The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
In the past, spray foam insulation was typically used during building renovations because the very nature of its application allows it to be installed in an area which would otherwise have to be demolished and rebuilt in order to hang traditional insulation. In today's world, foam insulation has proven itself to have more benefits than ease of application and is appropriate in many more situations.
Fire Resistant Properties
Spray applied fireproofing offers qualities which makes it an exceptional insulation material. Not only does it keep warm or cool air inside as appropriate for the season, it simply won't catch fire if an electrical short should happen in the wall.
A particular commercial application in which spray insulation stands out exceptionally well is its use as structural steel beam insulation. Whether the beams are to be left exposed in a heavy manufacturing environment or are going to be cosmetically treated with drywall or custom woodworking, the beams have to be insulated to meet code.
Spray foam's molecular property's make it flame-retardant. It can minimize destruction of fire and keep it from spreading throughout the building. It is commonly used for steel beam insulation and spray applied fireproofing.
