thermopan replacement?

I'm finishing my basement and have moved the cold air return. The builder put the return between joists and used a product called Thermopan (like tin-foiled cardboard) to close the space between the joists. I can't find it retail - I'm wondering if there is something household that I could use? (I checked with my Home Depot - they weren't sure...) I only need a few feet to extend the run between the joists - any suggestions?

Hi adilhoxha

If there is a sheetmetal shop in your area you can give them the dimension of the needed material and they can make you a piece. The stuff you are calling thermopan sounds like what we call duct board. Find someone who sells it and see if this is what you are asking for. I personally would use sheet metal, its more of a permanent fixture than duct board.

Good luck
