Insulation Meets A New Standard With Basement Systems New SilverGlo

Basement Systems, Inc. announces the launch of SilverGlo insulation board, an innovative rigid foam insulation product.

Seymour, CT - September 7, 2011

Basement Systems, Inc., a leader in the basement and crawl space industries with dealers in six countries, has recently developed a new insulation product called SilverGlo foam board insulation.

Rigid foam insulation plays a large role in improving home energy performance, which is why Basement Systems, Inc. has developed its own brand. With SilverGlo insulation board, the company's goal is to deliver better value and performance than other foam boards, setting a new standard in this insulation category.

Of all the different kinds of insulation currently available, rigid foam boards have become very popular for their insulating value and other unique benefits. Unlike fiberglass batt insulation, rigid foam boards never lose insulating value by settling or compressing. Foam boards shed water instead of soaking it up like cellulose insulation. In addition, foam insulation will not support mold or provide a home for mice, insects and other pests. 

When SilverGlo boards are made, they are infused with graphite powder to improve insulating value. Each board also has a reflective coating that acts as an effective radiant barrier. A 2-inch-thick board is rated at R-9 or R-11 if an air space is adjacent to the radiant barrier. Thicker boards are also available for applications where more R-value is required.

This insulation is very versatile, performing equally well when insulating crawl spaces, basements, and attics. Its boards are easy to cut and install, and taping seams between boards creates an effective air barrier. Basement Systems, Inc. distributes and manufactures this product, making SilverGlo pricing all the more a leader choice in its category.
