Tiny homes are small and compact. This makes installing an insulation that will give you more R-Value per inch that much more important. Spraying Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Installation is a highly technical install and must be done by professionals. It is also a challenge to find the best place to install SPF insulation in the tiny home (depending on the construction). SPF has been proven to be the best choice to insulate the tiny house ceilings, walls and under the flooring (depending on construction). SPF Insulation has many benefits, including air barrier, vapor retarder and thermal break which makes this perfect for this type of dwelling. SPF insulations ability to seal and stick to most surfaces makes it an even better choice. AS the SPF Insulation can fill a cavity makes it ideal for confined spaces. SPF Insulation can contribute to the reduction of moisture, improve indoor air quality and acoustical isolation (great for tiny homes with smaller wall cavities). In the end, SPF Insulation is the best insulating product. Along with its insulating abilities, tiny home owners get all the other benefits that SPF insulation has to offer.
Shipping containers that are being used as usable space are widely insulated with closed-cell SPF Insulation. This type of insulation is very efficient, it takes less space to get more R-value that any other insulation (R6.8 per inch) and seals up all the gaps in the container (as there are with fiberglass or polystyrene panels). You do not need to frame in the interior. SPF insulation adheres to the sidewalls and ceiling of the storage container. It can be sprayed as thick as necessary to achieve whatever insulating value you require.
WALK IN COOLERS, FREEZERS & WINE CLOSETS
SPF offers the most cost-efficient and effective insulation for Coolers, Freezers, and Wine Closets available. SPF insulation is seamless, self-adhering which maximizes cooling space while minimizing costs. Applied with the proper elastomeric coating, spray foam insulation is food-safe and fully meets USDA and FDA requirements. SPF insulation is the most effective insulation product for food and produce refrigeration, storage and transportation. It creates a seamless air seal that maintains contents at the specific desired temperature. There are no laps, no seams, no leaks. SPF Insulation is also self-adhering. This insulation is used in refrigerated trucks/railcars, steel tank, all types of freezers and large ice chests.
SPF Insulation is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing a stainless steel cooler and can be used on the perimeter walls, ceiling (and underside of roof deck), under the floor and all around the inside of specific rooms or building to completely insulate and seal the desired structure. All that is needed is a refrigeration unit. Temperatures can be maintained at different levels in separated rooms. SPF insulation does not leak or wear out over time, unlike rubber seals and other materials that degrade.
SPF Insulation conforms to the unique shape of any tank and adheres to the surface. This creates a weather-tight insulating layer between the elements and the tank, increase structural integrity, maintain an even temperature (not too cold and not too hot), and reduce energy costs associated with heating or cooling of the storage tanks. SPF insulation has the highest R-value per inch at R6.8. Type of tanks to insulate include: petroleum, fuel, oil-field, water, chemical, fish-holding, effluent septic tanks, digester covers for waste water treatment plants, wine and propane tanks.
