All You Need to Know about R-Value in 5 mins
R-Value is a measurement of resistance to heat flow throughout a given thickness of material; the higher the R-Value, the greater the resistance.
It is the overall of an insulation material to resist (retard) heat flow, taking into account both the thermal conductivity (K value) and the thickness of an insulation material. It is used to calculate overall heat transmission coefficients and is expressed as m² ºK/W.
What does R-Value mean to your farm business?
Livestock need an optimal living environment to grow. Structure with Higher R-Value insulation will maintain farm house temperature at a comfortable zoon much better, and maximize energy savings, which brings a better productivity. That’s why GSI building crafted its structure with top heat resistance profile, for example the ceiling and sidewalls with a standard R-Value as high as 12 (higher R value is optional upon customer request).
Thanks to GSI’s superb heat resistance performance, livestock procure optimal living conditions, water and electricity cost will be minimized, and farm owner will enjoy a higher ROI in the long run. Investing in GSI structure is a wise choice.
