4 Types of Warehouse Insulation, Green, Ohio

Insulating a warehouse serves several important purposes. It keeps the temperature stable, reduces moisture that could cause rust or mold, and improves energy efficiency since the HVAC system won’t have to battle extreme temperatures. If you're in charge of finding the right type insulation for a warehouse, the guide below will take you through some of the best options. 

What to Know About of Warehouse Insulation

1. Cellulose

Cellulose insulation manages to squeeze into tight spaces and work around obstructions, giving your warehouse great overall coverage. A major advantage of cellulose is that it is environmentally friendly. In many products, more than 90% of the content is recycled materials, such as newspapers. It’s sometimes used in combination with spray foam to adequately cover different parts of a building.  

2. Spray Foam 

insulationThis insulation is one of the best on the market. With spray foam, a liquid is dispersed in the area you want to insulate. It expands into foam as it’s expelled from the canister so it can reach as many areas as possible. The material safely works its way around wires and pipes to provide coverage for even the smallest crevices. This liquid contains a polymer called polyurethane that hardens to become a solid cellular plastic.

3. Blanket: Batt & Roll

This is the most commonly used type of insulation, and it is extremely cost-effective. It comes in the form of batts or rolls made from fiberglass, mineral wool, or plastic or natural fibers. It’s fitted and installed between joists, studs, and beams. Good batting can contain preservatives that are also used in food to help to prevent mold. It should also be highly fire-resistant.

4. Rigid Foam Board

Rigid boards come as a foam that has been pre-made into panels and can be cut to fit required spaces. Foam boards are usually made of polystyrene, polyurethane, or fiberglass. While the thickness of the cut changes the amount of insulation, it’s still possible to get a high level of insulation with a relatively thin board. It is also great for blocking out noise.
