Spray foam insulation seals and insulates commercial buildings, helping reduce energy costs while reinforcing unique building structures which might otherwise be difficult to insulate with traditional materials.
Foam insulation helps to prevent heat transfer between rooms by slowing convective and radiative heat exchange and stopping air leakage, as well as providing soundproofing qualities in commercial properties, with spray foam systems being the most effective type of insulation for this purpose.
Spray foam insulation not only prevents energy waste but also works to keep indoor temperatures stable – helping HVAC systems work less hard to regulate them and consequently saving on costs. This also means reduced costs as HVAC systems don’t have to work as hard in controlling them.
Spray foam insulation works to seal air leaks and gaps where energy often escapes, helping reduce heat transfer by blocking convective and conductive heat flow. Graco sprayers are a popular choice for applying spray foam insulation, as they are easy to use and provide precise control.
Spray foam insulation can be applied to various surfaces, including metals, concrete, wood and fiberglass. It can also be injected into small cracks and crevices to block pests like termites and carpenter ants from entering buildings.
Polyurethane foam insulation expands and fills all gaps when applied as a liquid spray, completely sealing around through penetrations such as electrical outlets and plumbing devices for maximum R-Value insulation performance.
Spray foam insulation is an extremely dense material that effectively prevents air from escaping or entering commercial properties, thus allowing heating and cooling systems to work less and save you money all year.
Closed-cell spray foam insulation can also be adapted to accommodate structures of all shapes and sizes that don’t accommodate traditional insulation materials. Closed-cell spray foam in particular is great at fitting into tight corners like metal buildings to fill cracks and crevices and ensure watertight seals are maintained.
Closed-cell spray foam is water resistant and can help prevent the development of mold, safeguarding employees and customers against harmful bacteria or mildew that might otherwise flourish in your building. Furthermore, this reduces moisture entering through gaps in walls to your building, decreasing structural damage risks as well as potential health concerns.
Spray foam insulation is a dense, pollution-free insulator that creates an airtight seal against moisture intrusion – protecting interior structures while keeping energy bills down.
Spray insulation is mold, pest and pollutant resistant as well as more cost-effective than rigid board insulation. Sprayed on site it conforms easily to irregular surfaces like corners and junctions of walls, roofs and attics for quick installation and seamless coverage.
Rigid board insulation requires fasteners and frequent cutting to adapt to curved walls and corners. In comparison, spray foam insulation can simply be sprayed onto any surface without the need for fasteners; furthermore it optimizes energy efficiency by fully restricting airflow while simultaneously minimizing air leakage; this increases your R-Value providing increased thermal insulation protection.
Commercial spray foam insulation is an effective way of deterring unwanted pests from entering a structure. While removing and replacing fiberglass or cellulose insulation will help, spray foam insulation acts even more effectively against mice, rats, squirrels, roaches and other rodents by acting as an air barrier, not trapping food particles or scents that attract them like it does in cellulose insulation.
Pests tend to find closed-cell foam more difficult than wooden structures for chewing through, and it does not absorb moisture or pest droppings like cellulose does.
PMPs must adjust to a changing building environment by updating inspection techniques and treatment methods using spray foam – otherwise companies could find themselves unable to honor their termite warranties.
Spray foam insulation has an extended lifespan when properly maintained, potentially up to 30 years or longer. This long lifespan helps lower energy usage, benefitting the environment while potentially earning commercial buildings green certification credits.
Closed-cell spray foam offers an R-Value per inch that makes it an excellent way to insulate unique building structures or fill larger gaps. Plus, its rigid texture and easy installation makes this material perfect for use around electrical or plumbing fixtures.
To avoid harmful vapors, it is vitally important to cordon off and ventilate the area while spraying foam, as well as to use indoor heating to help ensure a warm and consistent spray area and ensure it cures properly. This will ensure a proper foam cure.
