Why Enerflex Radiant Barrier? Enerflex is worlds apart from other radiant barrier products.
Made from two layers of tear-resistant metalized film, it is laminated and reinforced with a poly scrim
for tear and puncture resistance. When installed to the underside of a roof and the inside of the gable
ends and other vertical surfaces in an attic, it is the most effective at reducing energy consumption
and making your home more comfortable, year-round.
An easy, do-it-yourself project. Enerflex products are available in two styles: panels and rolls.
Both are double-sided for efficiency and ease of installation. There is no "up" or "down" side. Panels
are used to retrofit an existing home and, using a unique tension-fit design, simply “flex" into place
between the roof’s rafters or trusses. No tools needed! Rolls are ideal for new construction and
for covering the vertical surfaces in an existing home, such as gable ends and knee walls. A staple gun
is the only tool required for rolls.

Reduces energy use up to 20%. Save energy and money with Enerflex Radiant Barrier.
The increased performance of your insulation and duct work, and the decreased workload on your air
conditioner and other appliances, means Enerflex will pay for itself in utility bill savings over time.
The payback period and exact amount of savings per month will vary based on individual circumstances,
including home location, weather conditions, local utility costs, roof type and home size.
Class A/1 fire rated. With its class A/1 rating for fire and smoke, Enerflex also meets the new
mounting requirements for ASTM – E84 under E2599. ASTM E2599 is the new industry standard that will
be reflected in the 2012 building codes. ASTM standards are adopted by organizations such as IECC, IBC,
IRC, and ICC.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does radiant barrier work? On a
The increased
performance of
your insulation
and duct work,
and the decreased
workload on your
heating and cooling system means
Enerflex will pay
for itself in utility
savings.
My home is insulated. Do I also need a
radiant barrier? Yes. Conventional insulation
and Enerflex work together by reducing different forms of heat flow. Insulation slows the
movement of heat by conduction. Enerflex
reduces the movement of heat by radiation.
Enerflex improves the performance of your
existing insulation by limiting the flow of radiant heat from the roof to the attic floor, making the top surface of the insulation cooler.
How how much Enerflex do I need?
Enerflex comes in flat panels and in rolls,
to meet your specific needs. Visit EnerflexFoil.com and click on the materials
calculator to quickly estimate the
number of panels you will need.
Do I need special tools to install
Enerflex? No. Enerflex panels simply "flex"
into place. Enerflex rolls are simply stapled.
Recommended tools and safety equipment
are listed in the installation instructions, to
make your installation go smoothly.
Does Enerflex need to be taped?
We recommend overlapping the radiant barrier edges by 1" to 2", which does not require
taping. While not required for cut edges or
seams that butt together, the best results will
be achieved by taping with reflective tape.
How much space is required for proper
ventilation? Check with your local build
code official for ventilation requirements in
your area. The unique design of Enerflex will
allow an unobstructed space for airflow from
the soffit vents to the wind ventilators or
ridge vent. A minimum gap of 3.5" is required
between the top of the roof decking and
Enerflex. Leave a minimum of 6" from the
peak of the roof, or 6" in all directions from
any turbine, turtle back, gable or mushroom
vent. Never cover any vents with Enerflex,
regardless of where they are located.
Is there a warranty? Yes. Enerflex Radiant
Barrier is covered under a 15-Year Limited
Warranty.
Will a radiant barrier harm my
shingles? No. Typically, a radiant barrier
will increase the temperature of your shingles
2 to 5 degrees. This minor elevation in temperature will not affect the life of your shingles.

hot day, your roof shingles absorb solar heat
and warm up the sheathing below, which
radiates heat towards the attic floor where
conventional insulation is typically installed.
A radiant barrier blocks up to 96% of this
radiant energy. It reduces heat transfer
by thermal radiation across the air space
between your roof and the attic floor,
keeping your attic cooler. In cool weather,
it helps keep radiant energy from leaving
the home, reducing heat loss.
