SOLARHIDE-SRW is a durable and energy saving one step radiant barrier roofing underlayment. SOLARHIDE can significantly increase energy savings and overall energy efficiency of a structure. The unique design of SOLARHIDE allows it to reflect up to 97% of the radiant heat it encounters. When installed with the silver surface facing an air space in the roof system, SOLARHIDE acts as an energy efficient radiant barrier that significantly reduces radiant heat transfer. Roof assemblies installed with batten systems are excellent applications for the use of SOLARHIDE-SRW underlayment.
SOLARHIDE has also proven effective at reducing heat transfer under asphalt shingles. (This application would not be classified as a “radiant barrier”.) SOLARHIDE- SRW can be used with most any steep slope roofing assembly including: Metal, Wood, Slate, Clay Tile, Stone, Coated Steel, Concrete Tile, and Asphalt shingles. SOLARHIDE-SRW is a vapor barrier, and should always be installed on roof systems with adequate ventilation.
