• Pre-installation inspection - Check the roof area for clutter, water sprinklers, conduit and lights. Sprinkler systems are especially important. All water pipes must be below the Reflectix® to prevent the possibility of freezing in the winter.
• Install 1”x 2” furring strips on the inside and perpendicular to the Z girts on 22” centers. Utilize 1 1/4” self-taping sheet metal screws to secure the furring strips to the Z girts.
• Butt the furring strips together and tape. Staple tape for reinforcement.
• Staple the edges of the Reflectix® Reflective/Bubble/Bubble/Reflective, Staple Tab product to the furring strips with the 3/4” tabs (so that they will overlap at the seam).
• Tape the seams with a Reflectix® Foil Tape (goal is an air-tight, snug seam seal).
• Staple product at approximately 4” intervals down the middle of the sheet into the furring strip parallel and centered.
* Includes thermal resistance of 1.70 interior air film.
