There are a variety of methods used to insulate a Mahaffey fabric structure. For most applications, including temporary warehouses and environmental enclosures, Guardian Steel Walls™ are the optimal solution.
This proprietary system has 1-3/8” insulation to keep structures warm in the winter and cool in the summer. With an R-value of 13.45, these walls give outstanding energy performance.
Interior and exterior surfaces are painted steel that enclose CFC-free (environmentally friendly) polystyrene insulation. An additional benefit is that the solid barrier of steel provides security 24/7.
Semi-permanent installations in extreme environments benefit from Mahaffey's AIR™ (Air-Insulated Roof) System option.
The AIR™ System is composed of two fabric layers that are sealed and filled with low pressure air. The trapped air provides a layer of insulation from temperature fluctuations.
The AIR™ System also prevents condensation from forming, as it does in some environments.
