Insulating your agricultural buildings with spray foam insulation is an excellent way to stabalise the temperature. It also creates a vapour barrier to eliminate condensation and prevent mould growth that can affect your crops or livestock. It’s also a cost effective way to save on energy bills, especially as you won’t need to keep your equipment or livestock warm.
Agricultural Spray Foam Insulation
Closed cell spray polyurethane (SPF) insulation is the most effective product for insulating new and existing agricultural buildings. It’s incredibly easy to install and can be applied to a variety of different surfaces. Its flexibility allows it to conform to any shape or size of building and can be used in difficult to reach areas that traditional insulation rolls simply cannot.
Agricultural buildings that are uninsulated are susceptible to extremes of temperature in both summer and winter, which can damage stock and food. With as little as 30mm of spray foam insulation, the temperature in an agricultural building will stabilise and it can protect against freezing temperatures, frost, and high winds. It can also help prevent moisture build up which will reduce the risk of mould and fungal growth in food products.
Keeping the temperature of livestock housing moderate and stable means that animals are less stressed, healthier and more productive. This is particularly important in dairy cows and farrowing houses where a reduction in stress levels can increase milk production. It can also improve the quality of wine as it can be insulated in tanks, enabling farmers to regulate the temperature of their wine and control how it is stored. Insulation can also attenuate noise from equipment such as conveyor belts and product sorters. boat insulation
