According to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an R value is 1 square foot hour degree Fahrenheit per Btu (ft[sup]2[/sup]hrF/Btu)

In SI terms that equals 0.17611 square meter kelvins per watt (m[sup]2[/sup]K/W)

You would just multiply R value by 0.17611 to convert to m[sup]2[/sup]K/W
