 COMMERCIAL PROJECTS
Choosing Spray Foam Insulation will save your business, school, church, or organization a substantial amount of money as well as being the best choice for our environment. Spray polyurethane foam will eliminate heat transfer unlike standard insulation which acts as a filter.

Franklin’s Foam Insulation has been the first choice for many large industrial projects as well as schools and churches in the DFW area. Franklin’s Foam works with Energywise Structures to guarantee the heating/cooling cost of the structure. Commercial buildings that have been engineered by Energywise Structures and insulated by Franklin’s Foam Insulation typically have 50%-70% savings over a standard design with standard insulation.

 

 Commercial Wall Insulation

Spray foam insulation could be the best insulation system yet invented.

  • On the inside of the wall panel of a building it has an extremely high R value, it has been shown to dramatically increase the racking strength in steel and timber frame buildings, in some instances has been specified to prevent wind uplift in commercial roofing systems.
  • On the outside of the building it can be used as a combined vapor and air barrier system and is recognized as such when applied to the American Air Barrier Association standards. It can also be used below grade for the insulation of basements and foundation.
  • It does not emit VOCs or hydrocarbons and has a proven track record over the last 20 years.

Specialty Applications
Tanks and Vessels

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) can be used in a variety of different applications, one of those is tanks and vessels. SPF can be a solution for cold vessel insulation for products such as wine, chemicals, and soft drinks. It is excellent to store products that need controlled temperatures. SPF systems are perfect for these type insulations because of the superior durability and ease of application.

Spray Polyurethane Foam can also be used for hot/warm vessel insulation. If there is a need to maintain temperature control and/or viscosity levels of chemicals or other liquids, SPF fluid-applied systems and protective coatings offer superior performance.
Sealants

Use polyurethane foam sealant to improve your homes “envelope” in its outer walls, ceiling, windows and floors. This is a cost effective way to improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort.

   1. Thermal and sound insulation
   2. Seals windows and doors
   3. Blocks insects and rodents

Cold Storage

The performance of a spray applied polyurethane foam insulation (SPF) system for cold storage facilities can be affected by all the component parts of the building structure, as well as the atmospheric conditions inside and outside the structure. Proper structural design, specifications review, contractor and material selection, coupled with the compatibility and positioning of the various components of the building are a necessity to produce a successful cold storage facility.

Consult with the designer/specifier and the successful contractor to receive written confirmation of their agreement/opinion to all facets of the cold storage project, including, but not be limited to, material selection, moisture vapor transmission, load design, expansion joints, and refrigeration requirements, flashing details, and floor, wall, ceiling preparation, and pull down schedule.

Types of cold storage facilities

   1. Refrigerated warehouses generally have a single function of storing previously processed or frozen food at a constant temperature between -40oC (-40oF) and 10oC (50oF). They are often one room buildings. Packaged goods are stored on pallets or food racks.
   2. Processing plants for meats, poultry, dairy or other food products are multi-functional type structures which are quite complex. They typically consist of many rooms, each with a certain function, operating temperature and humidity condition.
   3. Distribution centers are multi-room buildings for packaged dry goods, frozen foods, fresh produce, baked goods and dairy products. In addition to the above, these centers may contain specialty rooms such as banana rooms or ice cream holding rooms.
   4. Existing facilities may be converted to another use, i.e., a cooler may be converted to a freezer, or a new room may be added within an existing structure.
