ThermaLift™ provides a competitive alternative to meet the most demanding energy codes, including IECC-2015 and Canada’s NECB-2011. Designed for use with VP’s SSR standing seam roof, when installed with our new 1” thermal block and R-19 plus R-30 insulation, the system delivers a tested U-factor performance as low as 0.029 or an effective R value of 34.5. ThermaLift is sold as a complete system which includes SSR panels, clips and fasteners, along with the insulation bridge and insulation materials.

Other Insulation Systems

Thermal Block: Minimizing heat escape where insulation is compressed over purlins of joists is one of the best ways to improve the thermal efficiency of a building. Better thermal efficiency means lower energy costs and lower life-cycle costs. VP's Thermal Block provides an economical way to improve the thermal performance by reducing heat escape at the contact areas over roof secondary. When thermal blocks are used along with 6" blanket fiberglass insulation, there is an improvement of 25% compared to systems where thermal blocks are not used.

VP's SuperBlock System for the SSR™ standing seam roof system is capable of delivering an ASTM C 1363 Hot Box tested, 0.047 U-Factor, using R13 faced fiberglass as the bottom layer and R19 unfaced as the top layer.
