POLE BARNS & METAL BUILDINGS
The proper insulation can be determined once the use of the building has been established. The amount and kind of insulation depends on the needs for the buildings use. Our SPF Advisor can help you to find the appropriate kind and amount insulation.
Sprayed polyurethane foam is widely used in pole barns and metal building construction and maintenance for temperature control, moisture control and pest control, along with asset protection.
- Temperature Control: Open-cell spray foam forms an airtight barrier that keeps the climate of your dairy barn, hog pen, poultry house or other livestock areas constant. This includes humidity levels as well as air temperature.
- Moisture Control Closed-cell spray foam is a more dense insulation that is completely impervious to water. This watertight seal keeps your grains dry, eliminating expensive mold and rot damage.
- Pest Control: Spray polyurethane foam barn insulation seals cracks, crevices and other openings that rodents and insects have been using to invade your barn. SPF is not a food source for rodents either! SPF insulation can also be disinfected in cases of biosecurity.
- Asset Protection: Spray polyurethane foam prevents the metal from forming condensation which, if allowed to form, will over time rust and degrades the metal siding. Not to mention, cause damage to stored payload. The SPF insulation will also increase the buildings racking strength from storms and high winds.
