In recent years, spray foam insulation has gained increasing acceptance as the most ideal type of insulation on a wide variety of commercial, industrial, metal building, and mechanical insulation projects. Since spray foam is applied as a liquid that quickly expands to a thicker foam, it is often the best solution when you’re insulating cracks, seams, joints, gaps, crevices, wall cavities, and other hard-to-reach areas.
Many types of spray foam insulation offer high R-Values, making them effective at regulating the amount of heat that enters or leaves your building. Poor exterior wall insulation is often one of the leading causes of heat transfer, excessive moisture, and air loss in commercial structures. Spray foam insulation can be applied to nearly any type of architectural build out and when it’s installed correctly, it dramatically improves indoor air quality, moisture and pest control, soundproofing, and the overall energy efficiency of your building.
Applying Spray Foam Insulation Safely and Effectively
Since spray foam insulation is created on-site through a chemical reaction, it’s important to work with an insulation company whose staff has been thoroughly trained on how to apply these chemicals both safely and effectively.
The safety plan for your building must include the application procedures recommended by the product manufacturer, a review of any potential safety hazards on the jobsite, proper set up of all equipment including ladders and scaffolding, start-up and shut-down processes for SPF process equipment and building equipment like HVAC systems, an overspray mitigation plan, and communication procedures.
Applying spray foam insulation is an art unto itself. To get the best results, it’s necessary to review ambient and substrate conditions prior to installation. You must also closely follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the thickness of individual passes and the cooling time between those passes. To maximize thermal performance, it’s critical to adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations and code requirements for total thickness, to monitor the overall thickness of the spray foam to maintain quality throughout the installation process.
