Once the foundation of the metal building has been constructed, one of the most important tasks that can be carried out on a metal building is the insulating steel framed buildings . Of course, insulation can add time and cost to your construction and can be installed or not depending on your circumstances. However, most owners choose the value-added option of metal insulation because it not only protects the contents but also provides an excellent working and living environment. Especially in the hot summer months and in the cold winter months. It will also prevent moisture condensation, which can cause rusting of the structure, and greatly prolong its life.
Types Of Insulation We Offer
As a specialist steel construction supplier, we offer 2 types of insulation, Radiant Barrier Insulation, Spray Foam Insulation and, in general, we recommend Radiant Barrier Insulation if you need to enhance the fire resistance of your metal construction. Our designers will also give you detailed advice on these options during the design process.
Installing Radiant Barrier Insulation
The process of installing Radiant Barrier Insulation is generally built together with the metal structure. First, we need to remove the outer panels and apply double-sided tape vertically to the frame studs, starting from the top and working up to the foundations. The insulation is spread out in the white direction. The final step is to place the building panels on top of the insulation. The panels are then screwed into the metal frame.
Installing Spray Foam Insulation
If you find Installing Radiant Barrier Insulation too complicated or difficult, then you can opt for Spray Foam Insulation, which is highly insulating and provides a stable indoor environment. It is also resistant to insect infestation. There is no need to carry out the removal of the outer panels, only the foam insulation covering the area you want to treat is applied using a sprayer. However, it is important to note that the foam is difficult to clean once it has been formed, so it is best to ensure that it is formed in one go. It is also important to ensure that bolts and component joints are covered to ensure that the space is airtight.
