When the sun shines on a roof with standard sheathing, radiant heat penetrates through the sheathing, heating up the air in the attic space. Without a solid barrier to contain the hot air, heat penetrates through the insulation into living spaces causing room temperatures to rise. More energy is needed to cool the house causing higher energy costs to homeowners. Weyerhaeuser’s Structurwood® RBS (Radiant Barrier Sheathing) foil-laminated panels are specifically designed to limit the sun’s radiant heat by reflecting the heat back outside.
Weyerhaeuser Structurwood® RBS panels represent Weyerhaeuser’s commitment to quality and service coupled with the latest advances in heat reflection technology. Engineered with the same level of quality assurance and design specifications as our traditional Structurwood® Roof Sheathing, RBS panels include a layer of perforated foil to provide a radiant barrier that reflects the sun’s heat and radiant energy reducing attic temperatures and reducing the amount of energy needed to cool the home. This translates not only into ease of installation and high quality product performance, but also energy savings.
The Structurwood® RBS Advantage:
• Improved perforations in the foil – enhances the drainage and venting process
• Specially designed adhesives – provide secure foil attachment
• Foil barrier – can provide energy savings by helping to block the sun’s heat
When Structurwood® quality is combined with radiant barrier energy technology, everyone wins!
Structurwood® RBS Sheathing is available through iLevel ™ in limited areas. Minimum quantities may be required for some orders.
