Bay Insulation's faced MBI fiberglass is a resilient, flexible fiberglass blanket laminated to a high quality vapor retarder facing. It is the most common and cost effective solution used for insulating pre-engineered metal buildings.
Faced fiberglass can be installed as a single layer, or combined with unfaced MBI fiberglass and various support hardware to create a "High R-Value System".
All Bay Insulation metal building laminating plants produce faced product that is listed to applicable UL standards and requirements by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.
