Insulation on AirFRAME® and LEDiffuser™

Insulation on AirFRAME® and LEDiffuser™

All information contained in this Knowledge Base is provided for reference only.  SLD products are engineered to order so the detailed requirements of any particular installation will be coordinated according to the codes, requirements, and specifications of that project.  Project-specific information in all cases supersedes information provided here.
The need to insulate the AirFRAME® or LEDiffuserâ„¢ varies region to region based on climate, location of the AirFRAME within a building, and local regulations. The AirFRAME may be considered ductwork by some inspectors and may therefore need to be insulated in a similar manner to other ductwork.

Since it is significantly easier to apply insulation during the installation of the AirFRAME, this decision should be made early. While SLD Technology does not specifically spec a brand or type of insulation, the most common used is a 1.50-2.00" thick Armaflex® peel-and-stick insulation affixed to the exterior of the AirFRAME. Other similar peel-and-stick insulation may be used.








In areas with tight instersticial spaces, insulate the AirFRAME before raising it into place.
