Steel Building Insulation has been a leading provider of insulation for commercial and industrial metal buildings in Hawaii for more than 30 years.

While rainfall amounts and the severity of weather conditions vary by island, properly insulated steel buildings have long been in favor of Hawaii residents, contractors, architects and businesses, as the structures themselves stand tall against high wind velocities and proper insulation provides condensation and moisture control, increases user comfort and improves energy efficiency as energy costs soar statewide.

A high-r value metal building insulation system can help ensure that you see a noticeable decrease in your heating and cooling costs year-round. Our team of insulation specialists can help you design an insulation package to meet your metal building’s specific needs by matching you with the proper building insulation, accessories and related products for your endeavor. From basic single-layer systems to energy saver high R-value systems, thermal blocks to insulation panels. We also offer a full line of metal building insulation accessories, including patch tape, double-sided tape, steel banding, stick pins, arch building pins, insulhold coils and much more.
