Belle Chasse business in need of highly qualified spray foam contractors for industrial insulation
This Louisiana company needed industrial insulation to keep up with their standards. Here is their story.
Point 8 Power Company, a Belle Chasse, Louisiana operating company, manufacturers and services offshore electrical generation equipment, so they know a thing or two about the value of energy efficiency. The company has worked within the oil and gas market in the Gulf of Mexico and across the globe for more than sixty years, and they’ve maintained a standard of excellence that has netted awards from the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company, Saudi Aramco, and Cutler-Hammer in addition to ISO certification.
When they decided to invest in two pound spray foam industrial insulation to make their mobile power control distribution buildings airtight and water-resistant, they required a partnership with a company that was similarly dedicated to excellence in their field. In order to uphold their own reputation and certifications, they needed to be sure that the contractors they hired likewise maintain their professional certifications.
Louisiana’s SPFA-Certified Master Spray Foam Contractors
Before even considering a company for the job, Point 8 required proof of licenses from the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance, the Building Performance Institute, the Louisiana Licensing Board for Contractors, and the Better Business Bureau. While there are several spray foam contractors in Louisiana, Sunlight Contractors, LLC was able to provide the credentials that Point 8 Power Company needed in order to develop a working partnership.
Once our professional integrity had been confirmed, it was time to get to work. Point 8 Power Company’s mobile power control distribution buildings are distributed to locations throughout the United States. Because they’re used to supply power in harsh environments such as offshore oil rigs, these structures must be airtight and water-resistant. Two pound closed cell spray foam industrial insulation provides both properties.
Cured spray polyurethane foam is completely non-toxic; however, in its liquid stage, it can cause coughing and other minor irritations. Therefore, when applying spray foam to any surface, the first step is to ensure the safety of passersby and employees by cordoning off the spray zone and providing cautionary signs. Corey and the rest of our crew of installers are outfitted with PPE, or personal protective equipment, which keeps them safe from particulates.
Once safety protocol was in place, the SPFA-certified contractors applied three inches of two pound closed cell spray foam to the structure’s underside via heated hoses connected to a state-of-the-art Graco reactor. With fine-tuned precision, the reactor mixes the chemicals used in the spray foam at the exact temperature required to produce an insulation that is safe, energy-efficient, and consistent in quality.
Though we believe that cleaning up after oneself should be a part of any job, it’s vitally important when applying spray foam because leaving equipment or chemicals behind could pose a danger to employees. We don’t leave a site until it’s better than when we arrived, which is just one more reason that we stand apart from other contractors.
Improved structural integrity with spray foam industrial insulation
The application of two pound closed cell spray foam industrial insulation makes the mobile units models of structural integrity, sealing out moisture that could be a serious corrosion problem to a metal structure in the Gulf of Mexico. This drastically enhances the lifespan of metal buildings.
Point 8 Power Company did their due diligence prior to hiring Sunlight Contractors, LLC as their partner is spray foam installation. Was it worth the effort? Here’s what Karl, our primary contact with Point 8 Energy had this to say about it, “Ira and Corey at Sunlight Contractors were on time and completed the project in one day. The people at Sunlight were very knowledgeable and answered every question about their spray foam product. I will use them again in the future and have 3 more industrial buildings contracted for them to start on.”
