Aluminum Foil Vapor Barrier
Pure aluminum foil, 48" wide roll, tape optional. A vapor barrier is a crucial component for traditional sauna room construction. Foil vapor barrier will protect the building structure by blocking moisture from getting inside walls and is used by most sauna manufacturers. Optional high temperature foil tape is recommended for best results. Staple foil vapor barrier behind tongue & groove sauna wood paneling on walls and ceiling. It also adds 1R insulation efficiency by reflecting radiant heat back into the sauna room. Foil Vapor Barrier is also commonly used in walls near tub/shower for bathroom remodeling.
This is the proper sauna foil vapor barrier made for new construction or remodeled saunas. Foil vapor barrier outlasts plastic vapor barriers which will deteriorate from heat and release gases (and no longer protect walls from moisture). Gain 1R of insulation and the reflective heat efficiency of alum foil radiating behind the paneling. The best heat reflective vapor barrier made for any heated structure.
