Commercial Uses of Spray Foam – Innovative and Cost Saving

Sunlight Contractors install spray foam to gym ceilingWhat do a CrossFit gym, a box truck delivering crawfish, the Superdome, and a marine construction company have in common? They’ve all benefited from commercial uses of spray foam insulation application.

While insulation may not ever win awards for sexiest construction product, it’s certainly one of the most diverse. Each of these businesses found powerful ways to employ the unique properties of spray foam insulation to improve their business and save money. Some may surprise you!

  1. ROOF DECK INSULATION: We added five inches of spray foam insulation to the roof deck of CrossFit NOLA’s gym, a converted metal warehouse that reached triple digit temperatures during the summer months. Within hours of the application, the gym’s comfort level increased as its temperatures dropped.
  2. BOX TRUCK INSULATION: George Chin of Jazzmen Rice, a New Orleans-based seafood company, needed to deliver crawfish to Jazz Fest. We insulated his company’s box truck with closed cell spray foam, and now the storage area stays cool enough to get the job done even during New Orleans’ hot season.
  3. SPRAY FOAM ROOFING: After suffering damage from Hurricane Katrina, the Superdome needed a roof remodel that would weather future storms. Spray foam roofing clings to the unusually shaped roof, repels water and UV rays, and resists wind lift, making it the perfect candidate for any commercial structure.
  4. FLOTATION MEDIUM: Perhaps the most innovative use of closed cell spray foam in New Orleans was undertaken in partnership with By Land or Sea Marine Construction. We applied closed cell spray foam beneath a pier being constructed by the company, and the water-tight nature of the spray foam allowed the pier to float a full six inches above water while increasing the structural integrity of the pier!

Spray foam insulation has been a popular choice for homes and businesses for thirty years, but we’re still amazed by the versatility of the product. Call today to speak with one of our SPFA-certified spray foam experts and see how our commercial uses of spray foam can help your business!
