Spray foam in commercial metal buildings serves more than one purpose. Most importantly, keeping your building well-insulated saves on heating and cooling costs, thus lowering your utility bills. Since heat conduction through the panels and beams in these structures isn’t unusual, spray foam insulation is your best bet if you’re looking for an efficient insulator.
Due to angular corners and irregular surfaces, water leaks are also common in metal buildings. Such leaks can be challenging and costly to identify. Closed cell spray foam eliminates leaks since it conforms to corners, junctions, and other irregular surfaces, forming a seamless waterproofing shield that eliminates leaks.
A less-known application of spray foam insulation is that it can be used as roofing in commercial and industrial buildings. The installation of SPF roofing gives a seamless roof due to the self-flashing and conforming property of spray foam. An SPF roofing prevents airflow through spaces in the roof and water infiltration into the building.
Closed cell insulation installed between metal studs in metal buildings adds to the structural strength of the building. Due to its high compressive strength, closed cell SPF insulation boosts the rigidity of metal buildings, thus protecting the building.
