Our ceiling and wall upgrade in the service area has been completed and we could not be happier with the results. The insulation panels not only help control our energy cost, but brighten the shop area considerably.

Double insulating the AGCO Automotive repair shop area saves energy and improved lighting

Please note, in the above photograph, the overhead lighting is turned off
All lighting in the photograph is from overhead skylights and is typical for daylight operation. Prior to the installation, lighting was 40 candle power in the shop. After the installation, lighting is now consistently over 60 candle power. Natural lighting makes it much easier for our technicians to work and increases their ability to spot problems. Natural lighting can also be supplemented by the three rows of high-output fluorescent fixtures as needed.


These six-foot wide panels are constructed of aluminum, bonded to a sealed bubble wrap material and covered with vinyl. They cover the ceiling and walls and are further supported by anodized aluminum bands and attached with stainless steel staples.

The panels add an additional R11 insulation value to the current insulation. This brings our total insulation value to over R-22. The entire project took one week to complete.
