Energy Codes Colorado

As a Colorado-based business, Steel Building Insulation understands the concerns and desires of our local consumers. With more than 30 years in the business and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, our consumers turn to us when they need to purchase the very best metal barn insulation, steel building insulation, metal roof insulation, insulation panels, and related insulation accessories.

Our comprehensive insulation materials and accessories product line and knowledgeable, trusted sales staff can help you ensure that you’re securing premium-quality products at reasonable, discounted prices for all of your commercial applications, and through volume per-purchasing and low overhead we are able to offer Colorado consumers’ discounts as high as 50 percent on top-quality, name-brand metal building insulation.

Our insulated metal panels offer high R-values (up to R-48), and can yield as much as a 30 percent reduction in your building’s energy use. Air leakage is one of the primary causes of a building’s heat loss (or gain, depending on the season and climate) and our foam-filled panels are designed through rigorous testing to remain both air and weather-tight throughout the lifetime of your structure. Our fire-rated panels come pre-assembled and are produced with a one-of-a-kind continuous steel wool material.

To help our Colorado consumers find metal building insulation products that best meet their needs, we also carry a full line products for new construction, including insulation facings (ranging from light-duty,low-cost WMP-VR to the extremely heavy-duty, high impact GYMGUARD), tabs, and bandings. We also offer easy-to-install retrofit systems for repairing or enhancing existing metal structures. This system is designed to help you achieve the most insulating value from the available voids created by existing structural components in your building.

Whether you’re looking to insulate a new structure such as a storage facility, gym, greenhouse or wide range of other commercial structures, our well-informed team and online price configuration and ordering system can help ensure that your metal building installation process is quick, easy, productive and affordable. Call today to see how we can maximize savings and lengthen the lifespan of your metal structure.
