• Roll out the product across the top of the trusses, pull tight and staple at approximately 4" intervals.
• Run subsequent courses of the product with the 3/4” staple tabs overlapping at the seams.
• Tape the seams with a Reflectix® Foil Tape (goal is an air-tight, snug seam seal).
• Install purlins over the insulation. Nail or screw to the trusses through the product.
• Install the metal roof to the purlins.
• Per instructions above except install Reflectix® after installing the purlins.
• When installing product, insure that a minimum of a 3/4” drape (middle of cavity) is present.
* Includes thermal resistance of 1.32 UP and 4.55 DOWN for interior air film.
