How Strong is this Radiant Barrier Foil?
Even though our product can easily be cut with a knife, once it is in place it will not tear, rip or sag. You can staple one end, pull the foil across a section, staple the other end, and then fill in the install with just a few more staples. This equates to a faster, virtually hassle-free installation. This product will never sag or fall down due to age and/or windy conditions, this product is made to last. This is not kitchen foil; kitchen foil is thin and will tear very easily if applied in an attic, and some kitchen foil is not pure aluminum, WarehouseFoil™ is 99.5% pure aluminum – this is the best radiant barrier you can buy.
