** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** The primary difference between a radiant heat barrier and a reflective insulation product relates to the way in which it is installed. Reflective insulations are typically installed within cavities that incorporate air spaces between the foil insulation and the cavity materials, as in a wall. Radiant barrier insulation is typically installed with one reflective surface facing a large open air space, which makes it ideal for insulating an attic. Delete article if not required.
