As insulation contractors, Foam Engineers takes on projects of all sizes and scopes. This summer, we were contracted to insulate a metal building in Steelville, Missouri. Foam Engineers worked with the company to pinpoint their unique requests and needs. We created a custom insulation plan for the company, which manufactures aerospace parts. They plan to use their newly efficient space to house machinery for their operation.
Foam Engineers determined open cell spray foam was the best option for this application. On the roof sheathing 1/2 pound spray foam was applied 6″ thick. The walls and gables were coated with 3.5″ of foam. This gave the newly insulated roof an R-value of 21 and the walls and gables R13.
