Thermal Control Membrane   

TCM is a multi-layered radiant barrier building insulation. When installed properly, TCM rejects 98% of the Infrared Radiation (Heat) coming in contact with the film. Applications include residential, commercial or any building requiring less heat gain. In air conditioned buildings savings will pay for the cost of installing TCM. Non air conditioned buildings may not need air conditioning as a result of the heat rejection but may need ventilation solutions.

Why not use regular insulation?


This is a video clip from a presentation offered by the Virgin Islands Energy Office. The workshop was designed to introduce the most current building/energy codes. The workshop outlined the current IECC 2009 energy codes and how they apply in Zone 1 (The Virgin Islands). The topic shown is Mr. Wiig addressing the failure of traditional fiberglass insulation in tropical environments. Leading to discussions of other building materials, specifically relfective technologies with Higher SRI (Solar Reflective Index) roof coatings and radiant barrier technology installed in roof systems.
