The Simple Saver System has been manufactured and marketed through Thermal Design over the past 30 years and has become the #1 specified high R-value insulation system for metal buildings. In addition to superior insulation performance compared to “traditional” methods, the Simple Saver System is a patented liner system that provides through fall protection anywhere on the roof that it is properly installed, according to Thermal Design's Instructions. This fall protection is not limited to the leading edge during the installation and roofing process. We invite you to learn more about the concept of the Simple Saver System and why it may be the perfect fit for your next building.
Installation: Simple as 1, 2, 3
Simple Saver Roofs
Simple Saver System will yield designed insulation values without excessive compression and voids, which are common with other methods of installation. The Simple Saver fabric liner system uses a strong, low permeance vapor retarder to create the required space for designed insulation thickness between the structural members while isolating conductive secondary framing members from the inside conditioned air. It is crucial to compare the structural differences between the Simple Saver System and traditional methods of insulating before you begin your next project.
Simple Saver System is custom made for each order and our durable Syseal® fabric spans the entire bay's width and length in one piece. The Syseal fabric is supported by a grid pattern of color matched tensioned steel straps which are installed below the purlins/joists. This creates the space for uncompressed, unfaced insulation. In multi-layer scenarios the upper layer of unfaced insulation may be installed over the structural members with minimal compression when the roof is attached. Once our patented liner system is installed, it provides installers and roofers with OSHA compliant means of through fall protection anywhere on the roof.
Simple Saver Walls
The Simple Saver wall insulation system is installed completely from the inside, out of the wind and weather. Unfaced insulation is simply cut to fit the girt spacings and then impaled onto Fast-R™ rigid insulation hangers which prevents the insulation from sagging. Similar to the roof, every piece of Syseal fabric is custom made for each order and spans the bay's width and height from column to column. The fabric liner/vapor retarder is installed on the inside plane of the wall to isolate the insulation and conductive girts from the inside conditioned air.
Single layer Simple Saver wall systems help speed the wall sheeting process and a thick single layer of unfaced insulation and our Quik-Stop™ thermal break tape is preferred versus two layers of compressed laminated insulation. The Simple Saver single layer wall system prevents bulging and dimpling of the metal wall panels which is common with laminated insulation compressed between the panels and through-fastened to the sub-structure. Filling the full girt depth with insulation is highly recommended.
