Simple Saver System® by Thermal Design Enhances Green Features of Wooster
Jackson Brown King Architects used the Simple Saver System by Thermal Design,
Inc. to assist in attaining Arkansas’ first school with a LEED® for Schools
Silver certification. Over 64,000 square feet of the Simple Saver System was
installed in Wooster Elementary.
The Simple Saver System is a patented insulation liner system used for new and
existing commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. It meets the energy
codes for “in-place” R-values and retains these values beyond installation. The
installed Simple Saver’s insulation fills the purlin space with uncompressed
insulation, attaining the specified R-values and increasing the thermal
efficiency of metal buildings.
“We use the Simple Saver System anytime we have an exposed pre-engineered metal
building” said Randy Palculict, AIA LEED AP of Jackson Brown King Architects.
“The bright white fabric of the Simple Saver System increases the reflectivity
enhancing daylighting features and this reflectivity helps in Green design. The
system looks clean and tight along with a high R-value.”
Another bonus noted Palculict, “The Simple Saver Systems reduces the Noise
Reduction Coefficient (NRC). With hard concrete floors you need more sound
absorption quality and the Simple Saver System provides more than a typical lay
in ceiling tile”. The system also provides an “instant” finish, so it minimizes
the amount of materials such as drywall, painting, etc. The reduction in
manufacturing, shipping, and waste removal of products helps attaining LEED
During construction, Simple Saver provides extra safety with its fall protection
rating. “It makes you feel good using a system that provides extra protection
for those working on the building”, noted Palculict.
The benefits of using the Simple Saver Simple by Thermal Design are many.
“Besides from the superior thermal performance, safety features, light
reflectivity and acoustical value the system provides; architects, designers and
owners are extremely pleased with the clean, bright, grid ceiling appearance.
When properly installed, the Simple Saver System provides an instant finish for
a variety of roof and wall types and is extremely durable in a variety of
building use conditions”, described Brad Rowe, National Marketing Manager of
Thermal Design, Inc.
