Metal buildings are great for many application from businesses to hobbies. For example, backyard sheds, garages, mini storage units, airplane hangars, and giant poultry barns are all are employed in diverse uses across a wide range of prices. However, most buildings share the same complaints: they’re uncomfortable because they get too hot (or rippin cold) and they “sweat” (condensation problems) regularly.

As an industry expert, I consistently ran into the problem of not being able to recommend a single product to solve these common issues. So, I set out to come up with a high-quality solution to this age-old problem, and after lots of research and design, I’m proud to introduce you to a new line of foil/foam products called BlueTex™ Insulation.

Designing the Perfect Metal Building Insulation

I started AtticFoil.com in 2006 for residential attics and decided to make superior radiant barrier products. Even though I designed it with residential use, there was no reason it couldn’t be used in commercial applications. I started to hear back from customers saying they were able to keep their metal buildings cooler with great results. However, my cold-climate customers had additional challenges of controlling moisture problems in the winter.

The key to controlling moisture is to keep the interior surface temperature above the dew point. This is most often done with a little bit of insulation and while there are some other products out there, I just never felt comfortable putting my approval on them because I consistently found that most of them were cheap junk that fell apart in a few years time. So I set out to make my own.

BlueTex™ is the best of two worlds, combining premium aluminum foil with high-quality EPE & XPE foam cores to work as a durable, all-in-one insulation for any metal building, new or existing. After talking to numerous dealers about installation preferences, I also designed it with a tape tabbed edge so it’s easy to install, and made it washable, so you can clean it up if you’re using it in a professional setting. BlueTex™ comes in two grades: Pro and Supreme.

BlueTex™ Pro

BlueTex™ Pro is a good choice for heat rejection and some minor moisture control. The product is a 3mm EPE foam with a diamond aluminum foil on one side, and a white tearproof PE woven fabric on the other side. The roll is finished with a 1.5″ tab with a 1″ wide peel-and-stick tape edge to make installation simple and easy.
