Reflectix began as an energy-management company in the early 1980s and became a reflective insulation and radiant barriers leader. Reflectix is dedicated to researching, developing and manufacturing technically advanced energy barriers designed to reduce consumption and be non-detrimental to the environment. The developed products are safe, easy to use, and provide significant economy for the user wherever there is a desire to control heating and cooling. Reflectix has achieved the ISO certification to ensure its customers’ highest and consistent product quality.

rFOIL insulation is a single or double layer of polyethylene bubbles bonded to and sandwiched between a highly reflective surface and a white polyethylene sheet. rFOIL is recognized for its thermal performance, easy installations, versatility, and environmental friendliness and offers a number of advantages over traditional insulations. Its unique construction is specially designed to reduce radiant heat gain or loss in residential, commercial, post-frame, metal frame and HVAC applications.
