American Outback Buildings offers Low E insulation manufactured by Environmentally Safe Products, Inc. as an option for all our Steel Buildings. Low-E is produced from non-toxic polyethylene foam heat laminated between two surfaces of 99.4% pure aluminum facings. Low-E insulation resists all three types of heat transfer: convection, conduction, and radiation. This space age product also provides a full vapor barrier with sound deadening properties. Low-E is primarily used in general construction, under roofing , or in walls as part of the buildings insulation system. Large lightweight rolls allow for easy installation.


Reflective Insulations work differently than conventional mass insulations. Depending on the airspace provided they can achieve high r-values but the most important benefit is their ability to stop radiant heat transfer. A pure aluminum surface has a very low e-value, which means it actually re-radiates or reflects heat transfer. Unlike mass insulations which absorb heat Low-E acts as a Thermos® Bottle by keeping heat in your home in the winter and stops heat gain in the summer.

Low-E is manufactured using a 1/4" polyethlyene foam core with scrim reinforced double sided aluminum facings.

Low-E Insulation Data Sheet

For the heaviest R-Values, we recommend combining the ESP foil insulation with reinforced fiberglass insulation in the thickness required to meet your desired R-Value.
