series machines or unfaced MBI Plus Insulation with the 300 Series machines is installed parallel with the purlins beneath the roof. 2. MBI Plus Insulation installed as a second layer across the purlin structure, over the first layer of insulation to provide two layers. 3. On buildings with standing seam roofs, FOAMULAR 250 PINK thermal spacer blocks installed over the purlins where faced metal building insulation will be compressed. 4. MBI Plus Insulation installed as one layer perpendicular, or parallel, to the purlins with separate facing parallel to the purlins beneath the roof. 5. ELAMINATOR Insulation System is limited to low slope roofs. 100 Series or 300 Series machines can install the ELAMINATOR Insulation System on slopes 3:12 or lower. 6. ELAMINATOR Insulation System is NOT to be installed in buildings of high moisture, e.g. enclosed swimming pools. B. Roof insulation shall be installed using the Owens Corning ELAMINATOR system with 100 or 300 Series machines in accordance with Owens Corning published installation procedures in one of the following modes, selection of which shall be at the discretion of the contractor: 1. Two-layer installation - the ELAMINATOR system and machines shall be used to apply the first layer of faced Certified-R or unfaced MBI Plus Insulation parallel to and between the purlins. The unfaced second insulation layer shall be installed manually across the purlins, parallel to the roof sheets. If the roof is of standing seam design, thermal spacer blocks shall be installed by the roof sheeting crew on top of the purlins, immediately prior to installation of roof sheets, after both layers of metal building insulation are in place. 2. Single-layer installation - the ELAMINATOR Insulation System machines shall be used to install the vapor retarder facing ahead of and separately from the unfaced MBI Plus Insulation, parallel to the purlins, after which MBI Plus Insulation is installed manually across the purlins. REFERENCES A. Thermal insulation materials shall meet the property requirements of current issues of the following specifications as applicable to the specific product: PRE-ENGINEERED BUILDING BLANKET INSULATION 07 21 16 - 1
