Dairy / Milking Facilities
Reflectix offers a wide range of applications and products for installation in Agricultural and Livestock Buildings. Depending on the structure of your building and the level of benefit required, there is an energy efficient “easy to install” option to consider.
- Wide range of performance options (R-value depends on application)
- Quicker installation results in lower labor costs
- Product does not contain fibers or dust that require respirators or protective garments
- Lowers stress levels in livestock due to lower internal building temperatures (radiant barrier application blocks 94% + of radiant heat)
- Reduces the impact of the “black-globe effect” on livestock (reduces the absorption of radiant energy by the animal’s body and results in higher weight gain & reproductively and lower mortality rates).
- Non-toxic / non-carcinogenic

- Please Note: The intention of these Installation Instructions and 3-D renderings are for the sole purpose of illustrating the correct location and relative position of the Reflectix® products in specific building assemblies. The correct construction methods and techniques are the responsibility of the installer or contractor. The methods outlined are recommendations on location of the Reflectix® products as a guideline. There are no claims on the part of Reflectix, Inc. that these building assemblies are finite standards or meet building code requirements (as they can vary by region).
