The U-value is the rate of heat transfer through a building material and is given in units of W/m².K. The lower the U-Value, the greater a product’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating qualities.
The number of foil layers employed within a panel and the application of coatings or treatments to those foils determine the U-value of that system.
It is generally the case that increasing the number of layers and therefore the number of separate air chambers within a panel will improve is thermal performance.
Texlon® cladding panels are restrained at their perimeters by one of a large range of extrusions. If required thermal performance can be further improved by the use of a capping system that incorporates a layer of polyamide insulating foam.
Texlon® inflated cladding panels have outstanding insulation properties.
