Thermal Design is increasing the energy efficiency, aesthetic qualities, life span and overall value of these buildings while improving the quality of insulating methods in pre-engineered metal buildings. The Simple Saver System, surpassing 200 million square feet installed, is the nation's leading high R-value insulation system.

The Simple Saver System may be installed in following types of new or existing buildings: pre-engineered metal frame, bar joist, masonry, wood truss and concrete. The Simple Saver System is appropriate for any application, and we'd like to prove it to you. Call today for a free energy analysis (800-255-0776) and learn more about how you can save money with the Simple Saver System.

Thermal Design has conducted tests on typical, over-the-purlin insulation methods to determine their actual installed R-values as opposed to the labeled R-values. Hot box testing by Oak Ridge National Laboratory was conducted to demonstrate the thermal performance of metal building roof assemblies according to ASTM C 1363, "Standard Test Method for the Thermal Performance of Building Assemblies by Means of a Hot Box Apparatus." Tests were also conducted at the University of Illinois to "determine the realistic and achievable thickness of fiberglass insulation when installed with conventional over-the-purlin techniques."
