Using Infinite-R™ during the installation of a new metal roof, or roof replacement with metal roof provides a unique opportunity to store significant amounts of energy, and protect the comfort and environmental impact of the home for decades.

Since metal roofs have such high conductivity for heat, this detail shows Infinite-R™ being installed at the underside of the metal roof to help transition the phase change material in the winter months.

This particular detail may be focused primarily at the southern/solar exposed roof areas (where transitioning will take place from the sun).

With a higher PCM design temperature of say 84F, the PCM will transition in winter time under the higher solar temperatures, and will serve to cool the roof and attic beneath in the summertime due to the storage barrier created against higher temperatures.
