Our Premium range, suitable for large scale building operations. RadiantShield Premium comprises a 4mm XPE foam core. Although XPE and EPE may look similar, there are significant differences in their construction. Notably, with this product, we've been able to achieve compliance with the flammability requirements for building materials as stipulated under the BCA.
The outside surface is made of Polished aluminium as normal, but it's also reinforced with a woven mesh for serious strength and coated with a gold anti-glare finish to make it easier for the tradies on-site during installation.
To top it off, we give you a 150mm overlap on this layer, so that you're not wasting money by overlapping the full material thickness unnecessarily.
- 1.35m width (PLUS an additional 150mm overlap of the woven gold face foil)
- Gold Ant-Glare Coating on one side
- Woven Reinforced on Anti-Glare side
- 4mm XPE Foam
- Flammability Index 1
- Reflectivity 95-97%
Solavis RadiantShield Insulation has been developed as both a vapour barrier and high-performance insulation. RadiantShield 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 is suitable for use in Residential ceiling, roof, wall and underfloor applications. Solavis RadiantShield insulation is made up of a layer of fire-retardant XPE Foam 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).
