RadiantShield Plus is nearly identical to Radiantshield except that it's comprised of an EPE foam core, as opposed to a PE bubble core. The foam core offers slightly Improved thermal conductivity (due to a larger number of smaller air pockets, compared to larger air bubbles) but its major benefit is in a significantly improved thickness consistency; ensuring more consistent performance across all surfaces.
Otherwise, both products share the same high-purity polished Aluminium reflective surfaces.
Solavis RadiantShield Plus Insulation has been developed as both a vapour barrier and high-performance insulation. RadiantShield Plus is designed to combat heat gain and heat loss in all three forms (radiation, convection, and conduction), resulting in thermal performance superior to many conventional insulations.
RadiantShield Plus is suitable for use in Residential ceiling, roof, wall and underfloor applications. Solavis RadiantShield Plus insulation is made up of a layer of fire-retardant polyethene air bubbles sandwiched between two 99+% pure aluminium foil. It reflects back up to 96% of the radiant heat to achieve thermal comfort inside the home all year round.
Solavis RadiantShield is a clean, safe and fibre-free insulation designed to replace conventional bulk insulations. It is in full compliance with ASNZS 4859.1 and achieves over R3.0 for summer in residential ceiling applications.
Because our reflective insulation is foil facing on both sides, it will provide benefit by reflecting heat for both summer and winter conditions (compared to single-sided foils which only reflect heat in one direction).
