agricultural spray foam insulation is often the best way to insulate new and existing agricultural buildings. It is more cost effective and efficient than many other forms of insulation and can be applied to difficult to reach areas with ease. The benefits of insulating an agricultural building with spray foam are that it will reduce heat loss, stabilise temperatures and act as a vapour barrier and eliminate condensation. Keeping the temperature in an agricultural building warmer will also help to prevent the spoilage of crops and feed by moulds and other undesirable bacteria which thrive in damp conditions. The increased air circulation provided by the spray foam will also prevent the build up of dust and spores which can contaminate food.
Most people think of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) as an insulation used primarily in dwellings, but it can have far reaching applications. Farmers and ranchers are taking advantage of its ability to keep buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Closed-cell spray foam insulation like Omaha Spray Foam’s Barnseal is an excellent option for insulating livestock facilities. This type of closed-cell foam is made up of closely packed cells that are tense, dense and rigid. This makes it resistant to rodent penetration, reducing the risk of disease in livestock. It also improves ventilation and is highly durable, making it a great choice for an agricultural environment. Barnseal can be used to insulate poultry houses as well because it is made from a non-irritant material that chickens can peck at without damage.
