Agricultural spray foam insulation keeps livestock housing temperatures moderate and consistent. This helps animals stay cooler during the summer and warmer during winter which can help reduce stress and anxiety.
Insulation also helps to reduce noise from machinery like conveyor belts, milk machines and product sorters in barns. This can lead to a more productive environment.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Our closed-cell spray foam insulation can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of agricultural buildings. It creates an airtight seal which prevents drafts and heat loss while keeping the building warm in winter and cool in summer.
Unlike traditional insulation rolls, which must be cut and installed by hand, our spray foam is applied directly to the surface of the metal building. As it expands, it fills in gaps and voids to ensure a full and complete covering. This reduces the u-value of the building delivering significant energy savings compared to other products.
Insulating your agricultural facilities can also prevent damp conditions which favour mould growth and food spoilage. This helps your produce remain in pristine condition for longer and retain its price at market, as well as preventing the spread of disease among livestock. Our insulation can also help attenuate noise from heavy machinery and conveyor belts. It can significantly improve the experience for your livestock and workers.
Agricultural spray foam insulation creates an air barrier that seals the building’s structure, eliminating air infiltration and reducing moisture. It also reduces condensation, mold and mildew which helps to maintain a clean environment inside the barn or farm building.
It keeps the temperature in a barn or other agricultural building stable and helps to prevent energy costs from fluctuating too high. It also keeps the temperature in the barn or building at a comfortable level for livestock, which will help them to stay healthy and productive.
Agricultural buildings can get life-threateningly cold in the winter, and spray foam helps to keep them warm. It also helps to cut down the cost of cooling them in summer, and it makes it easier to regulate indoor humidity. It is also vermin resistant, helping to keep mice and other rodents away from the barn or storage area. This will help reduce the risk of them destroying feed and crops.
Reduced Heat Loss
Insulating your farm buildings with spray foam insulation can stabalise temperatures, act as a vapour barrier and eliminate condensation. This will help to keep your tools and machinery in good condition for longer as well as saving on heating costs. It will also help your livestock feel more comfortable and be healthier as a result. This may save on costly veterinary bills.
Adding agricultural spray foam insulation to your barns and structures can also have soundproofing benefits. This is particularly beneficial if you have heavy machinery like conveyor belts, milk machines and product sorters which generate a lot of noise.
Unlike many other types of insulation, agricultural spray foam insulation can be installed in existing buildings without the need for additional framing or a vapour barrier. This means you can upgrade your farm buildings and save money straight away. It will also help to improve the structural integrity of your building and prevent movement over time.
Reduced Moisture and Condensation
Agricultural buildings that are uninsulated can become damp and cold. This can make livestock sick and create an ideal environment for mould to grow. It can also depreciate machinery or crops and damage the building itself. Spray foam insulation prevents this by regulating the temperature and controlling moisture which helps to protect your animals, food and equipment.
Unlike loose-fill, batt and roll, or reflective insulation which retains moisture and can pass it into any timber, spray foam insulation doesn’t. This makes it ideal for use in older properties. It is also vermin resistant and can be sprayed over existing stone walls without damaging them.
Using closed cell spray foam (Icynene) in your agricultural building will ensure air tightness stopping drafts and cutting energy loss and saving you money. It can be used in metal, concrete, stonework, brick or slate and it doesn’t require the use of harmful chemicals or toxic elements. It’s also BBA and ETA approved with a 25 year manufacturer’s warranty.
