make your Yome warmer in Winter and cooler in Summer. We offer several
options, from complete insulation packages to plans and materials for
Roof Insulation Package
roof insulation package features our exclusive radiant barrier insulation
known as Microfoil. MicroFoil consists of recycled polypropylene
foam sandwiched between two layers of aluminized foil. In the Winter,
the radiant heat from a heat source trying to pass through the insulative
layer is reflected back into the Yome. In a similar manner, solar heat
is reflected back out in the Summer.
Microfoil material is cut into a series of panels designed to
fit below the roof rafters. These panels are covered with fire, water
and mildew resistant Sunforger canvas. The panels are attached
to each other and the wall with continuous Velcro creating an insulative
air space. The panels also conceal the roofs cable hardware system,
resulting in a neat and simple white ceiling.
Side Wall Insulation Package
of the best features of a Yome is the filtered light that passes through
the wall to bathe the interior. Other manufacturers offer reflective foil
insulation for the walls. But to cover the walls with an opaque material
would make the Yome dark, particularly in Winter when light is most welcome.
Instead, we offer panels of a recycled P.E.T. dacron fiberfill insulation
encased in lightweight, fire resistant, acrylic-coated polyester Odyssey
fabric. These translucent triangular panels tuck behind the side wall
poles thus sealing on all sides to stop airflow. Insulating in the same
manner as a sleeping bag, they naturally puff out from the side wall creating
several inches of insulative air space.
insulation package includes special panels that allow access to the windows
and a door. For those triangular panels with a stovepipe vent passing
through them, we offer a panel of insulated aluminum-coated fiberglass
fabric. This will reflect heat from your stove or heater back into the
Yome. The side wall insulation panels when not in use can be stored in
an included pair of zippered storage sacks, which when filled can be used
as a large cushion.
Roof Insulation Kit
the do-it-yourselfer we offer a roof insulation kit at a substantial savings.
Sunforger fire-resistant material is pre-sewn into triangular roof
panels complete with velcro for attaching them to the sidewalls. The difference
is that the customer must simply staple the fabric panels to the roof
support rafters with a staple gun and trim the excess material.
roll of MicroFoil insulation is provided with the half-panel pattern
pre-marked. These panels are easily cut out with a pair of scissors and
attached into fitted pairs. The MicroFoil panels can then be installed
behind the fabric insulation cover after its stapled in.
strips are a great addition to any Yome, with or without other insulation.
Tucked between the roofs velcro flap and the sidewall, they further
seal and insulate this seam. They also discourage insects from entering.
Insulating strips are made of a stiff reflective insulation covered in
Odyssey fire, water and mildew resistant fabric.
