Property Insulation

Commercial Insulation – What Types to use for your Property

When you insulate a commercial property, or consider insulating it, it is important to consider the key factors and properties of your building in order to insulate for optimum results. Ask yourself, what do you want to achieve with the insulation? This could be soundproofing, temperature control, structural integrity and many more reasons. Each building has unique specifications that require professional analysis in order to recommend the optimum process of insulation. Regarding the insulating products, there are a variety on today’s market that can be used to efficiently insulate your property. However, each product has its own unique benefits and drawbacks, therefore, proper consultation or surveying of a property, is key to a successful project. Data-driven approaches are key to proper insulation and, thereby, following this article may aid you to you and your insulation project but providing relevant insights into what types of commercial insulation can be used for your specific building.

Common Commercial Property Areas

Commercial properties typically need insulation for ducts, fluid lines, pipes and storage tanks. Insulation products can be made from an array of materials from wool or glass fibre to foam insulation. The common areas and types of insulation for commercial properties tend to require a form of temperature maintenance and to conserve energy. Due to this common factor, EcoSpray Foam Systems highly recommends the use of spray foam insulation. In addition to providing optimum heat conservation, due to the superior R-Value of closed cell spray foam, it can also provide water resistance, structural integrity, soundproofing (when using open cell foam insulation) and numerous more benefits. However, various insulation products may be applicable depending on your property.

Types of Commercial Properties

1. Warehouses:
Warehouses are, most of the time, insulated for thermal efficiency, temperature control, temperature regulation and soundproofing. Robust metal structures, metal exteriors and interiors and other factors make warehouses desperately need a form of thermal insulation.

2. Offices:
Installing insulation in commercial offices and corporate buildings usually involves additional factors such as cost-effectiveness, to keep overhead costs down, sustainability for an eco-friendly outlook, soundproofing for a friendlier work environment and other factors.

3. Barns & Agricultural Properties:
These types of properties rely heavily on temperature control and regulation. Therefore, using an efficient insulator can aid to this process. Additionally, controlling humidity is important for barns and agricultural buildings, therefore, finding the correct type of insulation for these means is pivotal.

4. Containers:
Container insulation shares similar characteristics with warehouses, when insulating. Due to the solid metal composition of the property, in its non-insulant form, containers allow heat transference and are naturally bad at preserving energy. Therefore, insulating containers can be important for energy efficiency and to preserve heat. Due to the fact that they are the main property of transportation across long distances, it is important to keep your containers insulated to best benefit the goods of transportation.

Therefore, due to the fact that different commercial properties each hold their own importance and need for insulation it may be important to assess an array of insulators to see which one best insulates your property.
