Summary

The elements of the suspended construction along with pertinent questions were investigated. An evaluation was made of mean temperatures which result from adding different amounts of insulation and how that affected the choice of materials in the walls. The types of material used for parts of the insulation package: the tie-back and support castings, the insulation, and the retaining clips were studied. Calculations were made to show the savings available through use of the insulation package and its payback period.
