G&M Services can expertly install insulation formulated particularly for commercial buildings. Did you know that insulation can help provide your commercial business with a tight, envelope seal that helps weatherproof your entire building? Insulation serves many purposes within a commercial building, and there’s numerous types of insulation to input during the construction process for commercial buildings. Whether you’re opting for thermal, board, or reflective insulation — G&M Services can expertly install various insulation types. Here’s what you need to know about commercial building insulation.
Thermal Insulation in Commercial Buildings
The installation of thermal insulation in commercial buildings is an incredibly important component of the construction process. Thermal insulation provides a barrier between walls, ceilings, and floors. This thermal insulation barrier increases sound-proofing, provides fire protection, keeps heating and cooling inside of a building, and can control noise. The noise and fire protection control are particularly important for apartment units, whose density can pose a major fire hazard.
Reflective insulation is commonly referred to as foil insulation in commercial building installations. An interesting fact about reflection insulation? It cannot degrade over time and is unaffected by moisture. Since it is resistant to weather changes, it’s an excellent selection as a vapor barrier. It is non-toxic in comparison to other harsher forms of insulation, but can potentially be an electrical hazard in buildings with faulty wiring — so it’s application needs to be carefully considered.
You likely haven’t heard of board insulation before, but it’s an excellent installation for specialized facilities. G&M Services uses fire-rated brands like Thermafiber, Rockwool, and Owens Cornings for all fire-applications of board insulation. Board insulation serves as a rigid barrier between walls, ceilings, and floors. Thermafiber has specifically been awarded SAFETY Act Designation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which provides liability protection to business owners in the event of a terrorist attack.
