Reflective Modular/Mobile Home Radiant Barrier
MicroSkirt is modular/mobile home skirting insulation. MicroSkirt uses the properties of MicroFoil to keep heat from building up in the modular/mobile home during the summer by using reflectivity. This same reflectivity acts as insulation during winter months.
A pair of scissors or utility knife is the only tool necessary for installation.
MicroSkirt Reflective insulation is designed specifically for use behind mobile home skirting. When installed correctly, MicroSkirt provides an excellent thermal and vapor barrier, greatly reducing condensation buildup. MicroSkirt effectively reflects a heat source as opposed to absorbing and dissipating it as fiber glass insulations must do. This reflectivity works both ways: radiating summer heat outward and retaining winter heat inside. With our patented self-taping foil flange running along one edge, installation is fast and easy.
Simply remove the release paper to expose the adhesive and press the foil flange directly to the base of the mobile home. The lower edge of the insulation should be tucked into the lower skirting channel. Install the skirting in front of the insulation and you are done. MicroSkirt requires only a pair of scissors or a utility knife for easy installation. Masks and long clothing are not required as MicroSkirt does not contain hazardous chemicals or harmful materials that cause itching or respiratory problems. MicroSkirt Insulation is safe and easy to use.
Radiant Barriers do not have an R value since the R-value for reflectivity cannot be measured. However, radiant barriers can be tested as part of an assembly where the R-value can be observed and measured. In this case, the R-value can be achieved when the radiant insulation is installed as tested. R-values cannot be estimated based upon different installation methods.
Read This Before You Buy: The chart shows the R-value of this insulation. R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend on climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size.
