Re: Possible alternative to Reflectix?
The attic radiant barrier foil is not much less expensive than Reflectix. And there are places on the boat that may not have the available room for the Volara - in these places Reflectix can be used by itself.
I have used Ethafoam which is closed cell and similar to Volara in price.
The air space is needed in conjunction with the foil barrier to create a radiant barrier.
