Best Insulation Solutions for Commercial Buildings
As an architect or builder, you want to be able to be creative and, at the same time, achieve the highest standards of insulation. That’s why spray foam is the premier choice for both traditional and non-traditional buildings.
Using state-of-the-art application tools, we at Superior Insulation Company can install spray foam easily in attics, cathedral ceilings and angles that may be challenging for traditional insulation materials. In addition, spray foam won’t allow shrinking or sagging, which can cause a building to lose its energy efficiency. In fact, spray foam is able to expand with the natural contractions of the building in changing temperatures. So you’re always energy efficient!
At your company building, you certainly don’t want co-workers to be distracted, hearing each other through the walls while they’re trying to work. The good news is that spray foam can give you an 80% reduction in noise, which in turn, creates greater productivity.
A Greener Choice
The trend is toward more sustainable alternatives in insulation methods and materials. So it is nice to be able to promote the fact that you’re doing your part to help the environment. From another perspective, when you’re trying to run a company, it doesn’t help to have employees out sick due to severe allergies and asthma. These are more reasons to choose spray foam, because it provides a barrier to pollutants, including dust and pollen, which keeps your indoor air quality clean AND is environmentally safe. Icynene® Spray Foam is now more preferred because it has fewer VOCs, (Volatile Organic Compounds), toxins that can be released into the air.
In keeping with good air quality, mold has been known to cause a wide variety of illnesses. Spray foam is moisture resistant, which means it not only repels water, but as a result, eliminates mold growth in places where it can cause health problems.
Getting It Up To Code
Because of the frequency of natural disasters, the International Energy Conservation Code is calling for specific insulation requirements for each climate zone. You need to work with professionals who know the codes for your region of the country. Updated codes are also calling for more insulation, a rise in 6.6 percent a year. That’s why it’s important to work with contractors, like the ones at Superior, who know the codes.
Which Type of Spray Foam is Right for You?
There are two basic kinds of polyurethane spray foam: open-cell and closed-cell. Open-cell can be applied in metal buildings, duct work, walls, floors, ceilings and roof lines. Closed-cell foam can be applied to all of these areas too, along with additional places like swimming pools, exterior storage tanks, and water lines.
At Superior Insulation Company, we are experienced working with commercial buildings like schools, healthcare facilities, retail businesses, churches, manufacturing plants, office buildings, military bases, multi-family houses and more.
