Roof Systems uses NOFP SOLEX Reflective Insulation system. It is engineered to increase energy efficiency, provide a clean finished appearance and is simply installed on all residential, post frame, light-guage steel, and commerical insulation applications.

The core of the product is made of a solid layer of flexible foam designed especially for NOFP (Northwestern Ohio Foam Products Inc.) that provides excellent insulation characteristics in a moisture proof design. The core of SolexLT is a moisture proof design. The core of SolexLT is 1/8″ thick while Solex comes standard at 1/4″ providing additional insulation value and durability. In addition, the multiple facing combinations are thermally bonded in a unique process that provides a long-term quality to every Solex roll.
