Covering exposed fiberglass in Basement

Hello -

I have encapsulated fiberglass insulation in the ceiling of my basement and since I have exercise equipement down there I wanted to install a covering that would be inexpensive.

I plan on finishing the basement off in 5 years so I do not want to install drop ceiling or sheetrock.

I was thinking of a radiant barrier due to cost and ease of insulation but I was concerned about it acting as a vapor barrier. I am concerned about the perforared radiant barrier allowing the release of airborn fiberglass.

Thanks
